Newport, South Wales, United Kingdom, 25 May 2021—The Spirit of Wales Distillery launches their second gin in their limited release distillery collection. A contemporary styled premium Welsh pink gin, created with wild forged blueberries and heather tips. The wild blueberry gin with heather notes is a soft floral gin with citrus, orris root, and piney characteristics of juniper.

Forged Wild Blueberry Gin with Heather Sweetness.

The Spirit of Wales Distillery Forged Wild Blueberry Pink Gin. A contemporary styled blueberry gin with bright citrus aromas and heather honey sweetness to start. Softer floral-like blueberry tones follow on the palate, with bright, juicy notes that compliment both the floral flavours of the heather tips and orris root. There are bittersweet pithy grapefruit and lemon notes, which mellow with the piney characteristics of juniper. They packed this pink Welsh gin with sweet florals and finishes with citrus bitterness and menthol freshness on the tip of the tongue.

James Gibbons, Head Distiller from the Distillery, explained.

“To create a pink gin that could stand in the category. The Spirit of Wales uses blueberry, which acts as an addition to the whole, rather than overpowering the gin. The gin remains at full strength with sweetening from with honey-like heather tips rather than adding any sugar.”

Daniel Dyer, founder and gin enthusiast commented,

“After trialling fresh fruits with our juniper led gin, and Blueberry was a clear winner! Adding no artificial flavourings, nor colourings to achieve the spirit. It is a fruity and delicious gin, when combined with the fever tree aromatic tonic water, which brings the deeper flavours to life!”

Spirit of Wales Serving Suggestion

The perfect pairing for the Spirit of Wales Distillery Release Forged Wild Blueberry Gin is with Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic water. Both a pink delight with an overall deep colour, a superb choice for a Spring gin and tonic.
