The Gower Gin Company (Gŵyr) is an award-winning Welsh gin distillery owned and run by Siân and Andrew Brooks.
After a long career in Management Consultancy, Andrew is now a full-time distiller. He is passionate about foraging, distilling and creating new recipes and they have created a micro distillery is in a converted bike shed in the village of Port Eynon on the Gower.
Siân is now involved in the gin business full-time after a career lecturing and teaching French and Spanish.
We are very conscious of building a very deep partnership and ensuring the gin is the distiller's gin as much as ours. True to form, the name 'Night Star', the decision on 53% ABV, the distillation date were all decided by Siân and Andrew. After just four samples provided to us (where we basically asked for more juniper!), the recipe was perfected and we waited until 13 April to distill it.
The gin is now available either via:
