Snowdonia Spirit Company
“We are delighted to welcome Snowdonia Spirit Company to Discover Delicious – a craft gin distillery championing the wonderful tastes of Wales, bringing traditional flavours to the table in a very modern way.”
Our craft distillery situated on the beautiful West Wales coast is home to our copper pot still named Afanc. Legend has it that AFANC was a water monster that used to live in a river near Brynberian and another story tells of Afanc living in Llyn yr Afanc near Betws-y-Coed, both were notorious for stealing local farmers’ livestock and fair maidens in the moonlight.
Flavour innovation is the key to our success, and we are passionate about celebrating Welsh traditions as well as wonderful Welsh flavours, albeit with a modern twist. This passion is deliciously displayed in our Bara Brith Gin- a beautiful expression of the iconic Welsh Tea Loaf and a recipe that lends itself very much to a spirit version of the traditional dish with dried fruits, spices and black tea flavours.
A chance meeting with renowned landscape painter Alan Rankle lead to a collaboration that brings a visual delight to our finished labels. Alan creates incredible and dramatic landscape oil paintings, many of which adorn the walls of celebrated hotels including the Lowry in Manchester, the Grand Hotel Nurmeburg and the JR Marriott hotel group.
Alan painted a special scene for the reverse label of our Bara Brith Gin, his interpretation of the Welsh landscape is wild and evocative and brings a special and unique finish to our bottles. We hope you love it as much as we do!
"Each of our premium gin spirits are inspired by Welsh tradition and celebrate great taste with a modern twist. "
