Local distillery launches seasonal events for harvest and Christmas

Cornwall’s first plough-to-bottle distillery launches a new seasonal event series, ‘Colwith

Distillery Sessions’, alongside private venue hire - offering destination dining inspired by the

countryside this autumn/winter.

Colwith Farm Distillery, in Lanlivery, is launching a new Harvest Feast-Aval Celebration

(October 28th ) and Minimal Miles Christmas Parties (25th November & 16th December), due

to increased local appetite, following a wildly popular summer events series earlier this


Designed to bring the local community together, celebrating seasonality and local produce,

the new distillery events include beautifully decorated long communal tables with hearty

and wholesome menus, honouring the best country produce.

Tickets include a two-course meal, complimentary welcome drink with canapés, and live

music - promising a whole evening of entertainment.

New Harvest Feast-Aval: October 28th , 6pm-11pm – feast and live music (£45pp)

In the spirit of Harvest, this feast night is a good old fashioned rural get together,

celebrating the best of the season, for just 50 people.

Expect long communal feast tables, rustically decorated, for a convivial dining experience

set amongst the distillery’s stills. Guests are greeted with canapés and a seasonal harvest

cocktail, featuring Colwith’s Aval Dor Vodka, on arrival, followed by a two-course meal

created by Colwith Farm Kitchen.

The menu includes Cornish beef topside, braised short rib, herb crushed vodka infused roast

potatoes, roast root vegetables, thyme, and gravy (vegan/vegetarian option also available).

Followed by mulled winter fruits, served with cinnamon ice-cream or Cornish clotted cream.

After the feast live music will be provided by the locally acclaimed, Lostwithiel based, band

Pitch Black.

New Minimal Miles Christmas Parties: 25th Nov & 16th Dec, 7pm-11pm, feast and DJ (£40pp)

Get set for a proper Cornish Christmas celebration with Colwith’s new festive dinner and

dancing party night. The two-course festive feast is a celebration of the best local producers

and seasonal suppliers, with ingredients sourced under 5 miles of the distillery – offering a

‘minimal miles’ Christmas menu, set on long, beautifully decorated communal tables in the

heart of the distillery.

A signature Colwith Christmas cocktail and canapés greet guests on arrival, before a

sensational main course of loaded Cornish roasties (0 miles), Lanlivery turkey (0.5miles),

Kittow’s pigs in blankets (2.5 miles), local veg, supplied by Richard’s Fruit & Veg (3.2 miles),

all served with homemade stuffing and gravy. Dessert is homemade Christmas pudding

created with Aval Dor Vodka (0 miles), served with Trewithen Dairy clotted cream (4.1

miles) - vegan/vegetarian options also available. Group bookings are advised to get in touch asap to avoid disappointment,

In addition, Colwith Farm Distillery is now available to hire for private events and special

occasions. The atmospheric, purpose-built distillery can host up to 200 guests set amongst

the striking copper gin and vodka stills; and smaller groups (up to 50) for seasonal cocktails

in the Tasting Bar, snug and adjoining terrace.

‘Farm to Fork’ catering is also available on site via Colwith Farm Kitchen, the distillery’s

sister company, who specialise seasonal menus using local, quality suppliers.
