Award-winning Welsh distillery In the Welsh Wind has created a sophisticated cocktail featuring Dewi Sant gin from its Eccentric Spirits range to celebrate St David's Day this year.
The company, which is based neat Cardigan, has collaborated with mixologist Owen Williams to create a range of exciting cocktails using the distillery’s ‘Eccentric spirits’ range.
In this concoction, the full, herbaceous flavours of Dewi Sant are paired with lemon, mint, cucumber and elderflower. This combination makes a delicious and grown up way to toast Wales’ patron saint on March 1.
It’s pretty straightforward to mix up this martini style drink for yourself, too!
