SPIRIT OF WALES DISTILLERY
Distilled for You
The Spirit of Wales is distilled for you in Newport, Wales, by passionate and friendly people.
About The Spirit Of Wales
We are a craft distillery in Newport, South Wales, home of commemorative Steeltown Welsh Gins, award-winning Welsh Vodka and Dragon’s Breath curiously Welsh Rums, vodka and 70% ABV Absinthe. Founded in 2021 by a team of passionate distillers, committed to using only the finest ingredients inspired by the landscapes of Wales and traditional distilling methods to create unique and high-quality spirits that capture the essence of Wales.
Igniting the flavour of the dragon
There are more castles per square mile in Wales than anywhere else in the world, six hundred to be exact. We recently declared our Spirit of Wales’ distillery castle number 601. It is fair to call ourselves a castle when we house sleeping dragons who ignite our spirits.
REIMAGINED AND REFINED
Premium Distillation Process
When we create our refined artisanal gins, vodka, and rums, we juxtapose flavour by selecting botanicals from the Welsh landscape. We also source sustainable materials for processing our spirits, like the Welsh coal used to filter our Welsh vodkas.
We approach flavour from a scientific point-of-view combined with the creative potential in everyday food, spices, smells, and tastes that mix that we reimagine to expose the new. Join us for a guided tour and taste the award-winning Steeltown and Dragon’s Breath Spirits.
Spirit of Wales drinks are premium and refined, meaning you do not have to add much more than a tonic or another mixer, with a higher percentage in ABV, so one shot will do for sipping, mixing or cocktails.
Let us take you on a flavour journey with our award-winning drinks. Try them at the distillery bar area, markets and events around Wales or buy the mini trio to try at home.
Mathematician Robert Recorde invented the equals sign, followed by the plus and subtraction signs leading the way for British algebra. His algebra which plays an important role in developing our distillation methods.
We are a small team of passionate people who cannot wait for you to taste the steel and passion in every bottle of Steeltown and Dragon’s Breath Drinks.
