India Pale Ale, or I.P.A. as it has become known, was originally developed as a strongly hopped, slightly higher ABV pale ale for export to the colonies - India in particular. At the request of The East India Company in the late 1800s, India Pale Ale was developed by several London brewers specifically for export. The common story that early IPAs were much stronger than other beers of the time, however, is a myth.While IPAs were formulated to survive long voyages by sea better than other styles of the time.

This unique collection includes:

  • Schiller -  The SS Schiller, a German ferry on passage from New York, struck the Retarrier Ledges in thick fog and was hit by two large waves which smashed her against the rocks, damaging lifeboats and breaking the hull. She is remembered in this fantastic pale golden ale with delicate hints of spice (ABV 3.8%)
  • Frenchman's Creek - A great IPA with a sweet flavour and floral aroma (ABV 4.8%)
  • Blisland IPA - A true to type IPA packed full of golden malts. Strong in ABV and highly hopped with Chinnook, Cascade, Citra, Pacific Jade and Pacific Gem, creating fruit and berry flavours to balance the finish. (ABV 6.5%)
  • TNT -   Light amber in colour, this American hopped IPA has a floral, citrus and apple blossom aroma, peach and grapefruit dominate the palate with a crisp bitter finish from the triple hopping. (ABV 4.8%)
  • Proper Job - A hopped golden bitter with citrus and grapefruit flavours (ABV 5.5%)
  • St Ives Meor - A traditional IPA from St Ives Brewery. IPA was originally developed as a strongly hopped, slightly higher ABV pale ale for export to the colonies, India in particular.(ABV 5.0%)

Can I request a delivery date?

We can deliver your order on a date of your choice (please see above regarding weekend delivery). Please specify this when you complete your order. All requested delivery dates are desired and not guaranteed. We will do our utmost to ensure delivery on your requested day but occasionally deliveries may be delayed due to adverse weather or other conditions beyond our control for which we will not be held responsible.

Delivery to Non Mainland UK, Scottish Highlands & Islands

It takes longer to deliver to some of the Scottish Highlands, UK Islands and Northern Ireland so we can only deliver hampers containing non perishable items to these areas. This may take 2 or more working days. Delivery surcharges for the relevant postcodes are calculated at the checkout.

Fresh & Frozen Produce

Hampers containing fresh produce will only be dispatched Monday to Thursday.

We send Clotted Cream and Pasties out frozen and use an overnight courier service for delivery, so they should arrive in a chilled condition. However we advise that someone be available to receive hampers containing perishable products in order that they can be placed in a refrigerator as soon as possible. The courier will advise an estimated delivery time in advance, we will need a mobile phone number or email address to be provided. All hampers containing these products will have a notice on the outer carton to this effect. However, if for any reason the hamper has to be returned to the courier depot overnight, we are unable to guarantee the condition of these products. 

Delivery Instructions 

Signatures are no longer required upon delivery, although the recipient must acknowledge receipt unless the hamper is to be left in a designated place. 

If the package cannot be delivered, a card will be left advising the purchaser or recipient to contact the courier. In the unlikely event that the delivery is delayed due to circumstances beyond our control, Classic Cornish Hampers cannot accept responsibility. Nor can we be held responsible if incorrect delivery information is given, premises are closed when delivery is attempted and we were not informed of opening times or the recipient is out or away.

The couriers are responsible for goods in transit but if for any reason our couriers misplace a parcel, we will offer you a complete refund or replacement.

Combined Bottle & Food Orders

If you make your own hamper and it contains both bottles and food items, you may have to pay an extra delivery charge. To avoid breakages, orders over 4 bottles need to be sent with different couriers. Your chosen box (black gift box / wicker hamper) will only apply to your food items; bottles are sent in our standard cartons.

Up to 4 bottles, our standard rules apply. Between 5 - 12 bottles, an extra delivery charge will be applied, and over 12 bottles, three carriage charges will apply.

For more information, please view our full delivery policy here.

Returns Policy

You may cancel your order up to 48 hours prior to the dispatch date. This will incur a small administration charge. If you are not happy with your hamper please contact us to arrange return within 24 hours. The full value of the hamper/box will then be refunded on receipt of undamaged and/or in date goods excluding postage.

If goods are returned to us via the courier following unsuccessful attempts at delivery and where any delivery instructions have been met no refund will be made. In these circumstances the customer may request that the goods be resent. This would incur the standard delivery charge and would not cover any spoilt perishable goods. Classic Cornish Hampers will not make any administration charge for dealing with these cases.
