"No pastry, no beef, no swede?! What kind of Cornish Pasties are these?"
Southwestern Distillery's Cornish Pastis is the first pastis ever created in the UK. A traditionally French spirit made with star anise and liquorice, alongside other exotic herbs, they have given it their own spin, using Gorse flowers that the master distiller foraged himself from Cornish cliff tops and water from a local spring. The result is a richly smooth spirit with bags of citrus and aromatic flavour. Just don't expect to find it in your local bakery.
