Sponsorship

 As a members’ organisation we are dependent on our members both corporate and individual to provide us with support both to maintain and to build our activities.

We price events to cover costs so we rely on other support to assist with the day to day running of the organisation.  Our target, to cover those costs, is c £20,000 per annum which allows us to maintain our activities and over time, to increase the scope of those activities.

Your support is both necessary and appreciated. For more information on corporate sponsorship either for Wales in London or for specific events contact Donae.Lerwill@oxisenergy.com

Musical performance by Athena Trio www.athenatrio.com

The sensational classical trio, Athena, sees sopranos Gwawr Edwards and Ellen Williams, and mezzo-soprano Sioned Terry, come together in harmonious union - three sought after Welsh artists that came together one evening in concert and were encouraged to continue to perform together. Since then, the trio have been busy creating new arrangements, appearing on television and radio, and laying down their arrangements in the recording studio.

Olivia Williams’ book Gin Glorious Gin is a vibrant cultural history of London seen through the prism of its most iconic drink.

The Gower Gin Company was set up by Sian and Andrew Brooks in 2017 and is based in Port Eynon on Gower. As the first AONB in the UK, the Gower is renowned for its fabulous beaches, sea-food, water-sports and mild climate.  The brand is called GWYR and is a blend of eight botanicals including the fresh zest of lemon and pink grapefruit coupled with foraged bronze and green fennel; which grows wild on the Gower Coast. GWYR is made in the London Dry style at 43% for a smooth, creamy finish. Their distinctive striped design links a deep marine blue with highlighted and embossed copper; an industry for which Swansea was famous in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Launched last October Gower Gin has grown dramatically with literally dozens of stockists throughout Wales, Bristol and London. GWYR Gin has been awarded a Silver Medal in the London Spirits Competition against national and international competition.

Eccentric Gin started in the cellars of a building which has stood in Llantrisant for over 200 years.Their gins are distilled by brewers, mixologists and even a freeman of Llantrisant. They have sourced the best botanicals including a specially imported Croatian Juniper. The also feature the Sacred Celtic Botanical ‘Wild Sunflower’ in each of our gins. This botanical is also known as ‘elfwort’, or ‘marchalan’ in Welsh and imparts a subtle sweetness with an underlying floral bitterness. As barrel masters of many trades, it will come as no surprise that they are using various types of barrels to age different gin styles.

Penderyn: Distilling in Wales was a lost art but in the late 1990s, in a pub in a small post-industrial Welsh valley town, a group of friends drank and chatted about establishing the first whisky distillery in Wales in over a century. They dreamt of creating a whisky as pure and precious as Welsh gold, represented today by Penderyn’s ‘gold seam’.
The friends had a location in the historic village of Penderyn on the southern tip of the Brecon Beacons, chosen because of the site’s own supply of fresh natural spring water.
