Extracted from Dà Mhìle Distillery
Our mission is to produce only top quality spirits at an honest price. We started distilling in the autumn of 2012 at Glynhynod Farm in Ceredigion but our story starts many years before that.
Way back in 1992 John Savage-Onstwedder, one of the founders of the renowned Teifi Farmhouse Cheese and an organic farmer, commissioned the world famous Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown, Scotland to produce the world’s first organic whisky of the modern era to commemorate the eagerly anticipated new millennium. Dà Mhìle (pronounced da-vee-lay) is Gaelic for 2000.
Springbank made 15 hogsheads (barrels) out of the 11 tonnes of organic barley John delivered to the distillery, of these 15 hogsheads five remain. They celebrated their 23nd birthday in the summer of 2015 and are now highly sought after by collectors.
