Cygnet Spirits Ltd is an independent small business specialising in premium hand crafted Welsh gin and liqueurs, distilled using the purest Welsh water and finest botanicals from around the world.
Cygnet Spirits brand new, purpose built distillery started production of our signature brand Cygnet Dry Gin on St Davids Day 2018, the heritage of our gin dates back over 150 years. The botanical core of the Cygnet Gin recipe, was laid down in the 1850’s by Peter Wakely, a Docksman in the Port of Swansea, and great great Grandfather of our founder and present day Master Distiller, David Wakely. It was on discovering this ancient recipe in a family heirloom book, that gave David the inspiration and basis for reviving this work for a new generation of gin aficionados.
Cygnet distillery is Wales’ first live micro-distillery, based in South Wales, and the only distillery in the centre of Swansea. At the heart is the 300 litre Arnold Holstein copper pot still, which produces the smoothest and purest spirit using traditional London Dry methods.
The Welsh Dry gin and its sister product, Cygnet Pink have achieved drinks industry success - being awarded ‘best in Wales’ at the Gin Guide Awards 2019 & holding Silver and Gold awards in the London Spirits Competition 2020. Part of our secrets to success is our water source, the crystalline waters filtering through the hills and streams of the ancient Cambrian Mountains of Wales.
