Introducing the Cwtch Collins

We’ve just revealed our exclusive cocktail, the Cwtch Collins, here at Hensol Castle Distillery, and we’re currently in the process of trademarking it.

The Cwtch Collins is a delightful concoction created by us at Hensol Castle Distillery. It’s a perfect blend of flavors, crafted with 50ml of our signature Hensol Castle Wild Strawberry & Hibiscus Gin, delivering a fruity and floral essence that’s truly unique. We add 25ml of Candy Floss Monin syrup for a touch of sweetness, perfectly balanced with 25ml of zesty lemon juice. Served in a tall glass with ice and topped with soda, every sip promises a crisp and invigorating experience.

To garnish, we top it off with 2 Luxardo Maraschino cherries, adding a burst of rich flavor, along with a trickle of juice from the cherry jar for a final flourish.

Our award-winning Wild Strawberry and Hibiscus gin takes center stage in the Cwtch Collins, recently honored with the title of Best in Country (Wales) and a prestigious Gold at the World Gin Awards. It’s a gin that’s captured the hearts of enthusiasts globally.

Here at Hensol Castle Distillery, nestled just outside of Cardiff, we’re not just about crafting exquisite spirits. Within the historic 17th-century cellars of Hensol Castle, visitors discover a distillery, a captivating gin school, a unique visitor experience, and a state-of-the-art contract bottling plant. It’s where tradition meets innovation, and where the craft of distillation truly comes to life.

We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce the Cwtch Collins as our exclusive cocktail. Crafted with our award-winning Wild Strawberry & Hibiscus Gin, it’s a true testament to our dedication to innovation and quality. The blend of fruity sweetness from the gin, balanced with the Candy Floss Monin syrup and zesty lemon juice, creates a refreshing and unforgettable taste experience.
