About Cornish Rock Gin

The story of how we started

The whole idea of Rock Gin was dreamed up while walking our dog, Blue, on Rock Beach, which we still do most days when not working in the distillery. We named our still Bonanza Boy after our favourite racehorse and now it has produced a stable of four fabulous gins.

We made our original Rock Gin, which is a smooth dry clear gin with a great lingering taste. Then we progressed to our Pink Rock Gin which again is a very dry gin enhanced by red champagne grapes grown for us by our friends at the Pierre Gobillard champagne house in Hautvilliers. Next came our Cornish Gold Rock Gin this is a real gin drinkers tipple being very dry and peppery but still very smooth and has the addition of cubeb peppers. Then finally came our Rock Blue Angel Gin which again is a wonderful smooth very dry gin with Blue Gardenia flower and grains of paradise which seem to bring out all the other botanicals in the gin.

The range so far!
more to come!

grapefruit or orange peel with Fever Tree tonic and lots of ice. Stir and serve.


with Fever-Tree light or
Mediterranean tonic Half shot of Rock Gin, big shot of Fever-Tree Light, topped up with pink Champagne.

Classic Gold Rock

Ice and a slice of lemon, with either Fever Tree Light for a refreshing taste or Fever Tree ginger ale for a warm spicy cocktail or even Fever Tree aromatic for a really unique flavour.

Dry Rock Goldtini

1/3rd Extra Dry Vermouth, 2/3rd Cornish Gold Rock Gin. Serve either shaken with ice or just stirred. Add an olive or a twist of lemon peel

Pink Rock Classic

A shot of Pink Rock Gin, lots of ice, Raspberries and a sprig of mint, with Fever-Tree Soda Water

Double Pink Champ Rock Ginster

Half shot of Pink Rock Gin, big shot of Fever-Tree Light, topped up with pink Champagne

Classic Blue Angel

In a coppa glass put ice and a few blueberries, then pour in Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic and splash a shot of Rock Blue Angel Gin over the contents to enjoy the perfect cocktail.

Dry Rock Bluetini

This makes a really decadent and fantastic drink-in a martini glass (preferably chilled in the fridge) put a couple of blueberries on a cocktail stick and place in glass then half fill with vermouth then top with Blue Angel Gin and give a light stir with the blueberry stick-keep both the vermouth and gin in the fridge as adding ice to this spoils the flavour. Sit back and savour.
