In the Welsh Wind Signature Style Gin wins prestigious awards

07.12.20

In the Welsh Wind Distillery is delighted to announce that the first gin it has released under its own brand label has won two prestigious awards.

In the Welsh Wind Signature Style dry gin has been awarded a silver medal in the Gin Masters 2020 in the Premium gin category and a bronze medal from the USA Spirits Ratings 2020. In addition to the gin itself, the label design, created in collaboration with Think Bold Studio has also won a Design Masters silver medal.

In the Welsh Wind Signature Style Dry Gin is a premium 43% vol dry gin inspired by the once-bustling harbour towns of West Wales. Distilled in small batches at In the Welsh Wind Distillery, this is the inaugural ‘own label’ gin from a brand that has blazed a trail developing award-winning spirits for other businesses.

In the Welsh Wind Distillery was established in January 2018. Self-styled ‘maverick distillers’, Alex Jungmayr and Ellen Wakelam were inspired by the magic of telling the story of a place or a time through the careful curation of botanicals, and distillation itself. Alex and Ellen threw themselves into the business of creating a distillery in their beloved West Wales. The distillery’s Signature Style gin tells tales of the trade routes crossing oceans, and of cargoes finding land on the Ceredigion coast. A wildly diverse range of goods was imported into New Quay, including ingredients and flavours now synonymous with Wales and the Welsh kitchen. It is these commodities, sweet orange, cinnamon, cloves and ginger, tea and currants, landed on the Welsh coast from far off lands, that inspired the flavour profile of this oil-rich gin, smooth enough to drink neat and equally delicious with a splash of unflavoured tonic.

Alongside their own gin, In the Welsh Wind have created over 35 gins for 26 different companies, 6 of which won International Wine and Spirit Competition medals in 2020. These awards for their own brand Signature Style gin are a testament to all the distillery has achieved in less than 3 years. They also come hot on the heels of a number of awards that the distillery has won including the Wales Start Up Awards Rural Business of the Year, and the GB Entrepreneur Food and Drink Entrepreneur Wales. The distillery has also been shortlisted in the UK Rural Business Awards 2020 in the Rural Drinks category and in the Food and Drink Federation Emerging Business category 2020.

As well as distinctive premium craft gins, the distillery is also pioneering the first fully ‘grain to glass’ Welsh whisky. Grain grown locally to the distillery will be malted locally – the first time that barely has been commercially malted for whisky in Wales for at least 100 years – and possibly longer. Welsh malted barley will be distilled into new make spirit at their West Wales premises, and then matured in casks sourced in Wales and chosen to complement the distillery’s Welsh Origin Whisky. 30 litre casks are available to buy now from the website.
