ABER FALLS DISTILLERY DEBUTS WELSH DRY GIN
Less than four months after the launch of its initial collection, Aber Falls Whisky Distillery, the first of its kind in North Wales for more than 100 years, has bolstered its exceptional range of premium small-batch spirits with its latest launch – a Welsh Dry Gin.
Welsh and proud, the Aber Falls distilling team scour North Wales’ beautiful landscape for the locally-sourced botanicals that go into their outstanding liquids, and this brand new addition to the range of Gins is no exception to that rule. Made using water from the Rhaeadr Fawr – the famous Aber Falls waterfall – this copper pot distilled spirit, which takes inspiration from the traditional London Dry Gin, leads with juniper and gives grapefruit, lemon and orange prominent roles, resulting in a bright and fresh liquid with a subtly spicy and sweet finish.
The unveiling complements the brand’s current five flourishing flavours, including Rhubarb & Ginger and Orange Marmalade Gin, Salted Toffee, Violet and Coffee & Dark Chocolate Liqueurs. Aligned with the rest of the range, Aber Falls Welsh Dry Gin is also bottled at 41.3% ABV and is available at £24 per 70cl.
James Wright, Managing Director at Aber Falls Distillery, commented: “The introduction of this classic liquid marks an important milestone for us, as we extend our range of Gins, styles and flavours, and continue to achieve high-quality and consistent spirits, to satisfy growing demand. It has been an amazing start to 2018 and we’ve received remarkable feedback in the on and off-trade on a local and national level. Notable achievements include new listings across the country and being shortlisted for Best New British Product in the prestigious Great British Food Awards.
“The rise of regional gin has more than doubled in the last six months and we’re proud to be serving the spirit of North Wales to the local area and further afield.”
Aber Falls, which is set to release its first whisky in 2020, has also created a new temporary visitor centre in the lead up to a permanent fixture expected in Autumn 2018.
