Cornwall’s Colwith Farm Distillery has unveiled a new name and a new look for its field-to-bottle gin.
Its dry gin has been rebranded as Aval Dor Gin and has undergone a packaging overhaul to bring it in line with the distillery’s award-winning potato-based Aval Dor Vodka, which is used as the gin’s base spirit.
The gin was formerly sold as Stafford’s Dry Gin, named for distillery owner Steve Dustow’s great-grandfather Stafford, who bought the land near Fowey in Cornwall where the family still farms more than 100 years later.
With its name meaning ‘potato’ in Cornish, the Aval Dor range aims to celebrate the agricultural heritage of the area in which the Colwith Farm Distillery creates its spirits.
Announcing the rebrand, Steve Dustow said: “All gin is botanically flavoured vodka, therefore it was a natural progression to name our gin after our attention-grabbing Aval Dor Vodka. The new name and branding offer a very clear nod to our farming roots and plough-to-bottle ethos, bringing our premium gin in line with our world-class potato vodka.”
Aval Dor Gin comes in a frosted bottle featuring the Cornish crest, and Aval Dor Vodka will also get a revamp to mirror the new look. This will be rolled out across all lines in the Colwith Farm Distillery family, which includes vanilla vodka, rhubarb and ginger gin and the latest addition, seaberry vodka made with berries from Cornwall’s first sea buck plantation.
