POPTI Cornish bakehouse was launched in February 2015, producing the award-winning range of POPTI Savoury Thins; a perfect complement to the charcuterie, as well as being delicious snacks in their own right. Years of food experience, bakery skills and passion was complemented by financial and mentoring support from the founders of Norton Barton, Richard and Fionagh Harding, which allowed the creative talents of Ali Beech to shine through.
Artisan savoury biscuits
The biscuits are made in small batches with the kind  of ingredients you’d find in your kitchen at home, rich butter, wheat flour and seasonings. There are no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives added, but the secret recipe results in crisp biscuits which last! Proud of its Cornish roots (“Popti” means “Bakery in Cornish!) they aim to use as many local ingredients as possible including fine flake Cornish Sea Salt and Cornish Seaweed’s dulse.

The Cornish Distilling Co.

The Cornish Distilling Co


The Cornish Distilling Co. led by Head Distiller Tom Read is looking to become the county’s first rum distiller, creating Cornish rum from scratch. The imminent release of Kalkar, a Cornish distilled rum, that has been expertly blended with single origin cold brew coffee, heralds the first of The Cornish Distilling Co.’s line of rums.

Three star Great taste award for the Cornish distilling co.

Having recently been awarded three gold stars by the Guild of Fine Foods, Kalkar received sterling feedback from the judges...

"Genuine, aromatic, complex, cold brew coffee flavour, masterfully made into a liqueur. It has no bitterness, lots of character and raises the bar on coffee liqueurs."

"A real grown up indulgence, step aside Espresso Martini."
