Our family business, Cornish Cream was founded in 1968 and originates from Newquay, Cornwall. Our company is built on a passionate foundation of quality and service and we have become famous for creating some of the finest Cornish products to date.
We began our journey by developing a range of exclusive products for our first shop in Newquay specialising in all things Cornish related with a focus on the finest food and drink available in the region. We became known for our exclusive range of Cornish Hampers, Cornish Gifts, Cornish Cream Chocolate Truffles and not forgetting, our luxury Cornish Ice Cream. Stretching across a number of categories within the food and drink arena, we also created a range of Cornish preserves with wood effect lids and forks which are marketed under our preserve brand, Copper Pan.
However, the real signature of what made us famous was our great tasting Cornish Clotted Cream and our innovative approach in the 70’s of sending Cornish Clotted Cream and Cornish Cream Teas by post within insulated travel packs.
Whilst our retail division flourished, we began to develop and service a number of new and prestigious U.K. wholesale customers. Subsequently due to our exceptional quality and innovative packaging, we began to supply international customers with our Copper Pan range of Cornish Preserves. Collaborating and supplying customers such as Harrods in London, Macy’s in New York, Globus in Switzerland, Kaefer Muenchen in Germany, RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 and even as far as Australia and Japan during the 90’s.
Constantly evolving through product and packaging development, we continued to innovate through the launch of our range of real farm scrumpys known as Haymakers, ‘cider with a punch’. The still smooth scrumpy stretches across three variants – the original Haymakers, easy to drink like alcoholic apple juice. The Haymaker’s Vintage; a darker, longer aged and therefore stronger cider and finally the popular Haymakers Scrumpy Rumpy; a cider that recreates the taste of scrumpy matured in barrels that were previously used to make rum.
We then developed and became known to a new generation as the home of Cornish Lust. Cornish Lust first hit the shelves in 2002 and is a delicious strawberry and fresh cream liqueur made with a winebase resulting in a delightful smooth texture with a hint of strawberry. Due to the success and the growing popularity of Cornish Lust, two other fresh Cream liqueurs followed. Cornish Dream, a fudge flavoured liqueur and Cornish Nevek, a chocolate flavoured liqueur.
Spurred on from the success of Cornish Lust, we launched a new and exciting product in the summer of 2011 known as Cornish Sunset. A unique sparkling bubbly made with the juice of fresh strawberries. Created for a lunch time drink in the sun or a pre dinner appetizer, Cornish Sunset became popular at any social occasion from Christmas and New Year to weddings, or simply as the label suggests, ‘best served with friends’. Cornish Sunset has become the big success story of the business to date.
Due to the growing demand of these products across the region, we formed a sister company in 2002 named Cribbar Ltd to represent these brands to our wholesale customers. If you would like further information on stocking these products please click here.
Our shops are in St Ives and Newquay and although online is the future, sometimes you can’t beat the ‘free tasters in store’. Always here to help, you will be welcomed in store any time.
