Citrus & Thyme - A Welsh Dry Gin by WatchObsession
Earlier this year we went down to Cardigan to see 'In The Welsh Wind' for a Gin Making Experience. We had a few excellent G&T's then set about creating our own Gin recipe to distill and take away. The idea was that you choose one of 4 base recipes then add your own additional botanicals.
Our plan was to create a Gin that we could give away to suppliers at Christmas whilst also supplementing our own Gin addiction. So.. after extensive taste testing we decided that our additional ingredients were some amazing Amalfi Lemon peel and Thyme (obviously!)
So, skip forward a few months and the 'WatchObsession' Gin was bottled, labelled and ready for collection.
Since our visit in February, 'In The Welsh Wind' had moved their Gin lab from Ellen and Alex's family farm to the most fantastic location on the A487 coastal road in Tanygroes. It is the perfect spot as this former pub gives them loads more space to develop their rapidly growing business.
The building has received a massive makeover and Alex and Ellen have maintained the charm that was present in their previous location, only this time they have a lot more shiny copper stills.
We are really please with our WatchObsession Gin. The whole experience has been fantastic
If you are interested in a visit to West Wales at all and have an interest in Gin we cannot recommend this place highly enough. They are such a great bunch of people, full of enthusiasm and passion about what they do, and the Gin is fantastic. My only recommendation is to either book a taxi or nominate a designated driver because you won't be driving afterwards!
