Hensol Castle Distillery is a family concern with true family values.

Our M.D. Andy Mallows after many years experience in the spirits business, together with his son Rhys had always dreamed of opening an independent distillery in South Wales, different to other UK distilleries, producing the finest quality gins and spirits. Stephen Leeke, our Chairman and owner of the Vale Resort and Hensol Castle; was always open to new and innovative business ideas saw the potential in their idea and within days, hands were shaken in agreement and a deal was done to convert the vast basement space of Hensol Castle into a distillery, bottling plant, visitor experience and gin school. A great idea combined with a love of gin (and other spirits!), a unique setting and a fab team; here we are.


We are lucky enough to be located in the stunning Hensol Castle which is rich in history and heritage. Dating back to the early 1400s, Hensol Castle has left its mark in history books from its early days to the present time. 


We really love what we do and maintaining strong family values is important to us. We like to believe these same values are shared across our business, with our team and colleagues, our suppliers and of course our visitors and customers.

We want everyone, our team and visitors to have fun and enjoy themselves. We believe our spirits reflect our values as they are created with fun, passion, integrity as well as respect. We just want to produce the tastiest spirits possible, with a commitment to the environment, our customers, visitors and colleagues.


At Hensol Castle Distillery we believe you’re only as good as the team around you. Together we all work to develop and grow a company we all believe in and of course, have fun along the way.
