Our new (very) limited 2019 edition of Ramsey Island Gin was launched at the RSPB AGM on the 26th October 2019 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.
The first project that we have funded from the sales of the gin to date has been to install a UV tap on the Island and part of the Refill Cymru and UK movement. This has meant that the shop on the Island has been able to remove single use plastic water bottles, which they had previously sold to visitors to Ramsey. A very cool and 'tidy' (a Welshism) project!
Ramsey Island is an iconic landmark of St Davids life. The legends that surround it, the wildlife that thrives on it and the waters that beat against it all make up the rich tapestry of this magnificent place.
This unique gin captures clean mint and floral tones that speak loudly of their home, containing botanicals hand foraged from Ramsey - Water Mint from St Justinian’s Well plus Ling & Bell Heather that surrounds it. Expect fresh green island aromas and flavours, cut through with menthe aqua.
In addition to the botanicals from the Island, for the first time, we will be using the actual spring water from the UV tap that we have installed to cut our final product!!!
Try with a bay leaf (be brave!) Clean green flavours await you which will become an herbaceous and audacious serve.
A donation from the sale of each bottle of Ramsey Island Welsh Dry Gin and other products will go towards funding projects on and around Ramsey Island that are essential for the continuation of the imperative work carried out by the RSPB.
You can purchase the Gin & Artwork in person at St Davids Gin & Kitchen in St Davids, Pembrokeshire.
**SADLY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DELIVER OUTSIDE THE UK**
