The Dyfi Distillery in Corris has been named as a finalist in not one, but two business awards in the last few days.


Last week, brothers Pete and Danny Cameron who set up the distillery in 2016, were told that they were a finalist in the Rural Business Awards, which recognizes companies across the UK who champion working in a rural location.

This week, the news arrived that the distillery was also a finalist in the Wales Start Up Awards, which celebrates successful businesses in their first three years of trading.

“It was great to receive two pieces of wonderful news in such close succession” commented Danny.

The Dyfi Distillery specializes is making very small batch artisan gins from its premises at the Corris Craft Centre which is home to 9 specialist craft and food studios which open to visitors every day until the end of October.

In 2017, their Pollination Gin won the title of Best Gin at the Great British Food Awards, while their barrel-aged Hibernation Gin was named the Best New Gin by The Independent in the same year. Shortly after opening in 2016, the business won the Harpers Global Design Award for spirits against worldwide competition.

“We’re a tiny family distillery, but everything is done with a passion for quality” added Pete.

As well as selling their award-winning gins from their cellar door shop and website, Dyfi gins are sold by Fortnum & Mason and Selfridges, and offered by many Michelin-starred restaurants across the UK, in addition to local hostelries closer to home.
