as the season of giving approaches here are five of our favourite Welsh flavours – perfect for giving, tasting and sharing!

One of the most prestigious craft producers in the UK, the Dyfi Distillery, has just released its first new gin for two years. Navigation Gin, bottled at 57% alcohol, which is traditionally the strength at which the Navy could test that their barrels hadn’t been tampered with! Navigation Gin is an alliance between seafaring tradition and maritime botany, brought together through the medium of umami. Strong and delicious…

This duo of Halen Môn Sea Salt in pretty seaside coloured branded ceramic jars come filled with their award-winning flakes. It’s been served at the London Olympics, political summits and royal weddings – enjoyed around the world by chefs, food lovers and even Barack Obama!  

The perfect gift set for the spiced rum lover in your life, or simply keep it all to yourself! Their gift sets include Barti Spiced with a lovely little tin cup perfect for a cheeky hot toddy or for taking with you when you’re out and about exploring – it’s always the right time for a glass of Barti Spiced!

Pure Snowdonia Shiitake, professionally dried by Ardd Fadarch/The Mushroom Garden – who grow organic mushrooms in the heart of Snowdonia. Wonderful in cassoulets & soups and you can use the liquor left from soaking for some wonderfully inspired Asian cooking – use it like soy sauce to add salty umami flavour.

When we were researching for a new bean we opened a bag of Espresso Beans roasted by Teifi Coffee and were bowled over by the rich chocolate flavours they have roasted to perfection. There was no going back, we now serve it at all our sites!. They also do a subscription service for domestic customers – for £6.99 a month it’s the gift that keeps on giving (they also donate 50p per kilo sold to charity). We love the way they do business ❤️
