Gorgeous small-batch spirits
The Falmouth Distilling Co
LOVEDAY FALMOUTH DRY GIN
Bright, breezy, and beautifully rounded, a celebration of this beautiful part of Cornwall we call home
How It Started
Two chefs, a scientist and a distillery on the Cornish coast.The idea of working together to create a distillery had been brewing for some time, and as it happens, the upheaval of lockdown during the summer madness that was 2020 was just what needed to galvanise us into action.
The three of us have known each other for god knows how many years, and it’s safe to say our distillery is making thorough good use of our shared knowledge and experience in food preparation, recipe development, food science, alcohol production and design.
The goal? To create spirits with a meticulous eye on craftmanship and flavour, inspired by the sea, landscape, vibrancy and history of Falmouth, this brilliant place we call home.
Loveday Falmouth Dry Gin
We launched our first offering in April 2021: Loveday Falmouth Dry, a carefully crafted small batch gin, distilled with fresh botanicals, to celebrate the coastline that’s so integral to where we live and work. It’s been pretty busy since!
Loveday is an old Cornish name dating back to the Middle Ages. Days on which peacekeeping efforts between quarrelling regions were held came to be known as leofdaeg in Old English, or love days to you and me. Children born on these dates were often named Loveday in celebration: a rather gorgeous thing that’s more than worth raising a glass to!
So What Next?
So what’s to come? We are getting ready to launch our new gin, a bittersweet, aromatic and subtly floral thing, involving grapefruit and cardamom, that we can’t get enough of!
We also have organic, made-from-scratch rum resting in oak barrels… but that’s a story for 2022.
