Penderyn Extends its Award-Winning Gin Range

Following on from the multi-award-winning success of our Brecon Special Reserve Gin and our Brecon Botanicals Gin, Penderyn are delighted to announce the forthcoming launch of three new flavoured gins – Rhubarb & Cranberry, and Rose Petal and Chocolate Orange. They can be ordered for £28 inc P&P here.

The new gins are based on our Brecon Special Reserve gin (which won Gold at the 2017 Spirits Business Global Gin Masters) and are bottled at 37.5% abv.

Laura Davies, our Distiller, who created the gins said –

‘The award-winning Brecon Gin series has been expanded using Brecon Special Reserve as a base for three new exciting flavoured expressions. These flavoured and coloured gins have been created with balance and creativity and will hopefully create more interest for our regular Brecon Gin customers, and bring new drinkers to the brand and the category.’

The bottles were designed by acclaimed drinks designer Glenn Tutssel who is also one of our directors, and the gins have been created by our all-women distilling team. Glenn said –

I have always loved botanical illustration and was very fortunate to have designed a set of stamps featuring 10 botanical illustrations for the Royal Mail, which I researched at Kew gardens and the Victoria & Albert Museum. There I discovered the artworks and notebooks of La Redoute and Ehret which inspired the new gin labels. I liked the freshness and detail of the illustration, but was also fascinated by the written notes. When I designed the labels (the flower images were created by illustrator Andrew Davidson) it seemed appropriate to include the information on the front in handwritten form rather than ‘hide’ it on the back. This also makes it more attractive to consumers.’

Tasting Notes

Rhubarb & Cranberry

A burst of tangy rhubarb blends with bittersweet cranberry to give a fresh and fruity gin. Aromas of juicy grapefruit and fresh strawberries swirl on the nose, while juniper mingles with coriander and sweet orris root in the mouth, leaving a dry lingering finish.

Best served with ice and chilled tonic water. Garnish with frozen strawberries and cucumber.

Rose Petal

Rose petal and strawberries married with tart fresh raspberries and juniper. Hints of liquorice and angelica root swirl, whilst spicy cinnamon and coriander aromas blend with refreshing notes of sunny citrus fruits.

Best served with ice and chilled tonic water. Garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit and fresh mint leaves.

Chocolate Orange

Rich velvety chocolate swirls around this gin. Powdery cocoa and silky vanilla succumb to zesty, sweet orange bursts and an unmistakeably full-bodied juniper, Dry cassia bark balanced with smooth fresh cream lingers in the mouth.

Best served with ice and chilled tonic water. Garnish with cinnamon and a twist of orange.
