London Spirits Competition Silver Medal Winner 2020
Solva Dry Gin is a hand crafted Welsh gin that shares hints of bergamot, black tea and gorse flower, with juniper at the fore. Created to be paired with crisp, cold tonic and enjoyed as a refreshing G&T.
This gin’s botanicals pay homage to the history of Solva, and smugglers hauling bags of black tea up the cliff-sides, which would often crash through the native gorse flower bushes on the way.
Every bottle is craft distilled using the London Dry method in our copper pot still – Meredith – on site here at the In The Welsh Wind distillery, in west Wales.
This gin was originally developed and created for the Solva Edge Festival, and we worked with local artist Connor Stephens to create its label.
Proceeds from sales of Solva Gin go to the Edge Festival charity to continue its work in Solva and the St David's Peninsular.
Honest men and women made of the sea, the salt and the wind, hauling their illicit goods up the high cliff faces of St Brides under cover of darkness, the moon their only witness.
Tea, spice and sugar all exotic to these shores. The best they kept for themselves, stowed deep in the caves at Solva harbour’s western approach, fine tobacco, fruits, gunpowder and of course Rum!
Solva rum evokes these memories, a crisp, smooth, smokey rum, with plenty of flavour, black tea from the orient, bergamot from Seville and only the finest tobacco. A rum with real character.
Created in Summer 2020 to coincide with the Edge festival, this cask aged rum is a real gem. Enjoy long over ice with coke or ginger beer. Garnish well with orange or lemon.
