The base of this gin is 100% grain – no additives, adjuncts or agents. They ferment the grain, distill it twice, then infuse the spirit with everything that gives gin its classic botanical characters; juniper, coriander, orange peel, cassia bark, liquorice root and angelica root. But, because they’re brewers, they’ve also given Noble Cut their own twist: Hops. Enigma hops, developed and grown locally, are added to the gin basket to give a mineral complexity you’d expect to find in a fine white wine.
The idea to open a brewery was easy for Richard Adamson and Oscar McMahon. Doing it wasn’t. At the time, few people understood the concept of hand crafted beer so several development applications were rejected. But in 2012 the green light was given for an industrial warehouse space in Newtown. With the help of a few friends, a small brewing kit was purchased and Young Henrys was officially in business.

Young Henry’s were invited to the UK for the 2014 International Real Ale Festival and were incredibly honoured to see this beer pick up the Gold medal, matching it with some big hitters from the home of Best Bitters.
