Why did we start our particular journey into the world of craft distilling?
After a challenge from our wives back in 2015, The Wrecking Coast Distillery came to be, and it’s been a personal passion project for us ever since.
Born in Tintagel, our philosophy remains the same: create spirits we enjoy using local ingredients that give the nod to our Cornish roots.
To make our award-winning creations, we use a unique blend of cutting edge still technology and a more bespoke, hands-on approach.
We believe it’s this balance of approach and close attention to detail that makes all the difference when creating our distinctive spirits. It’s this passion that means we can proudly say “we made that”
Born in Tintagel. Born to be enjoyed.
What to call our very own distillery?
It started with the desire for an identity that was rooted in the area where our gin was born: Tintagel, Cornwall. Tintagel resides in an area known as The Wrecking Coast, a name we have embraced.
In the height of summer, with its soft southerly winds, clear blue skies and almost tropical aquamarine seas, The Wrecking Coast is idyllic. In the depths of winter, with 30-foot waves crashing relentlessly against the towering slate and granite cliffs, the true power and majesty of raw nature is awe inspiring.
To capture this, we commissioned local artist and Camelford Gallery owner, John Blight, to provide us with the unique piece of art that appears on our labels.
The Wrecking Coast Collection

Born in Tintagel. Born To Be Enjoyed.
Fresh Cornish clotted cream, cold distilled under vacuum is combined with our own 12 botanical gin to give you a three dimensional flavour profile.
9 botanicals including fresh lemon and lime peel and locally foraged fresh scurvy grass creates a robust, juniper led gin with bold citrus notes, hints of liquorice and peppery heat from the scurvy grass.
We start by making a simple but flavoursome gin with plenty of juniper, add sloes and a subtle recipe of orange and lemon zest, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg then allow to gently steep for at least three months.
Berry and Applesauce sweetness with spice hints and a citrus balance. We distill with fresh pressed apple juice from Polgoon and locally foraged Rowen Berry and Rosehip.
