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!
