Best Welsh gins to try

Brecon Botanicals Gin, £23.95, The Whisky Exchange

Distilled with water from the Brecon Beacons National Park, this gin has notes of wildflowers with fresh citrus, balanced with warming spices including cinnamon and cloves. It’s got plenty of body so would stand up well in a G&T with a wedge of orange.

Dà Mhìle Seaweed Gin, £29.80, Master of Malt

As well as its subtle green colour, hand-foraged seaweed adds a salty, funky edge to this off-beat gin. It’s super smooth and fresh, with notes of mint that tingle on the tongue. The gin’s full-bodied nature means it would hold its own in a dirty martini, served with oysters for an extra briny hit.

Wye Valley Gin, £40, Discover Delicious

Inspired by the sylvan surrounds of the Wye Valley, this gin from Silver Circle Distillery is made using locally foraged botanicals such as blackberry leaf, scots pine, sweet woodruff and linden flowers. There’s an earthily herbaceous character to the spirit, with an aromatic leafiness that would make it perfect for autumnal cocktails. Try in a negroni with Cynar.

Pollination Gin, £39.95, Discover Delicious

Featuring a complex blend of 29 different botanicals from the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere, this award-winning gin has a headily herbaceous, floral profile – think wildflower meadow on a summer’s day. Use in a gimlet.

Aber Falls Small Batch Welsh Gin, £31.85, Amazon

Piney juniper and lavender are surprise best pals in this subtly floral number, with peppery notes adding to its complexity. One for those who prefer sweeter gins, try with tonic and a slice of cucumber.
