Our original Blue Slate Gin (Jin Llechen Las, in Welsh) is a handcrafted juniper-led London Dry gin, rich with spicy pine leading to an elderflower-citrus heart and a long oak and heather-honey finish. Distilled in micro-batches in our mountainside distillery in Snowdonia, this gin is handcrafted to our own unique recipe and blended with fresh mountain water, filtered through layers of slate.

It is a beautifully balanced and seductively aromatic gin, a smooth sip over ice and refreshing mixed in a G&T. Local rhubarb delivers citrus zest and a flavour that is perfectly complemented by an orange garnish.

42% ABV.

Our Blue Slate Gin has also picked up some prestigious awards, including a Bronze award at the 2018 International Wine and Spirit Competition and winner of a Great Taste Star in 2018.

Ingredients: Juniper, Coriander Seed, Angelic root, Welsh Oak bark, Rhubarb, Raw Heather Honey, Rosemary, Bay Leaf.

“It’s no secret that we’re big fans of gin here at Discover Delicious, and are also driven by our passion to unearth the passionate Welsh producers creating some truly exceptional food and drink. Jess and Lew are the epitome of what we’re all about, lovingly producing their unique craft gin from their beautiful cottage in Snowdonia; a craft gin with a genuine sense of place. We’re thrilled to have them on board and hope you love them as much as we do.” 

Dinorwig Distillery was established by husband and wife team, Lew and Jess, from their former quarry workers cottage located beneath the slate quarry of Dinorwig, looking out towards Snowdon.

“We love exploring the mountains and slate quarries in this area, it’s is a place of amazing contrast and brutal beauty. In 2016, we set up a micro gin distillery from home, we wanted to create gin that we felt was authentic to the land and so we set the principle that we would only use botanicals that could be grown in this region. Many of the fresh botanicals we use are harvested from our mountainside garden and the water we use comes from our mountain well, filtered through layers of slate.

“We craft our gin to our own unique recipes in our mountainside distillery. Each tiny batch is started with a slow infusion of sustainably sourced botanicals in a quality neutral grain spirit. While most gin makers use either pot distillation or vapour infusion, we use a combination of the two methods working with a 50 litre still. Our process is very labour intensive with extremely limited production. We use only the very heart of the distillation run and each run produces just enough gin for 65 standard size bottles. Cut to drinking strength with our own, fresh mountain well water, our gin is then bottled, sealed and labelled on-site, by hand.
