Welsh organic gin & liquers: Dà Mhìle, Distillery Llandysul
John Savage-Onstwedder, an organic farmer and one of the founders of the renowned Teifi Farmhouse Cheese commissioned the world’s first organic whisky to be distilled at Springbank distillery in 1992.
Since then, the brand has expanded and moved onto its own premises in West Wales where they are now making Da Mhile botanical farmhouse gin and Da Mhile orange 33 organic orange liqueur.
In 2010 John applied for a ‘distiller’s licence’ to run a 350 litre state-of-the-art copper pot-still. A few months later HMRC issued John with a distiller’s licence. It took another three years to jump through all the other obstacles to acquire all the licences needed to actually start distilling.
Dà Mhìle started distilling in the autumn of 2012 at Glynhynod Farm in Ceredigion. Their mission statement is not to produce mediocrity but only top quality at an honest price.
First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones opened the distillery. John’s eldest son, John-James, who trained with Kilchoman distillery in Scotland is now at 29 the youngest distillery manager in Britain.
His first product ‘Dà Mhìle Orange 33’, an organic, orange liqueur won a True Taste Award for its first batch!
His second product Dà Mhìle botanical farmhouse gin has been enthusiastically received by gin drinkers.
Visitors are welcome to Glynhynod Farm, to see the distillery and to taste and buy its products.
