Happy Saint David’s Day to all of our lovely Welsh customers!

 

 

 

As many of you know Penrhos Farm is located on the welsh border, with penrhos translating to ‘top (pen) of the moor/hill (rhos)’ and it has often been suggested that many years ago Penrhos was part of Wales before the borders were moved.

 

We are so lucky that when we look out of THE window we have the most amazing views looking over into Powys in wales.

The Gin Guide Review

Penrhos Gin delivers a wealth of uplifting floral aromas and flavours that instantly brings to mind the blooming trees of spring. Layered on a light and classic core of traditional botanicals are floral rose, hibiscus and cherry blossom, while cinnamon, cardamom and chamomile give soft and complementary depth. A subtle touch of honey balances and mingles with pink pepper to add further character, moving into the light and floral finish with a hint of liquorice. It’s a fragrant and flavoursome gin that carries its flavour very well in a Gin & Tonic, with pink grapefruit or mint making an ideal garnish for starting points.Paul Jackson, 2020

Penrhos Blueberry Gin Liqueur

Christmas Mulled Blueberry Gin

Christmas Mulled Blueberry Gin

It is hard to find something comparable to a classic G&T, but with the run-up to Christmas, this is the perfect alternative with a hot cocktail to sip your way through the colder months.

Mulled blueberry gin cocktail

This is a perfect Christmas drink to have with friends and family, with a nice mince pie or sausage roll.

You will need:

 

 

  • 1 litre of cloudy Apple juice
  • 2 Cinnamons ticks
  • 1 vanilla pod (cut down the middle)
  • 1tsp of ground cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • a thumb-sized piece of root ginger cut into slices.

 

Gently warm the apple juice with the spices and let the flavour infuse for at least 30 minutes (it makes the house smell Christmasy too!)

Once it’s hot ladle into cups and then add a measure of Penhros Blueberry Liqueur and sit back, relax and enjoy!

Our Blueberry Liqueur makes the best Christmas present for a loved one, or for yourself! It also pairs beautifully with Procceco or simply on its own over ice.

Zero Alcohol Free Raspberry with Raspberries

Our Penrhos Zero Raspberry is Here!

Zero Alcohol Free Raspberry Bottle

OUR PENRHOS ZERO, RASPBERRY IS HERE!

 

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our first non alcoholic botanical spirit is here!

After over a year of experimenting, testing and tasting our Zero is available online and in shops and we couldn’t be happier with what we have produced.

We are the first to make a distilled non alcoholic spirit with real fruit juice, which could make us either mad or a genius! Our secret recipe consists of specially selected botanicals including junipers, peppercorns and our own wibbly-wobbly blueberries creating an elegant and sophisticated drink. 

Bottling Zero Alcohol Free Raspberry
Zero Alcohol Free Raspberry with Raspberries

THE ZERO STORY

As we have mentioned before, combatting fruit waste is extremely important to us and we have wanted to use our wibbly wobbly raspberries from the beginning of Penrhos Spirits journey, We saw a growing need for a gin alternative last year but we wanted ours to be different and special. After many discussion between the team we decided that creating a raspberry pink non alcoholic seemed the best way to champion our amazing raspberries grown here at Penrhos.

 

We wanted to make sure that our Zero held the same qualities as our gin, which meant it had to be distilled in Connie with our Penrhos blueberries and it is certainly something we are proud to include in our range. Our Penrhos Zero will quickly become your new preferred weekday tipple as we have created a gin alternative that you will enjoy drinking dry with all the flavour, ready to be enjoyed as you would your favourite gin.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Our Zero is to be served as an alternative to gin, for the days when you fancy all the flavour without the alcohol.

ZERO & TONIC

 

Always start with your favourite glass and plenty of ice, this helps to keep the drink cooler for longer and less dilution, because who wants a watery gin and tonic? Then grab Penrhos Zero and add 50ml, top up with your chosen tonic, give it a gentle stir and garnish with plenty of raspberries and mint.

Most importantly, sit back, relax and enjoy a Penrhos Zero Raspberry and tonic!

Rhubarb Flavours

What mixer should you use with Rhubarb gin?

HOW WE MAKE OUR RHUBARB GIN

Our rhubarb is made by adding real rhubarb juice to our award winning London Dry which is already packed with flavour. It is mixed together for up to eight hours for the perfect blend leaving you with a pink cloudy tasty rhubarb gin.

WHAT MAKES OUR RHUBARB GIN TO SPECIAL?

When we started out on the journey to becoming distillers the most important thing was celebrating British farming and using real fruit rather than an extract or a flavoring. This helps to give our Rhubarb gin the real fruity tangy kick of rhubarb that can’t be created with anything else.

WHAT MIXER SHOULD YOU USE WITH RHUBARB GIN?

Rhubarb Gin with Glass of Gin

THE RHUBARB GIN AND TONIC

Always begin with your favourite gin glass and plenty of ice.

 

Pour 50ml of Penrhos Rhubarb over the ice so the ice chills the gin.

 

Top up with an Indian Tonic and garnish with a slice of orange. The orange helps to bring the rhubarb to life and it will help to create the best G&T you have ever had!

RHUBARB AND GINGER ALE

Using a hightball glass full over ice pour 50cl of Penrhos Rhubarb and let it run over the ice.

 

Add a squeeze or fresh orange (or a splash of orange juice) and top up with ginger beer or ale.

 

Garnish with mint – top tip, make sure you smack your mint to release the flavour!

Apple & Elderflower gin

Why apple gin cocktails are the best!

Apple harvest is slowly coming to an end on the farm so we wanted to celebrate some amazing cocktails that can be made with our Penrhos Apple & Elderflower gin.

For those of you who are new to Penrhos, we make this gin using the wibbly wobbly apples that don’t make it to the supermarket due to being misshapen. They still tasted amazing and are juiced and added to our wonderful gin. We also use Herefordshire hedgerow elderflower which works perfectly with the fruity apples.

 

In September we were able to add a Great Taste Awards to our list of awards and our Apple & Elderflower is able to wear the medal with pride.

 

Why not try some of these amazing Apple & Elderflower cocktails!
