curio spirits company

The Curio Spirits Company first started in 2012. Husband and wife team William and Rubina Tyler-Street took two years to perfect the recipe for their flgaship product, the Curio Rock Samphire Gin (now known as Wild Coast Gin). Being bold and adventurous with their spirits, which the founders rightly point out is, 'Curio by name, curious by nature', they then went on to release cocoa nib and cardamom vodkas, alongside a range of other products.

Based in Mullion, west Cornwall, this is a brand that dares their consumers to be adventurous, and to try something new.

rotary evaporation distillation

Rotary Evaporators (or Rotovaps) employ high-tech distillation techniques to help distillers really integrate sometimes unobtainable flavours into their products, and has been known to help incorporate flavours like shiso leaf into alcohol.

The main difference is the temperature at which the distillation occurs, which is around 30 degrees. Most stills run on a much higher heat, from around 80-100 degrees. Therefore, flavour that is produced from this style of distillation can be likened from a fresh cut orange to a marmalade.

Essentially, the rotovaps extract delicate flavours without the higher heat used in traditional distillation. This style of distillation is employed by the Curio Spirits Company.
