Newport, South Wales, United Kingdom, 14 August 2021 – Taste the Spirit of Wales Distillery’s Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin at your local My Gin Festivals festival and meet the makers behind this award-winning spirit

For connoisseurs of craft tipples, the various My Gin Festivals are the ultimate destination for gin lovers in the UK. My Gin Festivals are a collective of three Gin Festival brands operating in England, Scotland, and Wales.

My Gin Festivals showcase local, small-batch gin and pair them with carefully selected tonics from each country in the UK. This year the up-and-coming Spirit of Wales Distillery will be at the gin festivals with their award-winning Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin.

Founder of the Spirit of Wales Distillery, Daniel Dyer commented, “We are excited to be invited to take part take part in the My Gin Festivals with our award-winning Steeltown Welsh Gin and look forward to extending the partnership with the rest of the events around the country for the rest of 2021.” 

The Spirit of Wales Distillery’s Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin seeks to capture the passion of the Welsh and commemorate the workers from the coal and steel industries. The 13 botanicals recall traditional seaside holidays, ornamental floral gardens, and the local heather for a rich, multi-layered taste. It’s no wonder it received silver from both the IWSC and Gin Masters’ competitions in 2021. Steeltown Welsh Gin is available at the Gin Festivals bars or from the Spirit of Wales Distillery stand.

The first gin in our core range has been created with a versatile flavour profile, making it a great option for a Welsh Gin & Tonic, whilst also shining through in complex cocktails,” says James Gibbons, the head distiller at the Spirit of Wales Distillery.
