Drink Well

Drink Well - Drink Cornish Gin
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
  • Tarquins Sea Dog and Rhubard & Raspberry 35cl
  • Helston Wild Coast Gin 70cl
  • Caspyn Gin and Marmalade Old Tom - from Long Rock, Penzance
  • Caspyn Summer Cup - a take on Pimms but better (in our opinion)
  • Staffords Gin - from the fridge and neat worth a try
  • Aval Dor vodka - vodka at the top of its class
  • St Ives Cider - farmhouse, dry and medium
  • Cornish Beer - Doom Bar, Skinners, Harbour, Dynamite and Cornish Pilsner
