Word came to me today that next year we might be seeing the release of a Cornish Whisky.
Not a lot of information floating around about is but we did carry an interview back in WM44 with former operations manager of the Cornish Cyder Farm Steve Cadwallader and head brewer at St Austell Brewery Roger Ryman, who were distilling at the Cornish Cyder Farm at Penhallow, near Newquay.
Roger was quoted in the article as having spoken to people in the industry in Scotland and had been given clear advice not to release their product too soon. He added at the time they might be looking at an eight year maturation.
This was in 2002. Could it be…….?
