The natural essence of the Herefordshire Marches is captured at Penrhos Distillery in an exceptional range of premium small-batch spirits. This magical place, a natural border between England and Wales, is steeped in so much history. For generations Richard Williams and Charles Turner have farmed this land and have now captured its natural elements in every sense. Carefully grown and hand-picked ingredients that celebrate provenance and stimulate the senses. Every stage of the process has a purpose and a passion, magically distilled into nature’s own essence.
“Some years ago, a chance conversation led us to pool our resources and knowledge together to grow fruit in the wonderful fields of Herefordshire. With cherry and apple orchards thriving and blueberries and strawberries planted we decided to put our name to a product that is farm-made, hand created and rich in provenance.
For the longest time, we have been gin lovers, the perfect way to unwind after a long day in the fields and one day we just asked ourselves… why not? As lifelong friends, we have always plotted and planned and we realised we had the perfect answer. Our wives Sally and Kate soon realised this was more than a mid-life crisis and joined the team. For two years we researched and tested countless recipes on our one litre Still. We instantly became very popular as we were never short of volunteers to taste our gin! With our recipes complete we purchased a 150-litre copper Still and converted our 250-year-old former cow shed into the distillery. Penrhos Spirits was born and so the adventure begins.”
