Welsh micro distillery goes Transatlantic

One of the most celebrated craft producers in the UK, the Dyfi Distillery in Corris, has secured a prestigious export contract to the USA.

The distillery has partnered with Broadbent Selections, one of the finest American wine and spirits importers, and created a Dyfi Gin blend especially for them.

Much like the distillery’s iconic Pollination bottling, it is a Dovey Native Botanical Gin, based on a complex formulation of indigenous flowers, leaves, berries and conifers. And like Pollination Gin, it is being celebrated immediately after release, having just been awarded Gold at the 2021 Gin Masters.

“This is really the culmination of a conversation which started six years ago,” commented Dyfi Distillery co-founder Danny Cameron, “but meticulousness does take time to get right. We’ve learned to be patient, and as the Broadbent team work with some of the best in the world, they don’t like shortcuts, just like we don’t like shortcuts.”

“Dyfi Distillery is an absolutely world class producer, and we’re very excited to be working with them” said President of Broadbent Selections, Bartholomew Broadbent.

“We work with some of the very finest restaurants and retailers across the USA, and based on our zero-compromise approach to quality, this phenomenal gin is a perfect fit for our most demanding clients.”

The Dyfi Distillery operates from within the Dyfi UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and is, unusually for a distillery of its size, frequently open to passing visitors. It is located within the Corris Craft Centre, a hub for thriving independent craft producers.
