English Spirit Distillery prepares to open on Friday

English Spirit are gearing up to open the doors of their new state-of-the-art distillery, on Friday 1st October. After three years of planning and building, the team can’t wait to welcome locals and visitors alike to their new home at Treguddick Manor, Launceston.

The new distillery sits in a renovated agricultural building, in the grounds of the historic manor house. Standing at over 620 square meters in size, the architecturally designed space will house a cafe, bar, distillery shop, and of course, the distillery. Along with a lakeside patio area, perfect for relaxing in the glorious Cornish sunshine, and a landscape garden housing five geodesic domes, growing a range of produce and botanicals.

Distillery Tours & Tastings will captivate visitors with the intricacies of making the highest quality spirits. Whilst on the tour, visitors will learn about the production process first-hand, and how the distillery team turns the copper pot still, before bottling up their award-winning spirits. Tour guests will also be invited to wander around the geodesic grow domes, offering a sensory experience like no other.

When opening on the 1st of October there will be three distillery experiences on offer; a ‘General’ tour covering the wide variety of spirits English Spirit produce, as well as a specific ‘Rum’ and ‘Gin’ tours. Each tour & tasting lasts ninety minutes, costs £20pp, and is available to book directly via their website: www.englishspirit.uk/treguddick

The bar will also be an impressive feature of the new distillery, stocking over 40 different spirits and liqueurs, all made by the distillery - which English Spirit believes will make the bar one of a kind. Whether customers fancy a mouth-watering vodka, a divine gin, an experimental single malt, luscious liqueur, or a tipple of Britain’s original rum, Old Salt, they will most definitely be delighted by their serve.
