This selection is only for the brave - it contains strong Cornish beers that are above 5% ABV. Try it if you dare! Enjoy!

  • St Austell Brewery - Hicks -  St Austell's most legendary ale, Hicks is full bodied, strong deep and complex, brimming with flavour. It is brewed with plenty of malt and English Fuggles and Golding hops. (ABV 6.0%)
  • Lizard Ales - An GofBrewed to commemorate An Gof the St Keverne Blacksmith who led the Cornish Revolt of 1497 against unfair taxes. He was Hanged, Drawn & Quartered on Tyburn hill but defiant to the end declared that he and his followers would share a 'fame permanent & immortal.' He wasn't far wrong as 523 years later his name lives on in this excellent ale. An Gof is brewed using a complex mix of malts. Maris Otter, Crystal, Chocolate and Smoked Malts plus Fuggles and Goldings hops. (ABV 5.2%)
  • Dynamite Valley - Brian - This deep red, bold, rich and classic tasting amber bitter has a nutty roasted aroma, and a bitter fruit and subtle caramel flavour. (ABV 5.0%)
  • Keltek Brewery - Beheaded -  This is extremely deceptive with a smooth, slightly sweet, flavour (ABV 7.6%)
  • Blue Anchor - Spingo Special - This magnificent beer is one of the strongest brewed in Britain today. Dark in colour and sweet in taste, this is the creme-de-la-creme of real ales. It was first brewed to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. (ABV 6.6%)
  • Dynamite Valley - SplannStrong sweet and dark but with a bitterness and a noticeable but subtle hop flavour. In the mouth caramel comes to the fore and is dominant in the aroma too. (ABV 6.3%)
  • Dowr Kammel - Bodmin Wildcat - An extra special strong Cornish bitter. Malt dominant, warming, with a good fruit body tantalising the palate. (ABV 5.7%)
  • Castle Brewery - Hung, Drawn & Slaughtered - A strong bitter with a sweetness (ABV 10%) 330ml.
  • Sharp's Brewery - Sea Fury - Filled with bold, warming flavour - Sea Fury is a rebranded version of Sharp's Special, originally brewed in 1996 and reappearing in March 2016. This sumptuous beer first tempts the drinker with inviting roasted-dark berry aromas with full malt and berry fruit on the palate and subtlely sweet hints with a moreish hop finish. (ABV 5.0%)
  • Castle Brewery - Lostwithiale - A deep red and fruity ale, classic strong bottle conditioned winter warmer (ABV 7.0%)
  • Atlantic Brewery - Fistral - A strong smooth and dry premium blonde beer. Fistral is light in colour, brewed using lager malt and quite a large proportion of wheat malt, giving it a clear crisp character. The late addition of Hallertauer Mittlefruh hops gives the herbal aroma, combining well with the citrus of First Gold. (ABV 5.2%)
  • Treen's Brewery - Resolve - Full bodied, rich, dark - everything you would expect from a traditional stout. Deep, roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee are the dominant aspects in this robust riot of flavour. (ABV 5.2%)

Great selection wasn't aware of the variety available. Thanks


Very efficient- made an excellent giftReviewed by Valerie on 16 Dec 2018

As this was a present , I can’t comment directly on the contents but I know the beers will be well received. The selection was very interesting,just what I was looking for. I was informed every stage of the gifts journey to Scotland so the carrier was impressively efficient. Will certainly be giving this way again.

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.
