Established in Mawnan (near Falmouth) in 2018, husband and wife team Andy and Elizabeth Bradbury create their own base spirit for the production of their range, some of which are then infused with locally foraged fruits.
The small-batch production process used by the distillery creates just 100 bottles at a time, and products are created based on traditional recipes.
base spirit production
It takes a lot of work for a producer to create their own base spirit, and it's something that not many producers can say that they do. After fermenting your source of carbohydrate, the resulting slightly alcoholic liquid must be distilled at least two times in to bring it to an appropriate strength.
Many distilleries will purchase in what is known as a 'neutral spirit', which is an alcoholic liquid that has been distilled to 96% (EU law), often this comes from Holland. From here, distilleries can re-distill this neutral spirit with their botanicals to create their gin. It's a much easier process, and so Rosemullion should be commended for keeping true heritage for Cornwall, creating the entire product in the county.
