At The Old Boathouse Stores
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
- Helston 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
- Cornish Beer - Doom Bar, Skinners, Cornish Pilsner
Fresh Fish is available to order, delivered six days a week.

An extensive range of other fresh fish can be ordered for next day collection (except Sunday). Most fish is sourced locally and the crab & lobster is from Sennen Cove, in season. Cuts and sizes prepared to your requirements.
