Naturally, Sweet Steeltown Forged Wild Blueberry Welsh Gin
 
Spirit of Wales Distillery Forged Wild Blueberry Pink Gin. A modern styled blueberry gin with bright citrus aromas and natural heather honey sweetness to start. Softer floral-like blueberry tones follow on the palate, with bright, juicy notes that complement the floral flavours of heather tips and orris root.
 
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.”
 
Steeltown Welsh Blueberry gin has hints of bittersweet pithy grapefruit and lemon notes, which mellow with the familiar piney characteristics of juniper. The Newport-based distillery has created a deep pink Welsh gin that has a pleasant oiliness to it combined with citrus pithiness to finish, with no added sugar or colours.
 
Daniel Dyer, founder and gin enthusiast, commented, “After trialing fresh fruits with our juniper-led gin, under our distillery release, we realized the Blueberry was a clear winner! Adding no artificial flavourings, nor colourings to achieve Steeltown Blueberry Gin. It is a fruity and delicious gin and tonic when combined with the Fever-Tree aromatic Tonic water, which brings the deeper flavours to life!”
 
The perfect pairing for the Spirit of Wales Distillery Release Forged Wild Blueberry Gin is with the distilleries tonic partner’s Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic water. Both a pink delight with an overall deep colour, a superb choice for a flavourful gin and tonic. Spirit of Wales Steeltown Welsh Gins are available directly from the distillery, at markets and gin festivals around Wales, and the online store https://www.spiritofwales.com
