The Cornish Distilling Company

Bude, Cornwall

Husband and wife, Richard & Fionagh Harding had plans to expand their Artisan Food Village business by distilling on-site. They met Tom Read – a local with a PhD in biochemistry, barista skills and a keen interest in cocktails and spirits – and a collaboration was formed. They began experimenting with molasses to make their own rum from scratch, which although time consuming, affords them more control over the final flavour. It is also quite rare to find a completely British made rum, giving their product a unique selling point.

In September 2007 their first product – Kalkar Coffee Rum – was ready to release. Since then Head Distiller, Tom, has continued to ferment molasses from sugar cane on-site and experimented with ingredients to add Morvenna Spiced Rum and Morvenna White Rum to the collection.
