New name for Cornish gin


Colwith Farm Distillery is unveiling a new name and new look for its top selling plough to bottle gin.

Harnessing the success of its Aval Dor Vodka, recognised as one of the best in the world with a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020, the single estate distillery is introducing ‘Aval Dor Gin’.

Aval Dor Gin was previously sold as Stafford’s Dry Gin, named for owner Steve Dustow’s great, great grandfather Stafford Dustow, who bought the land near Fowey that the family still farm over 100 years later.

Dustow says leading with the Aval Dor name (Aval Dor means ‘potato’ in Cornish), is the natural evolution for the Colwith Farm Distillery stable.

“All gin is botanically flavoured vodka therefore it was a natural progression to name our gin after our attention-grabbing Aval Dor Vodka,” he said.

“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.”
