11 Nov Colwith shares the Cornish festive spirit in style
Colwith Farm Distillery near Fowey is offering Santa a helping-hand this season with a whole host of ways to share the festive spirit. From make-your-own gin kits to limited edition Christmas spirits and festive shindigs with tutored tastings, Cornwall’s first plough to bottle distillery has yuletide gin-spiration covered.
Party time –
Colwith Farm Distillery’s ‘Christmas at Colwith’ evenings include a welcome Stafford’s Cornish Mulled Gin followed by a mini tour of the distillery. There will be a tutored tasting, including sampling limited edition Christmas pudding vodka and Cornish Christmas gin, accompanied by a winter holiday charcuterie board. The events cost from £25 per person and run from 6-11pm on Saturday 30 November and 7 December.
Why not gather together a group of family, friends or work colleagues? This experience can be booked for larger groups (20+ persons) throughout December.
