West Wales spirits brand launches Cardi Bay Vodka at Royal Welsh Show

Eccentric Spirits, distilled at award-winning Ceredigion distillery, In The Welsh Wind, has launched its first Welsh vodka product,  Cardi Bay Vodka.

From the label to the tasting notes, this Welsh flavoured vodka is inspired by the gorse which grows along the Ceredigion coastline, with a flavour profile infused with hints of coconut and vanilla.

Cardi Bay Vodka was launched at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show recently and received hugely positive feedback from showgoers.

Ellen Wakelam, co-founder and director of In The Welsh Wind Distillery which makes the Eccentric Spirit range, said: “After releasing our Black Batch Rum into our Eccentric Spirits range, we knew that we wanted to launch different spirits within the range, including a flavoured vodka.

“We wanted the vodka’s botanical profile to celebrate Cardigan Bay and, as we began to reminisce on our 1,000-mile walk around Wales, we were inspired by the gorse which stands sentinel along the Ceredigion coastline.

“The aroma of gorse is full of vanilla and coconut, making it the perfect inspiration for Cardi Bay Vodka’s flavour and label design.

“From the initial distillations and tasting sessions to approving the label design, this project has been a long time in the making. We are thrilled to be launching Cardi Bay Vodka and are also over the moon with the positive feedback gathered so far!”

Cardi Bay Vodka can be purchased through the Eccentric Spirits and In The Welsh Wind websites and at the distillery, based in Tan-y-Groes and Bar 45 in Cardigan which are also open as bottle shops.
