d e r u s TreaFOR A LIFETIME Canary Blue provides a bespoke jewellery experience tailored to you.
anary Blue is an entirely different style of jewellers. You don't have to stand out in the cold trying to choose your perfect ring through the window, and once inside you can browse the cabinets at your leisure, or sit down for a chat with one of their friendly designers to discuss exactly what you want from your piece of jewellery. The store in Truro was opened by Richard with the aim to ma e ﬁne e e er approachab e for everyone, with each piece being tailored to the customer's design or budget to create jewellery that can be treasured for a lifetime. With combined experience of over 50 years, Richard, Laura and Darren fuse traditional techniques with cutting edge equipment. They can create or re-model your favourite piece of jewellery in the workshop above the store, be that a brand-new design or a treasured family heirloom. If you’re looking for the perfect gift or a unique engagement ring, Canary Blue has a virtually limitless choice of designs. Simply relax amongst the comfortable furnishings and choose your perfect stone from a selection of loose diamonds and gemstones sourced from around the world. Your chosen gem will then be carefully set into your new piece of jewellery to create something truly individual.
Canary Blue also hand-makes wedding bands here in Cornwall, using Fairtrade and Fairmined Gold from small-scale artisanal miners around the world. Rings can also be made using customers’ own gold, by melting and re-forging to create a new ring with special sentimental value. They’re open from Tuesday to Saturday, with appointments available until 6pm to make life easier. So, make sure to visit them for a chat and a mince pie and discover how buying jewellery should be.

Fowey Valley products begin their life in a converted barn on a farm in Golant on the banks of the river Fowey. Everything is made from fruit grown within a few miles.
GIN & VODKA Foy Gin is a classic, velvety, aromatic gin. Juniper-led with floral notes and with a just a hint of fragrant spice. Fowey Valley Vodka is like silk, with a hint of vanilla, caramel and fennel. Think Vodka tonic, think Martini, or for sipping, simply serve ice-cold from the fridge in a chilled glass. A superbly smooth vodka.
CIDER BRANDIES The Eau de Vie is laid down in new American oak barrels and left to mature. The beautiful golden colour develops with age as does the delicate flavour. One year and two year Cider Brandies are available in limited quantities.
EAU DE VIE & POMMEAU Our Eau de Vie is distilled from our vintage cider and has hints of cherry, apricot and chocolate. Pommeau is a blend of fresh apple juice and Eau de vie. Serve chilled as a delightfully fresh and appley aperitif, Mix with soda water and ice for a long drink. Or serve with chocolate or apple-based deserts. CIDERS Our sparkling vintage cider apples are just pressed, then fermented twice: first in the barrel for a year; then a second year’s fermentation in the bottle. It is disgorged in the champagne style. Castledore medium-dry cider is named after the iron age fort near our orchard. It is a wonderfully refreshing, lightly carbonated cider, very clean on the palate, well balanced and a beautiful golden colour.
A5 1.00 Template.indd 1
VINEGAR & OLIVE OIL Our cider vinegar is made from our Vintage Cider. Aged for three years before bottling, it is unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no preservatives added. Healthy vinegar! Our Nocellara del Belice olives are grown in the Belice Valley in Sicily. The Extra virgin Olive oil has aromas of citrus fruits and pepper. It is lightly spicy, extraordinarily fruity, silky and light with notes of artichokes, green apple, tomatoes and delicate young green almond.
