pocketful of stones distillery

Located just outside of Penzance, Pocketful of Stones have grown their range from their flagship Caspyn gin to include a variety of spirits and liqueurs, including Cornish absinthe and a 'Summer Cup'. The producer seeks to allow the environment to influence their recipes, and seems to create their recipes with particular ideas in mind. Caspyn gin is likened to a 'crisp Spring morning', while the Midsummer Dry Gin has been designed to 'amplify those hot, long Summer days spent in the sun with family and friends.'

pushing the boat out

Absinthe is a tricky beast, one that is an essential ingredient behind any bar, but also one that isn't well known beyond cocktail bartenders and aficionados. Misinformation is rife with the spirit, with many believing it to be a high-strength product best avoided, and others believing it to be either illegal, which has never been the case in the UK, or a hallucinogenic, which it is not.

The delicious anise flavoured spirit may often be green in colour or colourless, and is made with botanicals alongside the 'grand wormwood'. The Cornish absinthe that has been created by Pocketful of Stones, Moreven, is made with the addition of Cornish seaweed and Wormwood from St. Ives.
