Colwith Farm Distillery, Cornwall's only single estate distillery, and the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery introduce a new limited edition 'Crowning Royale' cocktail in celebration of the King's Coronation on May 6.

Crowning Royale is a twist on the Kir royale cocktail, crafted by Colwith's expert mixologist using Aval Dor Original Cornish Gin, Duchy of Cornwall Nursery myrtle, Tregothnan Earl Grey Tea, and Crème de Cassis.

The new limited edition premium cocktail is topped with fizz, offering a classic and elegant toast fit for a Royal celebration.

United by a shared sustainability ethos, the new cocktail inspired by King Charles' love of the natural world, uses myrtle, grown at the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery, infused in Colwith's Aval Dor Original Cornish Gin.

Myrtle, the evergreen woody shrub, is historically intertwined with Royal traditions and considered a symbol of love, good luck, and prosperity.

Using both the myrtle berries and leaves, the new Crowning Royale cocktail celebrates the tart and floral notes of bergamot and eucalyptus, rounded off with a touch of fruit.

Steve Dustow, Colwith Farm Distillery founder, said: “We wanted to create a special tipple with a taste of the Duchy, to mark this historic occasion.

"In respect for King Charles as an ardent nature enthusiast, and links with Cornwall, we’ve blended our expertise with Cornish potatoes, grown on our family farm, and Myrtle grown at the Nursery to create a one-of-a-kind, sustainable and delicious drink. Yeghes da!”

Darren Topps, head gardener at Duchy of Cornwall Nursery added: “It’s been a real pleasure working with Colwith Farm Distillery on this very special Coronation cocktail. From the very beginning, the journey from creation to the final product has been rewarding.

“I came up with the idea of using myrtle from the Nursery as it is known to be symbolic of love, good luck and prosperity, the perfect ingredient to celebrate the coronation of our King.”

Unlike most distilleries that buy mass-produced ethanol, Colwith Farm Distillery makes everything from scratch, using potatoes grown on their family farm to sustainably create their award-winning Aval Dor (Cornish for potato) spirits.

The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery sits at the heart of the Duchy estate with views across to Restormel Castle. 

The limited-edition cocktail Crowning Royale is available now from £25 for a pack of three pre-made cocktails serving 6, via Colwith Farm Distillery, in-store and online.
