Developing a custom branded spirit is a labour of love for us here at In the Welsh Wind distillery. More than just white-label gin, we strive to create an individual spirit that represents your business, your brand, and tells the story you want it to tell. We delight in getting it right – to hear the excitement in our brand owners’ voices after they’ve tasted a sample, the look in their eye that says ‘we’ve done it’, and we pride ourselves on achieving that every time. And while the positive feedback from our brands and their customers is ultimately what we strive for, we can’t help but feel excited and proud when one of our custom branded spirits wins an award.
Tenby Dry Gin, Pembrokeshire Gin Co

Tir & Môr, Lobster and Môr
This citrus and thyme gin was created to capture the essence of the Pembrokeshire coast and countryside, and to marry well with the glorious seafood the seas offer up, this concept gin is a firm favourite, as welcome in the kitchen as it is on the bar.

Solva gin tells the tales of smugglers hauling their illicit bounty up Pembrokeshire cliffs. Gorse flower, black tea and bergamot join with juniper in this gin which was originally created as a gin for the Edge Festival, and is sold to support the community.

Limbeck cask-aged gin, Eccentric Spirit Co
Limbeck cask-aged gin has been matured in a Burgundy cask which gives complexity to the flavour as well as a beautiful peach colour to the liquid. Along with the other gins in the Eccentric range, Limbeck moved to the In the Welsh Wind stable in early 2020. Rebranded, it offers the drinker a gorgeously heady mix of blue ginger, citrus & tarragon, Seville orange & orris.
