Glyndwr Vineyard, which claims to be the oldest in Wales having been established in 1979, not only makes still and sparkling wines, but also brandy.

First launched in 2017, the brandy, available in 20cl bottles for £15, and is made from the vineyard’s Seyval Blanc grapes.

The grapes are then fermented and distilled before being aged in oak barrels for four years.

According to the producer, the spirit takes on “rich, peaty and earthy aromas”.

At the time of its launch, Glyndwr Vineyard said it was the first brandy to be made from Welsh-grown grapes.
