An award-winning Cornish distillery is now taking bookings for tours in the run up to its official opening in two months.

Visitors are now able to book Tour & Tasting experiences at English Spirit’s brand new distillery at Treguddick Manor, Launceston, when it opens in October.

The distillery, who have won awards including World’s Best Vodka, World’s Best Gin, and World’s Best Rum are looking forward to opening the doors of their state-of-the-art distillery in Cornwall, which will be over 620 square meters in size.

The distillery will house a visitors centre, bar, cafe and shop, and will officially open on October 1.

However, due to demand the English Spirit team has decided to allow customers to book tours now.

There will be three fascinating tour options available to visitors; the first being a ‘General Tour & Tasting’ as well as a ‘Gin Tour & Tasting’ and a ‘Rum Tour & Tasting’ where visitors can revel in the intricacies of making each spirit from scratch.

With the opening date only seven weeks away, visitors can pre-book their experience now, via English Spirit’s website.

The ‘General Tour’ will be on offer seven days a week, giving visitors the opportunity to experience first-hand how the dedicated team produces the widest variety of spirits and liqueurs distilled in the UK, all under one roof.

Both the gin and rum tours will be available to book twice a week, where the tour coordinator will delve deeper into the technicalities of producing both of these spirits.

The rum tour is one of Britain’s only rum-focused distillery tours, where visitors will learn about English Spirit’s technique of fermenting 100% pure sugar cane molasses, to create their rum, which has been awarded a ‘World’s Best’ title.

Each of the respective tours will last 90 minutes, and also include a guided tasting allowing visitors to sample a range of gin & gin liqueurs, or a selection of rums to sip.

James Lawrence, General Manager at Treguddick, said: "We're extremely excited to open up this one-of-a-kind distillery and visitor experience, which will combine our distilling expertise with produce from one of the UK's top food & drink producing regions to produce truly spectacular results.

"We hope to make a fine addition to the thriving Cornish food & drink scene: we can't wait!"

When visitors book on a distillery tour and tasting, they will also be invited to wander around the geodesic domes installed on the west paddock of Treguddick.

Inspired by the Eden Project, a local landmark, the company says the domes will house over 30 varieties of plants and botanicals, growing fresh produce used in the spirits and restaurant.

The tour and tasting experiences are priced at £20 per person, last 90 minutes, and are available to book now via the English Spirit website:
