I confirm that I:
Nestled beneath the slate quarries of Dinorwig, Snowdonia, we are busy perfecting our first spirit, Blue Slate Gin, in Welsh, Jin Llechen Las. We're developing an artisan gin using only plants and botanicals that can be grown on the hillsides of Northern Wales and over the past few months, we've been perfecting our recipe so that it truly reflects the spirit of Snowdonia.
Jess and her husband & business partner, Lew, established the Dinorwig Distillery in October 2016 at their home on a windy Welsh hillside in Dinorwig (land of mountains, heather, sheep and slate!). After a mid-life career change, we decided to do something quite different in nature. We hope you love our story and our gin!
On the hillsides of Northern Wales, we founded the Dinorwig distillery at our family home. We've only been going since 2016 but have recently renovated an old building in the garden to be our dedicated distillery, and have now launched not just one but two gins, using only botanicals that grow in our garden.
As Blue Slate Gin, or Jin Llechen Las in Welsh, is only made with botanicals and plants that can be grown in the hills of Snowdonia, it has a unique flavour that is unmatched by any other craft gin. Many gins use lots of citrus fruit in their recipes but we struggle to grow Sicilian lemons in North Wales. Our gin has a unique, more earthy flavour with stronger hints of juniper and is a unique experience for any gin lover.
