A haven for those with a thirst for Cornish spirit, The Little Gin Shack continues to grow, despite the challenges posed by the current pandemic.
Since returning from lockdown and beginning, once again, to touch base with Cornwall’s most inspiring brands and businesses, it’s been truly encouraging to hear their stories and the ways in which they’ve weathered the storm of Coronavirus, and The Little Gin Shack in Wadebridge is no exception.
During the lockdown, shop owner Neil Robert, unable to keep the doors open, instead turned his attention to social media, digitally ensuring that his loyal following got their fix of ‘ginspiration’. His series of ‘Perfect Serve’ videos, for example, talked us through some of Neil’s favourite recipes, explaining step by step how to get more out of Cornwall’s finest gins. At the same time, The Little Gin Shack Club – a free digital subscription – kept subscribers in the loop with all the latest news from the world of gin, sending them exclusive offers to help keep dwindling drinks cabinets stocked.
The Little Gin Shack is a classic example of the determination that underpins so many of Cornwall’s best businesses. So it really comes as no surprise that, despite a major refit only last year, Neil and the team have now moved to a larger premises on Wadebridge’s main street, offering customers more space, inside and out, to sample their liquid offering.
In fact, up to 16 can now sit (in groups of six) and enjoy a tipple of their choosing, which is great, because with a gin collection standing at nearly 180 strong – with some fantastic new additions including gin from Porthilly Spirit (view here) and Tarquin’s – a visit to The Little Gin Shack is rarely fleeting.
