Eccentric Gin Company started in the cellars of a building which has stood in Llantrisant for over 200 years.
Our gins are distilled by brewers, mixologists and even a freeman of Llantrisant. Llantrisant’s ancient tradition of the freemen has survived through the mists of time. More than 660 years since the first were enrolled, it remains as significant today as it did in medieval times.
Llantrisant is well known as the home of William Price, an eccentric who legalised cremation, practiced druidism and believed in free-love. The building we began in was owned by Roderick Lewis; a close friend of William Price.
Eccentric Gin have sourced the best botanicals including a specially imported Croatian juniper. We also feature the sacred celtic botanical ‘wild sunflower’ in each of our gins. This botanical is also known as ‘elfwort’, or ‘marchalan’ in Welsh and imparts a subtle sweetness with an underlying floral bitterness.
Madam Geneva: London Dry, 42% ABV. A London Dry as it should be. Simple, dry and Juniper forward with citrus and a hint of liquorice and some subtle floral and sweet characters added by the sacred duo “meadowsweet and wild sunflower”
Limbeck: New Western Style Gin, 45% ABV. A gorgeously heady mix of Blue Ginger and citrus with Tarragon, Seville orange and Orris. Rested in recycled Burgundy French oak casks to develop a smooth texture. The oak casks leave a subtle peach colour, which will vary subtly with each batch. That’s craft!!!
Young Tom Gin: Fresh Juniper Malt Gin, 46% ABV. Fermented from IPA wash and refined to a clean aromatic distillate. Naturally sweetened & vapour infused then rested. A sweet and floral style of gin with fennel, wild sunflower root and star anise seeds. Rested for 6 weeks to develop its flavours.
Eccentric Cardiff Dry Gin: A Unique Dry Gin, 37.5% ABV. A new style of gin chosen by the people of South Wales. Rich herbal notes of rosemary, fennel, sorrel and liquorice, together with citrus notes from the Lemongrass and Verbena. Perhaps the new aperitif gin of the world?
