Celebrating World Gin Day!

Published on 2024-06-08 / By Boo@Trefeddian
Saturday the 8th June is the day to raise a glass and join in the global celebration of all things gin! The idea of this day is to celebrate gin, whether a simple G&T, neat or in a cocktail.

Gin can be traced back to the middle ages. It was then called Jenever – a Dutch spirit made with Juniper, a botanical made in the northern hemisphere. It was then known about the medical effects and disinfectant healing powers of juniper berries. Today, the taste of juniper must be the signature note in any gin. 

Here at the Trefeddian, we have a wide selection of gin available. The Dyfi distillery is where our most local gin is distilled at the Corris Craft Centre. It is produced using hand foraged local botanicals from the foothills of South Snowdonia. Dyfi Original, Pollination & Hibernation Gin have a strength of 45%, but these are overshadowed by the eye watering 57% navy strength Navigation gin.

The other popular Welsh gins that we serve here at the Trefeddian are Brecon Botanical, from the Penderyn distillery and Aber Falls gin. These are distilled in Abergwyngregyn using Welsh water. We also stock in our bar both the copper distilled gin alongside the popular Orange Marmalade flavour.

The other gins that we serve at the Trefeddian are the well-know Gordons, Tanqueray, Bombay Sapphire, Hereford, Hendricks & Monkey 47 or if your preference is a flavoured gin, you can sample the Warner Edwards Rhubarb gin or Pinkster Raspberry gin.
