POCKETFUL OF STONES
HANDCRAFTED IN CORNWALL
distilled with passion
From behind the bar,
to the distillery and back to the bar.
That, in short, is the Pocketful of Stones story.
We’d love to share an elaborate, well-structured story with you here about how everything we’ve done led to this point. The truth is that we all worked and lived together in bars in central London. We made loads of friends, had lots of fun, and created all kinds of memories – most of which we can’t talk about on the website.
Maybe, more importantly, we all learned lots and lots about spirits and fell in love with their rich history. Abandoning the crowds of London for the wilds of Cornwall, we are pouring all that experience into Pocketful of Stones.
Here, we invite you to join in our journey…
Shaun used his experience of working in hospitality in Durban, Belfast, and London to open his own pub in Fitzrovia. Named after his grandfather, the Lukin quickly became known for its eclectic selection of drinks, its friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere, and, thanks to Balazs, its exceptional menu.
After years of tastings, pairings, distillery tours, and altogether too much drinking, Shaun decided to put all that knowledge to good use. So in the cellar of the Lukin our first gin, Caspyn, and Pocketful of Stones were born!
The decision to set up in Penzance was an obvious one for this surf-loving Durban native who remains the driving force behind our creativity.

Born in West Penwith, we’ve taken inspiration from the surrounding Atlantic Ocean. Of all her moods it’s those clear, fresh spring mornings that please us the most. Crisp and refreshing served with tonic, charming in a Martini and captivating in a Negroni..
