We think

All the botanicals in Dinorwig's Blue Slate Gin are grown on a windy Welsh hillside. With no citrus flavours (lemons are famously difficult to grow in Snowdonia), it has a unique woody flavour.

Tasting notes










Blue Slate gin, produced by the Dinorwig Distillery in North Wales, is made using water straight from the hills and distilled only with botanicals and plants that can be grown in the hills of Snowdonia. Jess and Lew set up the distillery in late 2016 at their home, and created their first of many gins to come. Using a still in a shed in their garden, Blue Slate gin is truly small-batch with only a handful of bottles being distilled at a time.

Drawing inspiration from the garden that Jess' mum has tended to for the past 15 years and from the local area's plants, sales from Blue Slate gin will contribute to the work of Plantlife in juniper conversation, which is in decline across the UK.

The distillery


Snowdonia, Wales

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.

The people

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!

The products

Our products are inspired by the landscape and culture past and present of the area. The aim is to make gin in the first instance focusing on local grown botanicals and supporting causes related to gin botanicals and conservation. Sales from our first gin, Blue Slate Gin, Jin Llechen Las in Welsh, will make a contribution to the work of Plantlife in juniper conservation and regeneration in the UK. We launched our signature gin, the Blue Slate Gin (Jin Llechen Las), in 2017, and have now launched our first seasonal gin (Jin Tymhorol), which is distilled with heather honey, purple sage and lavender leaf
