Pete and Danny Cameron & family
Pete Cameron moved to Dyfi decades ago to study environmental sciences and stayed on to become a beekeeper, forager, and hill farmer. His brother Danny spent this time becoming a leading drinks industry consultant and international wine judge. They decided to combine their skills and released their first Welsh gin in 2016. Demand has consistently outstripped supply for their unique hand-made distillations.
The gin distillery warmly welcomes visitors without appointment during opening times. Visitors can view the distillery and learn about the processes. You can even chat and have a small gin tasting experience (over 18 only) with the family. Dogs and accompanied children are welcome.
Welsh Gin Distillery
Based in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, the Dyfi Distillery is focused on producing Welsh gin of both the highest possible quality, and ones which genuinely reflect this place. Tradition is combined with innovation, which creates demand for these hand-crafted gins from around the world.
The Cameron brothers aren’t only inspired by this special landscape, they actively forage here too for 28 different botanical components to make their Welsh gin with. This distillery is one of the very few around the world to work in this way. Visitors on days out in North Wales can not only meet and taste with the family, but also learn about the foraging processes. Not to mention, see how distillation brings these local flavours together, using some of the most sophisticated distilling equipment to be found anywhere.
