Here at penrhos it is a family affair with two farming families working together to create something special
Farmer, distiller & Founder
Dickies was born at Penrhos a few… years ago and was a keen farmer from a young age.
When dickie isn’t farming or distilling gin he can be found on the cricket field and also has an interest in rugby which is where he met his farming partner Charlie.
Favourite drink: Penrhos Apple & Elderflower in a glass full of ice with tonic and thin slices of apple.

Like Dickie, Charlie was born into a farming family and has always had an interest in farming. After completing a Bio-science degree at Newcastle University he then followed in his father footsteps of growing fruit and crops in Herefordshire.
Charlie also has a keen eye for rugby and can be found coaching his son Johnnie’s team on a Sunday afternoon.
Favourite Drink: Penrhos Breakfast Martini.

When Sally’s husband Dickie introduced the idea of a gin distillery on the farm, she was initially excited due to the thought of gin being on tap! You will find Sally busy in the office sorting invoices, sending out orders or riding her horses on the weekend.

Similar to Sally, Kate was very pleased at the idea of her very own gin distillery. After many years as a Podiatrist kate has taken control of sales and marketing at Penrhos, out on the road visiting customers.
When kate isn’t busy selling or delivering gin she can be found walking with her bouncy dog rolo or cheering on the horses at the races.
Favourite Drink: Penrhos London Dry, Light Indian Tonic and frozen blueberries.

After finishing a degree in teaching and travelling around Asia and Australia Harriet thought she would help her mum and dad (Dickie & sally) promote the gin, two years later she is still helping and loving every minute. Harriet can be found in the distillery or out on the road visiting our amazing existing customers or creating new ones.
Like kate, harriet can be found walking with her bounchy cockerpoo Bertie or out support customers with a few G&T’s.

Favourite drink: Big bowl of cold water.
Bertie is our fluffy and crazy cockerpoo, who kept us all entertained during lockdown. His favourite job is sleeping under Harriet’s desk and greeting everyone when they come to collect their gin, he especially loves lots of fuss.
He loves to walk around the farm and chasing rabbits. He can often be found with Harriet delivering gin and loves a trip in the car.
Favourite drink: Ice cold bowl of water.
