POPTI Cornish Bakehouse
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.
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."
