With Scotland and England so well represented in the gin market it’s great to see some amazing Welsh distilleries emerge onto the scene. To celebrate this, I recently held a masterclass at the London Welsh Centre in Kings Cross to showcase distilleries from all corners of Wales. Each distillery has its own very unique style and there are some incredible gins being produced so next time you’re looking for something a little different don’t be afraid to look to Wales for the answer.
Having lived in a small two bed flat for five years the move to a large townhouse was a bit of a shock, no longer are we falling over each other, instead we are losing each other! When we viewed the house for the first time I was perplexed at the fact the basement had been converted into a self contained flat but as we discussed it more we started to view it as an opportunity to help us raise some much needed cash to help with the renovations.

WOW! What a few days it has been. After what has seemed like an endless house sale/ purchase process we finally got the keys to our new house 10 days ago. The search started in August and after receiving an offer on our flat in early October we were lucky enough to find our dream house within days.
This gin ticks all of the boxes for me as a consumer, hand crafted (yes), local (yes) donates some profits to a worthy cause (yes)! All sounding a bit too good to be true? Well, I can say with certainty that contents of the bottle don’t disappoint. Read more
