One of our great friends in the business has recently started making this fantastic Gin with his brother. The Gin is made on a very micro-scale with huge human effort going into every bottle. Almost all of the 29 botanicals that give the unique flavour to this epic Gin, grow wild in the idyllic and beautiful Dyfi valley and are foraged specially to meet the needs of every batch. This is unique in that it is not only a totally 'terroir' driven project but it also follows the seasons. There will be two incarnations, the 'Pollination Gin' put together based on the available plants growing in the valley leading up to the summer - and the Hibernation Gin which will be harvested in the later summer and then will 'over-winter' in a used White Port barrel. This really is fantastic, An overwhelming taste sensation, complex, floral and beautifully herbaceous. This immediately transported to me to that verdant, Eden-like valley in Wales - quite literally spotting the 29 different plants that provide the flavour botanicals that go into the blend. There is a wonderful soft feel to it too. This is the most remarkably balanced, real, hand-crafted Gin. Any lovers of fine spirits should not hesitate to try this - it really is a cut above. L&S
Our passion is to produce an exceptional gin of world-class quality, which could come from nowhere else. The Dyfi is recognised by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, and provides us with an enviable and unique flora spectrum to draw upon, as well as a meticulous selection the finest classic gin botanicals. Pollination gin is produced by the highest standard London Dry method, in extremely limited small batches, using pure grain spirit and locally drawn spring water. Our foraged botanicals come from within the Biosphere: from the Snowdonia foothills, through the Dyfi Forest, and down to the estuary marshlands. On a canvas of carefully selected classic gin botanicals, we 'paint' the flavours only Dyfi can combine, including wild flowers, aromatic leaves, fruits and conifer tips. We steep these components together in a temperature-controlled maceration, before precision-distilling in our small Colorado stills. We can’t create Pollination Gin all year round, and in order to ensure sustainability, production is necessarily very limited. Each bottle is hand signed and lot-numbered.Winemaker's notes
The Dyfi river is the only UNESCO World Biosphere in Wales and here, in the old slate mining village of Corris Pete Cameron and Danny Cameron founded the very small scale Dyfi Distillery. All their gins are made from wildly sourced botanicals from the local area.
