Bringing Your Brand To Life
Whether you already have an established brand, or have a brand idea that you are looking to bring to life, the team at Hensol Castle Distillery can help. We currently produce more than 900 different spirits for over 50 customers large and small. We produce Gin, Vodka, Whisky, Rum, Bourbon, Brandy, Liqueurs, Vermouth, and pretty much anything in between.
The spirits industry is highly regulated by HMRC. Our team have extensive experience of the sector, and offer compliance support both domestically and for export opportunities. Including this, we can offer customers who are new to the industry, advice on how to navigate the various licencing requirements. We currently export to Europe, the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand & India.
New Product Development
Our team of 4 distillers, led by our Master Distiller Dai Wakely, can offer full new product development and recipe construction, to a flavour brief. From blending and compounding, through to contract distillation, we have helped our customers win more than 45 industry awards in national and international spirits completions. We work with a number of designers, and can help our customers bring their idea from concept, through to launched finished product.
Supply Chain & Procurement
Our customers have a wide variety of requirements. We can either offer a full procurement service, where we source all components and provide our customer with a finished product, or, work on the basis that all components are provided to us on a free issue basis or anything in between. We stock a variety of base spirits and made wine to cater for the majority of country and age claims needed.
Consistency is critical to our customers. We provide products that meet the legal and safety standards of the industry, and deliver our customers’ requirements efficiently and consistently. We are SALSA accredited, and work with our customers to produce robust specification documents that we measure production against.
