I visited a wonderful distillery near New Quay in Wales a few years ago now but it’s still one I always recommend as it’s so unusual and tastes amazing. This place is terrific. It’s small, friendly, organic and it makes and sells a different kind of gin to the ones you get on the supermarket shelf. If you are a gin connoisseur or if you want to impress your guests then you should certainly visit.
The distillery launched its seaweed gin on 1 March 2014 and quickly sold out and it’s no wonder why. When you first taste this gin, your tastebuds will spring into life and you will want to try more to break down the layers of flavour and of course, to crank up your intake of super foods!
Situated down a long and narrow farm track in Llandysul, you may feel as though you have taken a wrong turn. Stick with it and right at the very bottom, you will find a very smart art gallery/tasting centre where the owners will be delighted to introduce you to a number of Artisan Organic Spirits. You will find it difficult to leave empty handed once you have had a taste of its award winning spirits and make sure you stock up as they are in high demand.
The distillery also shares its home with Teifi Farmhouse Cheese. Before you even walk into the shop you can smell how good this cheese is and so it’s no surprise to discover that its flagship cheese is multi-award winning. Made on-site at the farm’s dairy, the distinct cheeses are crafted using only the finest, locally sourced raw (unpasteurised) milk.
With its Artisan model, exceptional quality of produce and friendly welcome, I predict very good things to come for Glynhynod Farm.
