About Us

Proudly Unusual

Eccentric gin, from the In the Welsh Wind distillery, on the West Coast of Wales, is a carefully curated range of premium craft gins. Each gin is a reflection of the people, places or ideas that inspired it. We blend carefully chosen botanicals into each bottle of Eccentric welsh gin, hitting you with distinctive, even eccentric, flavour combinations that make you think a little differently about what you are drinking – and how you drink it.

Eccentric Gin was born in Llantrisant not far from Cardiff, home of the freemen of Llantrisant, and in particular, Dr William Price. Dr Price was one of the outstanding freethinkers and radicals of the Victorian era, not just in Wales but in the UK as a whole. His uncompromising approach to life and all its opportunities and challenges inspired a group of dedicated distillers and mixologists to develop a range of Welsh gin that could simply speak for itself, and for Wales. As a result of its success, the distillery relocated to Caerphilly, to bigger premises, and in 2020, moved into the In the Welsh Wind fold of outstanding Welsh gins. 

 

Our maverick distillery is just north of the coastal town of Cardigan, overlooking Cardigan Bay. We are now proud to offer the Eccentric range of gins and spirits, distilling with the same care and attention that is the signature of Eccentric gin. Staying true to the ideals that inspired the original Eccentric team, at In the Welsh Wind we are hugely enthusiastic about boldly championing these singularly Welsh gins. The Eccentric gin range takes the best of Wales, her trailblazers, her heritage, her lack of conformity, her exuberant amalgamation of towns and villages, Welsh and English languages, farmers and industrialists, laid back beach life and solemn academia and creates distinctive gins, smooth enough to be enjoyed without the usual embellishment of tonic or ice should you choose to do so.
