The Cornish Wassail Join us at Tremough House, Penryn Campus, on 25th January 2pm for hot mulled cider and a Cornish wassail in the Orchard One of the gems of that brightens up these dark Winter evenings is the wassail, known as “warzail” in Cornish dialect and “wassel” in Kernewek. Wassail (/ ˈ w ɒ s əl /, /-eɪ l /; Old Norse "ves heil", Old English was hál, literally: be hale) is a beverage of hot mulled cider, drunk traditionally as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year.

The Wassail bowl is another favored part of Yule celebrations. A large bowl or pot was filled with wassail, a mixture of cider and spices, and warmed over the Yule fire. The meaning of the word wassail is to be `hale or hearty’, and was the reason for the many toasts and salutations made from the bowl.
