We believe our Cave-Aged gin is the first such product on the market, expanding the developing cask-aged gin category and bringing added depth and dimension to the finished product.
Cascave Gin explores the secret journey our Welsh waters take, spilling down the wild hills of the Brecon Beacons, taking in native botanicals and carving through the darkest crevices of Wales, her caves, tunnels, and mines. Cascave delves into the stories of these mysterious places captured within the minerality of the water, and air exchanged through oak casks, shining a light on the beauty to be found deep within Wales.
Cascave’s portfolio currently includes two gins: our Premium Dry Gin and our Cave-Aged Gin.
Cascave Premium Dry Gin is distilled using the London Dry method, cut back with water collected from a source deep within the iconic Dan Yr Ogof Caves themselves.
Cascave Cave Aged Gin is a matured gin: our Premium Dry Gin is, rested within port casks for 180 days in the heart of the Dan Yr Ogof Caves. It too is cut back with water collected from the caves. Cask-aging the gin within these cool depths allows the liquid to absorb more of the unique historical and geographical characteristics of the caves.
Cutting back the aged liquid with water from the caves adds another dimension and authenticity to the story. Our botanicals, selected from the hills of the Brecon Beacons, the landscape which originally inspired Cascave, have been chosen to complement the minerality of the water – the same water that has made its way through the landscape to collect underground. Our distillers have built a taste profile that encapsulates and combines both – to stunning effect.
Cascave Gin is run by a mother and two daughters, a family business to its core. The venture was born over a G&T (naturally!) with the family passionately wanting to bring their vision to life, telling the story of the Brecon Beacons through gin. Their shared admiration and fondness for the Brecon Beacons meant they were not short of inspiration when dreaming up this business.
The family’s ambition is to harness the magnificent natural landscape in a bottle of their gin, to create an authentic tasting experience that encapsulated the characteristics of their beloved landscape and mineral-rich waters.
Our gin is the first of its kind and tells the story of a journey through the Brecon Beacons, retold in a Welsh craft gin.
