In a Nutshell
Welsh distillery Pendeyrn have produced an earthy, spicy gin at a very reasonable price!
Enjoyed neat, Brecon Gin is a big traditional juniper, laced with coriander and revealing hints of spicy cinnamon. Add a mixer and the citrus freshness of oranges and lemons appear with nutmeg, liquorice and angelica in a supporting role.
The perfect serve: The characteristic flavours go well with tonic, ice and lemon on a warm summer’s day but Brecon’s traditional heritage is equally at home besides a roaring fire on a cold night and will bring back memories of long hot summers past.
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’.
