Newport, South Wales, United Kingdom, 28 April 2021—The Spirit of Wales Distillery launches their first experience. A virtual tasting and tour that you can enjoy safely from the comfort of your home.

The first event takes place over two hours on 7 May 2021 and limited to 20 people, or pre-book for future events.

A unique Welsh Experience

This unique experience gives visitors a taste of the Spirit Wales first Distillery Release Welsh Spirits, including the first in the collection, a dry Welsh Gin, a contemporary Welsh Vodka, and premium speciality white and lightly spiced Welsh Rums. Erica Willmott and Daniel Dyer will host live from the distillery and joined by participants at home. A unique virtual tasting and tour that is informative and fun. Unlike any other tasting event in the country, we guide participants through each flavour journey of our premium Welsh spirits combining the best aromas and taste possible in each drink. Between each tasting, guests can take part in a quiz to test their knowledge of all things Welsh and watch our distillery video tour.

Daniel Dyer, Founder and CEO of the Spirit of Wales Distillery, commented,

“We’ve had such an enjoyable time taste testing our spirits with friends and family, and it is exciting that we can now launch a regular event. We welcome folks outside of our area to join us and experience our spirits. It’s also a great family and team bonding experience with lots of information about our distillery, our process and of course Wales.”

Erica Willmott, Events Manager at the Spirit of Wales Distillery, adds,

“We look forward to showing you around the distillery and introducing you to our Welsh Spirits, so grab your mates and let me take you on a flavour journey.”
