Welsh Sisters the Captain’s Wife  ‘Portside’ Special Edition Gin 

Welsh Sisters are Tania and Becky, in the Ceredigion coastal village of New Quay. They have a passion for the sea, the women who’ve inspired them and gin. Passions that they’ve brought together in their range of award-winning gins. Using boldly unconventional botanicals to tell the story of the women who’ve always played a huge part in Welsh coastal communities they produce small batch dry gin hand-crafted from a coastal distillery in West Wales.

First, there was Morwyn, a unique coastal dry gin infused with Gorse flower, Angelica root, Sage and Grapefruit and tells the tale of Morwyn, a powerful Sea Goddess in the ancient kingdom of Ceredigion. Then came The Captain’s Wife, inspired by a Welsh Woman’s

voyage on the Trade Wind Routes from Wales to South America, with a base of fragrant Juniper Berries, paired with Andalucian Lemon, Fig and Yerba Mate tea. And here we have Portside, a special edition of Yerba Mate tea, pomegranate, bay and other fine botanicals,

that has been matured and tinged pink in port casks. Named after the rowdy parties thrown by the Captain’s Wife when ashore on her travels, it’s a sophisticated and complex gin with a powerful hit of pomegranate assuaged by the sweetness of port. It can be sipped on its own to fully appreciate its ruby rich flavours and aroma, which have a wee hint of a good whisky

about them, or mixed with a small measure of a Mediterranean mixer to unleash the flavour of the pomegranate. A great and rather different addition to any gin collection.
