Camel Valley (15 miles) 
When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first eight thousand vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within 2 decades. They had bought their farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside several years earlier, seeking a change from service life and the perfect place to bring up their young family, and initially farmed sheep and cattle.
As the years passed, Camel Valley wines have been consistently winning medals at both national and international level. In 2002 Bob and Annie won the Waitrose Drinks Producer of the Year Award, and the following year the South West Business Challenge award for Creating Wealth in the Rural Community. Bob continued as Winemaker, but now had a small team of full time staff to help in the vineyard and a new state of the art winery, and had started making Cornwall's first Traditional Method sparkling wine as well as still wines. His finest moment came in 2005 with an International Wine Challenge Gold Medal for Camel Valley 'Cornwall' sparkling wine. At THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay, we are looking forward to serving Camel Valley, but until then you can buy online here

Tarquin's Gin (16 miles) 
In 2012 Tarquin Leadbetter set his sights on establishing the first Cornish distillery for over 100 years. He had never distilled anything before in his life and so his first task is to begin self-teaching! Over 100 different trial gin batches were developed. But then he hit upon the winner! From his bounty of botanicals, 12 are finally selected – a concoction of roots, spices, nuts, seeds, fruits and flowers sourced from the far corners of the world as well as from his back garden. On 30th July 2013, the first bottle was sold to the Gurnard Head Hotel in St. Ives, Cornwall.
After winning a string of international awards in his first year Tarquin added  the most prized feather to his already fairly illustrious cap. The third addition to the permanent range, the brilliantly bold Tarquin’s “The SeaDog’ Navy Strength Gin, clocking in at a punchy 57% abv, is crowned the “World’s Best Gin” at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition from a contesting using age pool of over 260 individual gins. A fairly remarkable achievement for a self-taught distiller, using old techniques in a converted cow shed perched on a windswept hilltop overlooking the wild Cornish Coast! 
We can't wait to serve Tarquin's world-class gin at THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay, but meanwhile why not try it for yourself. You can buy it online here.
