THE DISTILLERY

AWARD WINNING SPIRITS

The Coles distillery is set in the beautiful Carmarthenshire country side in the village of Llanddarog, the dark timber clad building is no different to a large garden shed and it nestles between the trees and the lush green grass. As the doors are opened your jaw drops as the cathedral like interior faces you. Set at the far end is a large still with two columns, shining as the sunlight reflects off the stainless steel.

All the spirits from the distillery are made from what is known as "from grain to glass" this means we purchase all the raw ingredients such as molasses for the rum, malted barley for the whisky and wheat for the vodka, this makes us the biggest craft distillery in Wales and the only distillery to make its own neutral spirit for gin distilling

WALES FIRST EVER RUM

Rum made in Wales? yes the idea came while holidaying in the Caribbean, on the island of Jamaica . Marcus one of the distillers said after drinking a few rum cocktails "wouldn't it be good if we could make rum in Wales", so after some research, about what went into making a quality rum and where we could source the main ingredient in rum making MOLASSES. After months of trials to make a smooth drinking rum with plenty of character a recipe was formulated with three simple ingredients,molasses from tropical plantations, yeast imported from the Caribbean and water from Wales
