Made with wild Welsh botanicals
foraged in the Dyfi Biosphere
Our passion is to produce an exceptional gin of world-class quality, which could come from nowhere else. The Dyfi is recognised by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, and provides us with an enviable and unique flora spectrum to draw upon, as well as a meticulous selection the finest classic gin botanicals.
Pollination gin is produced by the highest standard London Dry method, in extremely limited small batches, using pure grain spirit and locally drawn spring water. Our foraged botanicals come from within the Biosphere: from the Snowdonia foothills, through the Dyfi Forest, and down to the estuary marshlands.
On a canvas of carefully selected classic gin botanicals, we 'paint' the flavours only Dyfi can combine, including wild flowers, aromatic leaves, fruits and conifer tips.
We steep these components together in a temperature-controlled maceration, before precision-distilling in our small Colorado stills.
We can’t create Pollination Gin all year round, and in order to ensure sustainability, production is necessarily very limited. Each bottle is hand signed and lot-numbered.
45% alcohol by volume, non-chill filtered
Pollination Gin has been named Best UK Gin at the Great British Food Awards 2017.

Made by using a carefully selected blend of new and older ‘reserve’ wine from their 1er cru Vineyards. With a great rip citrus backbone and a core of toasty, biscuit, honeyed stone fruits and soft baked apple. The mousse is lovely and soft, delicate bubbles and good length on the finish. The wine was vinified in oak barrels. The Edouard Brun range offer such great value.
This is a stunning rose Champagne. Elegant and stylish character; great colour and lovely bubbles. Showing lots of subtle summer fruits, rose and orange blossom with a fresh, creamy mousse. Delicious!!
A blindingly good wine for the price made from one of our favourite grapes, roussanne, that you find in Northern and Southern Rhone blends, but in this case from South Africa. It is a masterful little wine that wont overtake proceedings but will add a lovely bit of character to a lunch or an evening - a scent here and there of stone fruits and mountain herbs as you lift the glass to your nose - with just the right amount of fruit and character for foods like fish, chicken, or fresh pasta with vegetables or riccota.
It will be lovely with light starters like burrata and olives. It sits firmly in, if not at the very summit of, the unbeatable-value midweek bottle category. If you are in one of those households where someone likes Sauvignon but someone has gone off it, and you can't agree on what to drink then try this.
This is a Californian wine, using top quality Napa Valley fruit. The bottle is collectable because of it's label, but the wine itself also receives notable attention. It's big, solid, deep and powerful.
A classic rose made from Pinot Noir.
Luminescent, super pale, fragrant stone fruit nose, linear and austere, peachy, a hint of umami, lingering acidity, a rose with depth, purity and intrigue.
