A group of farmers in Cornwall, southern England, released a new Gin in early May.
It’s called Stafford and has two peculiarities. Besides being produced by Colwith farm, - founded in 1904 and one of the largest potato producers in the UK - this Gin derives from the their vodka potato - Aval Dor.
The Stafford is then distilled with botanicals grown on the farm like lemongrass, rosemary and bay leaf, in addition to juniper, coriander, lemon zest, almonds and macadamia nuts.
This potato Gin and water from Cornwall, has a earthy aroma as well as citric taste. The poor potato becomes a Premium Gin.
