Including our Steeltown Dry Welsh Gin, Steeltown Welsh Vodka, Dragon’s Breath Lightly Spiced Welsh Rum, and our limited distillation Blueberry Gin. Not only are these our first spirits on offer, available for a limited time. Once finished, you can never taste them again.
We also pair each of our batch of distilled spirits with our tonic partners, Fever-Tree premium mixers and tonics. Each week we use different flavoured mixers, giving you the chance to experiment with us and tell us what you think of the ever-changing flavour notes. Currently, we provide four Fever-Tree Mixers, namely Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic, Madagascan Cola, Mexican Lime Soda, and Fever-Tree Blood Orange Soda. You will also receive a variety of botanicals to combine with your drinks during the evening and surprise goodies. Our botanical packs include Juniper Berries, Dried Limes, Dried Pineapple, Ginger, and Dried Grapefruit. Additional items include pens, a packet of Jones Crisps, and chocolates to complete the Virtual Tasting Kit and for you to enjoy.
