Our expert distiller Alex from In the Welsh Wind Distillery accompanied us on an approved foraging expedition to Ramsey in October. The trip created far more than just the flavour of Ramsey Island Gin. While there we met up with the RSPB Warden, Greg, who is a fountain of knowledge about the island. His stories about the history of the Island and its wildlife are captivating.

Put simply, STDAVIDS.WALES is the Ethical Welsh Online Marketplace, through which Welsh producers can sell their, well, produce! From beautifully hand knitted scarves to a day's coasteering, and everything in between, it allows customers to shop locally, online. Think wandering down a bustling high street full of Welsh independent sellers, online!   So what's different about STDAVIDS.WALES?
