The visitor centre will open on the historic site of Treguddick Manor in Launceston, offering a first-hand look at the distillery’s production.

Plans for the site include a duo café-bar, a retail store and an event space, with a focus on local produce, retailers and partners.

Founded in 2011 by master distiller Dr John Walters, English Spirit produces its 18-strong range in a 200-year-old barn in the Essex countryside. St Piran’s Rum is made entirely in the UK and is blended with Cornish water from Treguddick Manor.

“We are planning to create a remarkable destination for visitors both from within Cornwall and further afield, on a beautiful site that does justice to our delicious range of spirits,” said Walters.

The English Spirit Distillery Visitor Centre is expected to open in spring 2020. Further details will be revealed in due course.

In February this year, English Spirit refreshed the packaging for its portfolio, which includes St Piran’s Rum, Apple Brandy and English Sambuca.
