Much like the rest of the UK, Wales has witnessed its own gin boom in the last few years and now boasts a lively gin scene with distinctive, award-winning spirits that showcase everything from gins made with hyper-local botanicals to coastal creations. We’re incredibly proud to support our wonderfully talented Welsh distillers and we love to share our latest discoveries with you, all showcased in our lovingly curated craft gin selection.
Discover Dyfi Distillery
One of our favourite places to visit is Dyfi Distilery and we’re so pleased that the Cameron family are back welcoming visitors once again! Brothers Pete and Danny are an absolute joy to learn from when it comes to all things gin.
Using botanicals that are foraged locally from within the beautiful Dyfi biosphere, they have created some seriously special gins that perfectly reflect the region in which they are made. And, they have some pretty tasty awards to back them up.
Pre-lockdown (remember that?!) we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of the master foragers in action, as well as a close up of one of the most beautiful stills we’ve ever seen.
We also got a few hints from Danny about how he likes to pair his gins. Here’s what he told us:
- Dyfi Original – goes well with bruised basil leaves and ice OR a twist of lemon peel and a sprig of garden mint with lots of ice
- Pollination – drink it as it comes OR try a Dyfi Martini, using a herbal vermouth, a twist of lemon or lime and garnish with a green olive
- Hibernation – garnish with blackberry OR delicious as a Negroni
- Navigation – pairs well with lime and juniper berries
We’ve carefully curated the finest selection of Welsh craft gin gifts; from craft gin kits to non-alcoholic gins, award-winning gins to Bara Brith flavoured gin. There’s something for everyone in this collection, all lovingly crafted by talented Welsh distillers. The perfect gifts for a gin lover (or, of course, yourself!)
