Fashioned after the craft distilleries that are becoming so prevalent in America, Penrock Distillery offers a little taste of the USA right here in Cornwall.

From Tennessee to Cornwall

Drawing on head distiller Sim Daley’s twenty one year tenure living in Tennessee, we offer craft spirits made in the American tradition, but  with a distinct Cornish twist.  As we are not bound by the traditions of our American or Scottish counterparts, we are free to craft our spirits in a way uniquely “Penrock”.  Uniquely Cornish.

Our fantastic beverages

Although our focus is primarily on our ground breaking Penrock “Sour Mash” Cornish (bourbon) whiskey, we are working towards bringing you our take on traditional Single Malt whiskey.

But we should also remember our unadulterated “white” unaged Sour Mash “Platinum” (whiskey), something more akin to the mountains of Tennessee than the coast of Cornwall, but none the less, uniquely Penrock.

All fermented and distilled in our craft distillery, we have our hand in every step in the process. From selecting the grains to cooking and fermenting the “mash”, double distilling the spirits and making the cuts, no effort is spared to bring you the finest whiskeys we can conceivably craft.

And while we wait for our whiskeys to age, we offer our line of Penrock Cornish rums, fermented and distilled from the finest blackstrap molasses by us, right here in South East Cornwall. Not only will we offer silver, spiced and Gold rum, we will be laying down casks that will eventually become our matured Cornish Navy rum. However, we should not forget our ever popular “Resurrection” coffee rum liquor created using coffee roasted right next door at Lars & Margo from the finest coffee beans.
