Hibernation Gin

By The Dyfi Distillery

This exquisite sipping gin is believed to be the World’s first gin to be aged in a fully-seasoned White Port cask.

The wild Welsh botanicals used to create this craft gin are influenced by the later season, creating a truly unique taste sensation.

Hibernation gin was recently awarded TWO Gold Stars at the 2021 Great Taste Awards.

The botanicals we forage for Hibernation Gin are influenced by the later season, and include wild crab apples, blackberries, bilberries and lingonberries (cowberries).

We combine these with carefully selected classic, and other locally-foraged botanicals, and precision-distil with a combination of our own pure spring water and grain spirit, before resting in a rare White Port cask.

We believe this is the world's first gin to be aged in a fully-seasoned White Port barrel, and we are indebted to our friends at Niepoort Vinhos for providing this to us.

Each bottle is hand signed and lot numbered, recognising extremely limited production.

Hibernation Gin is an exquisite sipping gin, optionally chilled, or as a martini, and also makes a delicious negroni. Our most pleasant discovery is what an excellent Gin & Tonic it makes, but given that White Port & Tonic is such a fine combination, perhaps we should not be surprised.

50 cl bottle

Bottled at 45% volume without chill-filtration.

“Brothers Pete and Danny are the masters behind this new and exciting craft gin company from Mid Wales. Using botanicals that are foraged locally from within the Dyfi biosphere, they have created some special gins at their little distillery in Corris. Their gins beautifully reflect the region from which they are born, and have some seriously tasty awards to back them up.”

We established the Dyfi Distillery in 2016 to create a range of artisan gins with a genuine sense of place. Since beginning, Pollination Gin has won the Best UK Gin trophy at the Great British Food Awards (2017), Hibernation Gin was named Best New Gin by The Independent (2017), while our Dyfi Original Gin was listed as the only craft gin in The Week’s Six of the Best Gins you could buy (also in 2017).
