Our "reCAPTCHA" test on our contact page has been updated. Hopefully this will make it easier to send emails to us and also reduce the number of duplicates we used to get.
New products in our Cornish/Cove section - tin accessory box with our local artist's design on the top.
New on the Cornish food front for 2018 is Freda's Cornish peanut butter. More details on the Groceries page.

As well as having some of the best food in the country, Cornwall is also producing some of the best gins and spirits, too..
The Old Boathouse is proud of its range of Cornish gin. As well as stocking "the best gin in the world", Tarquin's Navy Strength we also have a fire cracker of a gin, Staffords.
Staffords, along with Aval Dor vodka is distilled from Cornish potatoes. I can affirm that the vodka is the closest thing you can find to Irish Poteen and the gin, straight from a very cold fridge, is a gin you will remember for a very long time. Here is what we have.
- Tarquin Original 35cl & 70cl bottles
- Helston Rock Samphire Gin 70cl
- Caspyn Gin - from Long Rock, Penzance
- Helsto Gin Cup - a take on Pimms but better (in our opinion)
- Staffords Gin - from the fridge and neat
- Aval Dor vodka - vodka at the top of its class
- St Ives Cider - farmhouse, dry and medium>/li>
- Cornish Beer - Doom Bar, Skinners, St Austell, Rebel
