My Magical Journey So far....

My passion for Gin began whilst I was serving in the Royal Navy, and funnily enough ‘grew legs' during the Royal wedding of the Duke of Sussex to his wife the Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan. (Now known as Harry and Meghan)

I founded Mother's Ruin 1751 back in 2017 because I actually had my eyes set to create my own gin, but financially I believed introducing my Gin Flights and gaining the knowledge and experience of the local gin world, would give me a better understanding of what type of Gin I would like to create.

After an upsetting sudden change in location and the big move to Enterprise Court Torpoint. I spent many hours working hard to get my business afloat, attending 100's of shows, gin festivals, running small bars and planning a very successful event "Gins & Fins”(where I met a lot of fantastic people and supporters). I still couldn't get making and creating my own gin out of my head! But who new that a major Pandemic was only around the corner.

My Gin

A Blue Flamingo is rare, beautiful and quite mythical. My gin will contain unusual and scarce botanicals. Some of these botanicals found growing in my own garden, black Bee honey produced on Rame peninsula and the amazing special berry from Brazil. 

Blue Flamingo is a very meaningful name to me, with dreams as a child of hot sunny days basking in cool waters and wondering why I felt differently to my piers. Which in turn is why I simply chose to call it 'Blue Flamingo', as most flamingos are pink, and rarely are they blue or so the legend says!

I am creating my gin with the help of the very talented Colwith Farm Distillery based in Fowey, they are helping me marry botanicals so that Gin lovers can drink over and over again. Blue Flamingo will be the result of many hours spent mixing flavours, creating design ideas and working closely with family and friends. However with your help and support we can make this dream a reality. 

COVID-19 won't stop us and neither will it ruin our dreams of joining this fantastic industry.

Over the past three years I have had a lot of support from other members of the gin industry within Cornwall, luckily, because I have been selling their gin for a number of years. Due to this, I have made some amazing friends along this journey, and long may our friendships last.

Cornwall

It is very important to me to have my Gin established and made in Cornwall. Joining the Navy in 2002 I entered Cornwall Division, later on I joined HMS Cornwall, and now I have settled in Cornwall. Having met many of the Cornish distillers I have no doubt that Cornwall produces the best Gin's in the Country.

The finest local produce and the most fresh spring water have created the current ‘West Country trend’, and, after meeting with the owner Steve at Colwith Farm Distillery! Not only do they have a very close family bond, but also a historical industry going back to 1904. Steve has helped from day one working with him at small craft shows all the way up to our highly successful Gin festival "Gin's & Fin's".

Our secret Gin recipe still requires tweaking, and once we have finalised the recipe, this is where you will come in. With the help of Jordan the master distiller, Steve  and his team, we will get this correct blend of botanicals perfected. Steve will be using their 200L Copper Pot Stills and each run will produce around 250-280 bottles, so therefore I will be assisting throughout the entire process, all the way down to boxing them up! So you really know that it is handcrafted!

Created by Local people, to enjoy a local gin. Produced and crafted for you, Please kindly donate if you wish to do so.
