The Piddle Experience

Piddle Experience

Bringing together and showcasing Dorset ‘Sea’ Food & Drink, our new feature, including infusing and matching beer with seafood - is on Custom House Quay. 

Sit down on the quayside or take away from two fantastic seafood menus brought to you by La Fosse at Cranborne and Man Street Kitchen. Wet your whistle at our very own Piddle Bar or our new ‘Sirens’ Cocktail Bar’ serving Dorset Pommes, Weymouth Sea Breeze,  Conker & Tonic and more... it’s unique… it’s fun…  and it’s all crafted in Dorset… what else would you expect from Piddle?

Conker Gin – That’s the Spirit

Conker Spirit is Dorset’s first gin distillery. Nestled in the sandy backstreets of Bournemouth, Conker Spirit quietly distils its award-winning Dorset Dry Gin in tiny 60-bottle batches.  

The Dorset Dry is a classic gin that is true to juniper, with the subtle incorporation of the Dorset notes of marsh samphire, elderberries and hand-picked New Forest gorse, bringing bright and refreshing lighter notes to Conker.

Liberty Fields

Grown in our Dorset orchards, Porter’s Perfection is a deep red heritage apple remarkable for its taste and curiously-fused fruits. We also use local spring water, wheat grain and botanicals. Porter’s Perfection Vodka captures the essence of this remarkable fruit, and is handmade in small batches. It has a subtle apple colour and taste, and with a slightly peppery finish, our vodka can be enjoyed neat or mixed into a cocktail.

The Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival raises funds for the Fishermen's Mission - the vital port of call for fishermen and their families.
