Curious by nature and Curio by name

Curious by nature and Curio by name, the genre-redefining range from Cornwall includes age-old ingredients such as rock samphire and cardamom to create tipples that are curiously attractive and flavoursome with every sip. Curio introduces small-batch spirits, including craft gin, that are adventurous and selectively seducing. We dare you to be curious and try out our gin and vodka flavours.

We are husband and wife, William and Rubina Tyler-Street who became curious about setting up a bespoke spirits brand in 2012, and celebrated seeing our first products take to the optics in December 2014. We invested in two small stills, a rotary evaporator and lots of time and experimentation with the idea of creating a range of spirituous beverages to keep on satisfying our adventurous nature and that of the consumer.

Curio Rock Samphire Gin (now Wild Coast Gin) came first, then the Peruvian Cocoa Nib Vodka and now Cardamom vodka. We’re in competition with each other, I watch the gin and William oversees the vodka – it’s all healthy fun and we’re very much a team. We only use pure natural spring water from the Cornish Spring Water Company for our distillations and we work with local suppliers whenever possible. Excellent quality is what we strive for because you deserve the best.

“We are both delighted to support the Cornwall Christmas Fair, it’s such a brilliant event, full of sparkle with hand made gifts from some of the best producers in the region. And having had close relatives and friends in need of the vital services provided by Macmillan, this is close to our hearts and we are more than happy to help raise funds and awareness.”
