Hensol Castle Distillery’s Welsh Dry Gin has been crowned best in Wales at the prestigious World Gin Awards 2023.
The ceremony, which showcases the best of the best gins from all over the glove, saw Hensol Castle Distillery’s Welsh Dry Gin win the award for Best in Country. Later in February 2023, it also won gold in the title of World’s Best Classic Gin.
The Welsh Dry Gin also scooped a gold medal in the classic gin category, while the distillery’s two flavoured gins also made the award podium. The Blood Orange Zest Gin won a silver medal and the Wild Strawberry and Hibiscus Gin won a bronze medal in the flavoured gin category.
Chris Leeke, Hensol Castle Distillery’s managing director, said: “To be recognised on this prestigious platform, competing against some established names, is a huge success for our relatively new distillery. Despite only opening in 2021, we’re already racking up the accolades. Our success is a testament to the skills of our master distiller and the hard work of our team, and it puts us in good stead to continue our offering throughout 2023 and beyond.”
Hensol Castle Distillery is located in the cellars of the 400-year old Hensol Castle, which sits in more than 650 acres of parkland and is part of the successful four-star Vale Resort– an award-winning spa, golf, conference and hotel complex.
