Curio: Curious by nature and Curio by name, this genre-redefining range from Cornwall includes age-old ingredients such as rock samphire and cardamom to create tipples that are curiously attractive and flavoursome with every sip.
The aim is to craft small-batch spirits that are adventurous and seductive. The distillery dares you to be curious and try out their range gin and vodkas.
Curio Spirit Company was set up by husband and wife team William and Rubina Tyler-Street. They first became interested in setting up a bespoke spirits brand in 2012. Two years later they celebrated as their first products took to the optics.
The business invested in two small stills, a rotary evaporator and lots of time and experimentation with the idea of creating a range of spirituous beverages to keep on satisfying their adventurous nature and that of the consumer.
Curio Rock Samphire Gin was the first product the company launched. This was followed by Curio Cocoa Vodka which is infused with Peruvian cocoa nibs. The third product in the range is Curio Cardamom Vodka. This is re-distilled with organic cardamom seeds. The final product in the range is Curio Cornish Cup, a drink to share inspired by the traditional punch used by British Navy during the 17th century.
