ABOUT US

THE STORY BEHIND BARRY ISLAND SPIRITS CO

Home to golden beaches, great views, a wonderful community and of course a famous TV show, we're proud to call Barry Island our home.

Whilst walking our Black Labrador Darcy along our beautiful stretch of coastline it's easy to be inspired by our surroundings. It's here that the idea for Barry Island Gin first came about. 


Created by us to our own unique recipes, Barry Island Gin and Barry Island Rum are made by blending the finest botanicals with the purest Welsh water from the Cambrian Mountains to create premium Welsh spirits.

We're Tim & Claire - It's Lovely to Meet You

Along with our side-kick and bar dog Darcy, we're the people behind Barry Island Spirits Co.

We're not part of a wider group, or brand, or group of brands! There's no investors or tie-ins with any breweries or distributors. Barry Island Spirits Co is fully independent and that's something we're incredibly proud of.

We live on Barry Island and our surroundings are the inspiration behind both Barry Island Gin and Barry Island Rum. What set out as a product to be enjoyed in our bar (Craft Republic) has turned in to the development of a spirits range that's received amazing feedback. 

 

Barry Island Spirits Co was created by us, on Barry Island in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales.  All of our recipes have been developed by and are unique to us. We also grow as many of of our botanicals as we can on our Barry Island allotment which has stunning views over Barry Docks and out towards Flat Holm.  

 

We now distribute Barry Island Gin and Barry Island Rum all over the UK. We're incredibly proud that Barry Island Gin was also selected as Gin of the Month at Heston Blumenthal's Michelin Star restaurant, the Hinds Head, in December 2020.
