The subtle citrus hit: Aber Falls Orange Marmalade Gin

What better way to enjoy a picnic in the British sunshine, than by sipping on the delicious, award-winning Aber Falls Orange Marmalade Gin. This popular gin has an ABV of 41.3% and gives a delicate balance of sweet and bitter orange flavours. Expect a citrus hit with a warming aftertaste.

 

The tangy treat: Aber Falls Rhubarb & Ginger Gin

For those who love making the most of rhubarb season and prefer a product that is full of warming flavours, the Aber Falls Rhubarb & Ginger Gin will be an ideal choice.

This firm favourite has an ABV of 41.3% and is inspired by the homely, enticing flavours of rhubarb and ginger crumble. The result is a spicy sensation which is complemented by a hit of ginger to finish. This spirit is the perfect pairing for someone who enjoys subtle spices of tart rhubarb, balanced by piney juniper notes.

 

The nostalgic nod to days gone by: Aber Falls Violet Liqueur

Found growing in a distinctive purple blanket along the Menai Strait, the flavour of violet brings back memories of your favourite childhood sweets, with a unique floral taste and aroma to wake the senses.

The nostalgic liqueur has an ABV of 20.8% and provides a light, delicate taste, sweet violet notes and a perfumed finish to contrast the palate.

 

The indulgent dessert: Salted Toffee Liqueur

 In collaboration with Halen Môn PDO, we have developed a liqueur which combines a rich, smooth toffee flavour with the clean, intense notes of Anglesey Sea Salt.

The liqueur has an ABV of 20.8% and is the tasty liquid dessert for your picnic.

 

Post-picnic treat: Coffee & Dark Chocolate Liqueur

Inspired by the popular Espresso Martini, this liqueur perfectly balances the roasted, aromatic coffee flavour with the bitter-sweet hints of dark chocolate.

The tasty liqueur has an ABV of 20.8% and is perfect on its own or over ice at your summertime picnic.
