Praise for Barry Island Gin
"A beautifully balanced gin, fine for sipping over ice, but equally at home with a dash of tonic and slice of orange. There's a delightfully soft aromatic lead on the nose. Orange is dominant, but backed up by bright, yet rounded spice notes.
“Love has gone into the making of this. Really well made. Great as a G&T or Martini base.

“Barry Island Gin was the perfect choice for our Gin of the Month. Its freshness, lime and blood orange aromas have made it a firm favourite with our guests.
It simply is one of the best gins we have come across for some time.”
— Lowri Jones, Head Sommelier at The Hinds Head in Bray - the Michelin starred pub run by world renowned experimental chef, Heston Blumenthal and part of The Fat Duck Group
"Juniper is paired with sweet sherbet on the nose and hints of orange and peppery hues (the latter coming from the alcohol I think, rather than pepper botanicals). Smooth with licks of sweetness, pleasant grippy, eau de vie style tannins and fresh acidity. Warming to finish with more orange notes now and some warming spice. I'm sure even with tonic this would be marvellous but for me this is martini grade gin. Good stuff!!"
— Ben Franks, FRSA
"Soooo good. Barry Island Gin sets out to use the freshest botanicals and using only the purist welsh water!
A true Welsh gem here... using a blend of botanicals that aims to give the perfect balance of juniper, citrus and spice!"
