TIM MADDAMS

From River Cottage to The Wrecking Coast, dedicated wild forager, foodie and aspiring drinks creator, Tim Maddams had developed a delicious take on a classic Port but wanted to incorporate elderberries and local wine. Having worked closely with Polgoon Vineyard, he then contacted us to help develop this exciting idea.

Polgoon Vineyards supplied the wine, we turned some of that Cornish wine into brandy to fortify the drink and elderberries were brought in with help from our local forager. After trials to get the flavours spot on, Elderberry Porth was born!

It’s been great fun to help bring this idea to life and shows what can be achieved by the collaboration of like minded folk in the West Country!

2022 is the first year of commercial production, with only a very limited number of bottles available. We are excited to see the future… ‘Porth’ is soon to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Enjoy neat, sipped on a winter’s walk from a hip flask, with prosecco for celebrations, as a hot toddy with orange, honey and clove on cold evenings or brighten up a summer Spritz for a real berry blast. Enjoy!

Tasting Notes

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. A month before bottling we gradually add sweetness to bring out the rich, dark red-berry flavours of the sloes but not too much, that would hide their natural dryness, then finish with Cornish Wildflower honey from local hives around Cornwall.
