THE STORY SO FAR…

William Price, 1800-1893 one of the most radical and innovative thinkers in the Victorian period. He was a Physician, a Druid, a believer in free love, the emancipation of women, democracy for all and became a freeman of Llantrisant – a 600 year old tradition that continues to this day.

William Price refused to accept established conventions and norms in all areas of society and he served as the inspiration for a local group of experienced craft brewers & distillers who were disappointed with the quality and flavour of mass produced Gins.

So with input from mixologists and local foragers they decided to create highly innovative small batch craft gins and the Eccentric Brand was born.

All 5 gins have their own individual characteristics which can be attributed to the use of a range of established and not so well known botanicals. Originally based in Llantrisant the Distillery grew and soon had to move to larger premises.

From their Distillery in Caerphilly the Eccentric team use a combination of traditional distilling methods – from traditional London Dry Gin style to New Western Style Gin – even resting gins in wood Burgundy barrels or using vapour infusion – the results are a range of 5 gins each with their own distinct flavours that appeal to all ages and palates that are so remarkably smooth you can even sip them “naked” (neat) if you wish or just with sparkling mineral water or tonic.

Eccentric Gin let their gins do the talking for them and will continue to produce small batch craft gins with innovative results to be enjoyed by both old and new gin drinkers.

The team have even planted juniper bushes in south wales and plan to harvest and use welsh juniper in Welsh Gins. We hope to move to our distillery in the Vale of Glamorgan where we are growing juniper.
