Details

Dyfi Distillery produces artisan gins crafted with wild Welsh botanicals foraged in the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park..

Based at Corris Craft Centre, near Machynlleth and this locally produced gin has been recognised in the Great British Food Awards 2017 & 2018 for the best gin produced in the UK. The prestigious award is for its Pollination Gin, which the judges described as “seriously beautiful” and has featured widely on BBC and ITV. Drinks guru Joe Wadsack said in 2020, “No one makes better tasting gin in my opinion in the whole of Great Britain.”

Dyfi Distillery is one of nine studios at the Corris Craft Centre, run by brothers Pete and Danny Cameron. They established the first commercial gin distillery in Mid Wales in 2016. Pete has lived, worked and foraged in the Dyfi Valley for 35 years, while Danny is a long-standing drinks industry professional and international-standard judge.

Pollination Gin is one of the few gins in the world produced from mostly foraged botanical ingredients. In this distillery’s case, the ingredients are gathered within the Dyfi Valley UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Dyfi Distillery has already won The Independent’s IndyBest Award for the Best New Gin in 2017 for its Hibernation Gin and no less than seven medals at this year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition.

The gin here is made in genuinely small batches, using what one journalist described as “the last word in distilling equipment.” In any case, the attention to detail is for all to see through the large glass windows from the visitor area to the distillery itself. There is also artwork on display to explain how the brothers work, and there’s always a member of the family to meet you, chat and taste the award-winning range.

A distillation run is in part determined by the foraging basket - the result is a Welsh Gin like nothing else: just as it should be.
