Nose Three shades of apple. Dry and yeasty stewed apple warmth, sour green apple gummies, and the leafier tang of green apples themselves. Beneath that, sap, cut grass, and orange cream soda which, after a little honey cuts the grasses with the creams, turns to actual orange peel. Leafier with water.
Palate Apple pie in a glass. Soft cinnamon, rich applesauce, a light zesty tang as if those apples were unripe, a slight trace of citrus peel and enough mouth-watering juice to bind the sauces to the fruits.
Finish Sandalwood edges round the lingering sauce. Dusty, dry, and even a little yeasty although the sweet green apple tang from the nose still sidles past the finish. One for the grey days.
Colour Gold Mellow Yellow
Nose Intense tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, lemon and orange peel with a touch on cinnamon and ginger.
Palate Smooth and oily textured. Even at the full 46% it is soft and easy to drink. Flavours of fresh pineapple, lemon, oranges, marmalade and ginger snap with some honey and oak.
Finish Becomes more malty and biscuity with the oak flavours also shining through.
Colour Bright gold in colour.
On the nose it shows an excellent bouquet with a characteristic nutty character and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, all exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing. Rich, softly sweet and smooth on the palate. Perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish.
The Penderyn Peated in this bottle has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-peated Scotch whisky casks to bring out its appealing character.
At a generous 46% ABV, it introduces itself with sweet, aromatic smoke. Under this there are signature notes of vanilla, green apple and refreshing citrus. An array of gentle flavours tempts even the most sophisticated palate, while smoke and vanilla linger on the attractive medium length finish
At a generous 46% ABV, it has a classic freshness with aromas of cream toffee, rich fruit and raisins. The palate is crisp and finely rounded, with the sweetness to balance an appetising dryness. Notes of tropical fruit, raisins and vanilla persist in the finish.
Winner of a Gold Award at the International Spirits Challenge 2017. Our Master Distiller, the late great Dr Jim Swan, would have been proud. He created this super premium Vodka with a distinct smoothness and a modern twist.
Five times distilled for purity but with an increased amount of barley spirit from the Penderyn still to create a smoothness and complexity expected by connoisseurs, the new FIVE Vodka has a smooth, fruity twist. With its contemporary matte black finish and uncomplicated branding, FIVE Vodka looks truly stylish and elegant.
On the nose it shows complex nutty aromas combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate, rich mature fruit flavours beautifullly intermingle with a luscious long finish.
All the familiar notes of Manzanilla with green apples, almonds and a salty tang. However this sherry also has citrus notes and a long finish that sets it as a wine of distinct character and quality.
Awarded "Gold Best in Class" in the Worldwide Gin 40% category at the International Wines & Spirits Competition 2011.
Taken neat, Brecon gin is a big traditional juniper gin laced with coriander and revealing hints of spicy cinnamon. Add a mixer and the citrus freshness of oranges and lemons appear with nutmeg, liquorice and angelica in a supporting role. The characteristic flavours go well with tonic, ice and lemon on a warm summer’s day with a refreshing juniper in the lead role, but Brecon’s traditional heritage is equally at home besides a roaring fire on a cold night and will bring back memories of long hot summers past.
