GOWER GIN DISTILLERY

Our micro distillery is in a converted bike shed in the village of Port Eynon on Gower.  We have an absolute passion for gin and are constantly developing new recipes based on the botanicals found on Gower. Our aim is to make small batch craft gin which encapsulates the freshness of the sea and the aromas of the coast and dunes that surround us. We want to be a strong ambassador for Gower and Wales which is why we use Welsh names for our gins and have fully bilingual bottles.

 

We love welcoming visitors and we run Open Days where you can come and taste our gins in our gin garden (weather permitting). Please message us to book a time to visit.  Thank you!

OUR GIN

GŴYR, 43% Alc/Vol

Our classic GŴYR original gin is made with foraged green and bronze fennel from local beaches blended with fresh zest of lemon and pink grapefruit for an aromatic and zesty London Dry.

Serve with pared orange or a thin slice of pink grapefruit.

 

Our flagship gin has been awarded The Gin Guide's Best in Wales 2019, a San Francisco Bronze, London Spirits Competition Silver 2018 and a Great Taste award. 

PINWYDD, 43% Alc/Vol

GŴYR Pinwydd is a classic juniper forward London Dry with aromatic pine tips & pink peppercorns blending with fresh orange zest and cranberry.

The taste is fruity and intense and it is perfect served over ice with fresh cranberries and a twist of orange zest. It makes a wicked Negroni too!

 

Pinwydd won a Bronze medal in the London Spirits Competition 2019.

RHOSILI, 45% Alc/Vol

GŴYR Rhosili is made in conjunction with the Dylan Thomas Estate to commemorate his strong links with Gower. This fresh gin 'sings of the sea' with sea buckthorn, lime, gorse and linden flower. Cut at 45% for a creamy finish we suggest it is served with a slice of lime or a sprig of rosemary.

 

We were delighted that GŴYR Rhosili won a Gold Award in the World Gin Awards 2020.

BARA BRITH, 43% Alc/Vol

GŴYR Bara-Brith is a delicious warming new gin based on Grandma's recipe with tea-soaked vine fruit, citrus & spice. Bara Brith is inspired by the famous Welsh ‘speckled bread’ and is warming and spicy; serve with zest of orange and a cinnamon stick. It makes a fantastic Martinez cocktail.

 

Bara Brith has won a Bronze medal in the London Spirits Competition 2020.

RHAMANTA, 43% Alc/Vol

It was a huge priviledge that our Rhamanta gin was selected be Craft Gin Club Gin of the Month for February 2020. 'Rhamanta' was the ancient Welsh tradition of finding your true love and this gin celebrates love and friendship with rose and pomegranate. 

 

Rhamanta has won a Silver medal in the London Spirits Competition 2020.

NERTH Y DDRAIG / DRAGON STRENGTH, 60% Alc/Vol

The fire and smoke of a dragon’s breath along with the majesty of Worm’s Head in Rhossili were the inspiration for this 60% Dragon’s Strength gin.

 

The recipe is based on ‘Rhosili’ gin with the added fire and smoke of dragons from cubeb pepper, grains of paradise and lapsang souchong tea.

OUR STILL

Our still is a 200L pot still which lets us make up to 300 bottles of gin at a time.  We use a long slow maceration process to fully extract all the botanical flavours before distillation resulting in intensely flavoured spirits.  We love to innovate with our gins and have developed our own processes for flavour development, oak-mellowing and post distillation infusions which have allowed us to create unique flavours for ourselves and for our bespoke clients.  Distilling by the sea has its own special magic and if you are ever in the area please do call in and say hello.

Our Collaborations

The Goodwash Company

Scented with juniper, pink grapefruit and fennel, this luxury soy candle also does good by supporting local charities.  We are so grateful to The Goodwash Company for their help in creating this little beauty.  

Gower Fudge

We have trouble keeping this delicious artisan fudge in stock as we keep eating it!  Made with our gin and white chocolate - it's absolutely delicious!

We just love this shop in Narberth, which stocks an amazing array of gins and award-winning sorbets.  We were so pleased that Ivan agreed to produce a delicious sorbet with our gin.
