In a Nutshell
Welsh distillery Pendeyrn have produced an earthy, spicy gin.
Brecon gin is a big traditional juniper gin laced with coriander and revealing hints of spicy cinnamon. Add a mixer and the citrus freshness of oranges and lemons appear with a dash of nutmeg, liquorice and angelica. Delicious on a hot summer's day.
A fine quality distilled gin using botanicals from the four corners of the world and bottled at Penderyn Distillery using water from the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.
Distilling in Wales was a lost art, but in the late 1990s, in a pub in a small post-industrial Welsh valley town, a group of friends drank and chatted about establishing the first whisky distillery in Wales in over a century. They dreamt of creating a whisky as pure and precious as Welsh gold, represented today by Penderyn’s ‘gold seam’.
