Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

ABER Falls Whisky Whisk Dis­tillery has just made his­tory, by pro­duc­ing the first gin ever to be dis­tilled at the top of Snow­don.

Set to ‘peak’ in­ter­est with gin con­nois­seurs, the one-off spirit will be auc­tioned off for char­ity.

The Aber Falls team from Aber­gy­wn­gr­egyn rose to the chal­lenge to be­come the first to dis­till gin at 1,085 me­tres above sea level. They even hand-picked botan­i­cals from the moun­tain on their hike to the top, to cre­ate a com­pletely unique spirit.

With only one bot­tle ever to be prod pro­duced, ced the aptly aptl named ‘Sum­mit Gin: Moun­taineers Cut’ was dis­tilled us­ing a one-litre tra­di­tional cop­per pot still.

After a two-hour dis­til­la­tion, Aber Falls MD James Wright, pre­sented Wales Air Am­bu­lance with the UK’s most ex­clu­sive gin. The money raised from its auc­tion will go to the char­ity.

The ac­tiv­ity was made pos­si­ble thanks to a lo­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Aber Falls Whisky Dis­tillery and Snow­don Moun­tain Rail­way
