It’s time to unveil the next featured spirit in our Gin of the Week series!
This week, we’re taking a trip to Wales to discover the magic of Aber Falls Gin…
THE STORY OF ABER FALLS GIN
Situated in the heart of North Wales in Abergwyngregyn, Aber Falls Distillery is the first whisky distillery to open in the area since the early 1900s.
Translated from Welsh, Abergwyngregyn means ‘mouth of the river of the white shells’. Fittingly as the distillery is located at the foot of ‘Rhaeadr Fawr’, known as the Aber Falls waterfall, from which it takes its name.
With Aber Falls highly anticipated whisky set to launch in 2020, the brand opted to release premium Welsh gins and liqueurs in the lead-up to the whisky release, with the current range encompassing four gins and three liqueurs.
Our recommendation is their Welsh Dry Gin, which uses Welsh-inspired botanicals to give an authentic Welsh taste to each of their bottles.
Based on a traditional London Dry gin recipe, with a juniper-led flavour, Aber Falls add a Welsh touch with water sourced from the famous Aber Falls to create a unique tasting gin with a citrus edge and a spicy, yet sweet, kick.
