2018- What a year it’s been.

2018- What a year it’s been.

It’s that time of year- the house looks bare when the Christmas decorations come down and only the toffees are left in the Quality Street tin. Who ate all the good ones first? We have spent a lot of time over the Christmas break having a bit of a rest and...
AND THE WINNER IS….

AND THE WINNER IS….

We can hardly believe it, but after only a few months in production, Jin Talog has won a Gold Medal for artwork and bottle design at the prestigious IWSC awards. The IWSC awards attract competition from wines and spirits brands big and small from around the world.  ...
Chicken or Fish or Jin?

Chicken or Fish or Jin?

Chicken or Fish or Jin?   We are quite proud of the airline trolley that we have in a corner of our kitchen.   Friends and neighbours always ask us the same questions: “Is that a real one?” and “Does it move?”   Well, yes on both counts. The wheels and brake pedals...

Jŵrnal- our new discovery

Jŵrnal- our new discovery

We love finding out about new producers and craftspeople all over Wales. Although we are a small country, there is so much going on in the creative and food sectors. There can’t be many country lanes and rutted tracks that we haven’t driven down in search...
A Gin In Sheep’s Clothing?

A Gin In Sheep’s Clothing?

It’s that time of year again- our sheep start to look enormous under their winter wool coats as the weather gets warmer. There’s only one thing for it- call the shearer! In the old days, shearing time was a social occasion as farmers went around the local...
Juniper- The Essential Ingredient

Juniper- The Essential Ingredient

It wouldn’t be gin without the Juniper. Juniper is the botanical that is key to all gins. No matter how many botanicals are used, Juniper has to be the overriding flavour of any gin. These days many gins smother or even disguise the flavour of juniper using a...
