Aber Falls launches range of flavoured gins and liqueurs
Aber Falls Distillery has launched its first range of premium flavoured gins and liqueurs.
The North Wales distillery, in the village of Abergwyngregyn, has produced a collection of premium crafted drinks made using Welsh-inspired ingredients and botanicals.
The new range includes Orange Marmalade and Rhubarb & Ginger Gin variants, both priced at £24 per 70cl bottle, with an abv of 41.3% abv. The producer also has a trio of liqueurs in flavours of Salted Toffee, Violet and Coffee & Dark Chocolate, which are £20 per 70cl bottle. Meanwhile, Aber Falls’ flagship single-malt whisky, made using Welsh barley and aged at the distillery, will be available from 2020.
The company plans to open an on-site visitor centre in 2018, which will offer tastings, tours and training courses in the craft of distilling. Aber Falls has also been creating partnerships with other regional tourism operators to further support the local economy.
James Wright, managing director, said: “We are very excited to have resurrected the proud tradition of distilling in North Wales, following a 100 year absence. Our team of distillers, all of whom are local to Aber Falls, are extremely passionate about the new distillery and product range, so it is great to get our hand-crafted, premium flavoured gins and liqueurs off the production line in time for Christmas.
“The distinctive, Welsh-inspired bottles really capture the spirit of Wales and will create significant stand-out on shelf, attracting new consumers to the category, just in time for the busy trading period.”
