Welsh micro distillery showcased at Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Washington DC

Gin from one of the most celebrated craft producers in the UK, The Dyfi Distillery in Mid Wales, was selected to be served at the Queen’s official Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Washington DC last week.

Dyfi Gin was enjoyed by senior dignitaries and other specially invited guests at a garden party held at the British Embassy, shining a spotlight on Wales’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Bartholomew Broadbent, president of Broadbent Selections, who import Dyfi Gin into the USA, said: “It was a real pleasure to introduce people to this world class gin in such a special setting and on such a special occasion. Everyone I spoke to thought the quality was breathtaking.”

Operating from within the Dyfi Valley, The Dyfi Distillery is, unusually for a distillery of its size, frequently open to passing visitors. It is located within the Corris Craft Centre, a hub for thriving independent craft producers, near Machynlleth.
