7th March 2024

Rose 17 Sparkling Wine Cocktail

Introducing a young distillery filled with Cornish spirit, with a mesmerizing pink colour, which will serve as one of the main ingredients for their Rose 17 Sparkling Wine Cocktail which we’ll be recreating a little further down.

Padstow Gin

Padstow Distilling was created and is run by wine merchant David McWilliam, since launching in 2018, Padstow Distilling now has a HQ and bar at 17 Duke Street in Padstow which has become a hub for those seeking a unique and authentic taste of Cornwall.

The botanical recipe combines tradition with the beauty of its location, blending juniper, citrus, and pepper with local Alexanders, an ancient coastal plant foraged from the cliffs above the same beach on the western side of the estuary.

For those seeking an immersive experience, Padstow Distilling welcomes visitors to its shop and bar at 17 Duke Street in the heart of Padstow, while from here, David and his team run guided walks along the estuary to take in the sights, sounds and scents of this special place – the inspiration for this range of Padstow’s spirits.

  • Padstow Gin Navy – 70cl, £60.00
  • Padstow Gin Original – 70cl, £48.00
  • Padstow Gin Rose – 70cl, £48,00

All their spirits are crafted from locally sourced ingredients that grow along the coastline of North Cornwall.

Rose 17 – The Sparkling Wine Cocktail

The ‘Rose 17’ is one of the most popular cocktails at 17 Duke Street bar with its delicate floral notes alongside the excitement of fizz. The Simonsig Satin Nectar Rosé is a perfectly balanced, rich and fruity demi-sec; elegant and refreshing. This is complemented by Padstow Rose Gin with its delicate spice of pink peppercorns and the decadent scent of roses, not sweet but smooth and subtle.

Before you start crafting your Rose 17 Cocktail, make sure you freeze your Padstow Rose Gin overnight.


  • 25ml Padstow Rose Gin
  • 125ml Simonsig Satin Nectar Rosé or Rosé Sparkling Wine
  • 1 Fresh Strawberry
  • Caster Sugar


  • Sprinkle 1mm depth of caster sugar evenly over a side plate.
  • Take a small slice of lemon and moisten the rim of a Champagne flute.
  • Dip the upended glass in the sugar and shake off the excess before placing upright again.
  • Add the Rose Gin and then top up with the Satin Nectar Rosé.
  • Cut a nick in the strawberry vertically and dress it on the rim of the glass.
