Blodau Gin


Introducing Blodau Gin, inspired by our surroundings, developed with our experience and innovative approach.


Introducing Blodau

Gin has long been a staple at 1176.  Using our experience, and combining it with the resources at our fingertips in the castle’s gardens, we present Blodau. 

From the Castle grounds and the margins of our River Teifi comes a confidently contemporary Welsh dry gin. The influence has taken us on the journey to find riverbank orris root, footpath-found borage flowers and lavender from the castle’s very own shrubbery; these three key botanical sit high above the juniper and peels, to be described perfectly as floral

Warm but bright, in the same expression, we have created a gin that sings through Indian tonic water and delivers all three florals in a way that stays on the pallet for just the right amount of time.
