New Cornish gin launches


Mainbrace has announced an extension to its spirits range in the form of a craft gin.

Launching on February 6 to coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Mainbrace Cornish Dry Gin is made in a traditional copper pot still, made using the London Dry style with no added sugars, sweeteners, essences, or other additives.

The gin is made with Cornish water and local botanicals, namely lemon verbena harvested from St Michaels Mount, and three different types of seaweed – Kelp, Dulse, and Sea Spaghetti – sourced from the Cornish Seaweed Company in Gweek.

Co-founder Richard Haigh said: “We are incredibly excited to be launching Mainbrace Gin, which has been a natural next step for us.

“We have lots of exciting plans in the works and are especially looking forward to ‘splicing the mainbrace’ to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.”
