Sharp’s Brewery

With a small micro brewing plant and an ambition to brew 500 pints per week to pay the mortgage, Sharp’s Brewery was born. Brewed using time-honoured techniques and only the finest quality ingredients, Sharp’s beers have developed a signature style which continues to this day – balanced, elegant, highly drinkable with a complexity of flavours and moreish finish.

Padstow Brewing Company

Padstow Brewing Company was set up in 2013 using a 100-litre kit in an old surf shower. It wasn’t long before its beer was being sold in Cornish pubs and more space and capacity was needed.

The company has grown quickly, and is now able to brew around 9,000 pints a week at its custom-built brewery on the outskirts of the town. It has a small, dedicated team which helps with brewing, hand-bottling, and distribution.

Tarquin’s Cornish Gin

Established in 2012, Tarquin’s is crafted on the wild Cornish coast by self-taught master distiller, Tarquin Leadbetter. It is proudly known as Cornwall’s original, independent, family-run distillery.

Championing the most traditional techniques alongside progressively modern approaches, the team are passionate about bringing a slice of Cornish sunshine to every glass. Its iconic flagship gin, Tarquin’s Cornish Dry, a contemporary Cornish twist on a classic London Dry, busting with zesty citrus notes and fragrant floral aromas, provides the canvas upon which all its growth has been shaped.

Tarquin’s now boast an amazingly diverse range of internationally award-winning spirits that each bring their own special appeal to the mix. The culmination of the team’s efforts were realised in 2017, by winning the esteemed crown of “World’s Best Gin” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The beating hearts of the distillery are Tarquin’s three 250 litre, flame-fired copper pot stills – Tamara, Senara & Tressa. The newest addition to the team is Ferarra – a state of the art, one-of-a-kind 500 litre copper still. Working in conjunction, Tarquin finely tunes and orchestrates the unique personalities of each still to create the beloved spirits.

Underpinned by an ethos of creative expression and innovation, all Tarquin’s gins are born in celebration of its Cornish heritage. They constantly take inspiration from local surroundings and fellow Cornish creatives. Post distillation, every award-winning bottle leaves the distillery having been waxed, stamped and signed by hand.

Established in 1999, Cornish Orchards is a cider and soft drink producer based in Duloe, Cornwall. Despite their growth, they continue to use traditional methods of production while adapting modern technology to produce consistent, premium quality drinks. 

Their ciders are made using 100% freshly pressed apple juice which are then fermented, matured and bottled on site. 

All their ciders are gluten-free and suitable for vegans. They only use natural sugars, no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners, and achieve maximum flavour by maturing at ambient temperatures over the cool Cornish winter months. 

If you’re looking for a way to warm up this winter, head over to their stand to try a cup of their Wassail Mulled Cider which is an aromatic brew of cider and apple juice which has been tastefully infused with fresh oranges and hand-blended spices. It makes for the perfect winter warmer! 

For those who prefer the alcohol-free option, try their warmed mulled apple juice (apple juice infused with fresh oranges and hand-blended spices) or they have a selection of soft juices available.

Knightor Winery

Knightor Winery makes premium quality, limited production wines from grapes grown in English vineyards, as well as its own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornwall coast. 

England’s marginal climate gives low grape yields which maximise taste but increase cost, so Knightor only makes still and sparkling rose and white wines, which are true to the fruit and retain an elegance which is part of the inherent character of English wine.
