Dà Mhìle Seaweed Gin
42% ABV. Organic Seaweed Gin
Launched on the 1st of March 2014 (St David's Day) our Seaweed Gin is made with a hand selected variant of botanicals added to our small batch gin. Designed to complement seafood it is infused with handpicked seaweed from the Celtic coast for three weeks, giving it a lovely light green hue before being triple filtered and bottled.

"The botanicals of Da Mhile gin marry very well with foods, as an alternative to more usual suspects or in their own right. I am particularly pleased with using it for Welsh fish and shellfish recipes, it gives a different and delicious flavour, unique to Wales.
We have also done a gin and tomato soup, Welsh mussels with leeks and Da Mhile gin, peppered duck with the gin instead of brandy, a Da Mhile gin and tonic granita. A gin, lime and tomato salsa for seared salmon/sewin, and more in the pipeline."

"A lovely flavoured Gin which really encompasses the local flavours of West Wales, fantastic to see an innovative and organic product being produced in this part of Wales and I wish it every success."
- Jonathan Williams, The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company
"I love a G&T. In a market place that’s now offering a complex selection of flavours to create a new line’s, and something for all tastes, the selection of Gins available is immense. It has to be said that some succeed more than others, but creating any new brand needs good research and development, and you can guarantee that has taken place in this case. John Savage has enjoyed much success with his Cheese Making over the years, but people will not be aware that he is also a proven distiller, having worked with many in Scotland perfecting some top end Whiskeys, this expertise has been passed on to his sons, and they are now striving to create a Gin which will accompany fish and seafood, this seaweed Gin has very individual characteristics, and can be used in cooking and also served as an Iced shot with Menai Oysters and Mussels, and Penclawdd Cockles, if you really want to splash the cash, it will also compliment a few grams of Caviar! But we don’t produce this in Wales – Yet!"
