Dyfi Distillery Wins At Icons Of Gin Awards

March 2023

The Dyfi Distillery in Corris, located near Machynlleth, has continued to achieve more recognition. This time at the global ‘Icons of Gin’ Awards.

The family-owned micro-distillery competed alongside names from around the globe, with producers flying in from as far as Australia and Canada for a glittering event at London’s Waldorf Hotel.

The company was founded and is operated by brothers Pete and Danny Cameron. At the awards, they were both highly commended as Distillery Managers of the Year, achieving overall second place.

As one of only three distilleries shortlisted in more than one category, The Dyfi Distillery also achieved second place Highly Commended as Craft Producer of the Year, having been the only producer in the Northern Hemisphere to be originally shortlisted.

“Achieving this level of recognition on a global scale is very exciting,” said master distiller Pete Cameron, “especially given just how small we are. Our combination of botanical foraging and precision distilling is winning more and more recognition around the world.”

The Dyfi Distillery operates from within the Dyfi UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and is, unusually for a distillery of its size, frequently open to passing visitors. It’s located within the Corris Craft Centre, a hub for thriving independent craft producers.

The Distillery is a member of MWT Cymru, an independent organisation representing around 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Powys, Ceredigion and Southern Snowdonia.

For owners at our Gwernydd Hall Holiday Park, the distillery is just 1 hours’ drive away, and only 20 minutes from Min-y-Don Holiday & Touring Park. For avid gin lovers, the distillery provides a fantastic place for a day out to learn more about the process – and sample some gin!
