We were very excited recently to hear that our Three Grain Welsh vodka had won Gold and Best in Wales in the Varietal Vodka category at the World Vodka Awards 2023. So it only seemed fitting to share this delicious cocktail created especially for our Three Grain Vodka by our mixologist Owen Williams.

This cocktail went down a storm at the launch of Three Grain Vodka in November and has been a big hit with the team here. Sharp with lemon, aromatic with thyme, delivering a sweet kick from the Welsh malted and distilled barley and rye in the vodka, it's a winner!

Three Grain Vodka also has a secret hidden in its label - you can read more about our collaboration with KWS to tell the 'grain to glass' story of the barley and rye that's included in this Welsh vodka. UK grown (in future it will be Welsh grown) and malted and distilled here in west Wales.

Not only is our Lemon & Thyme Martini delicious, it's incredibly easy to make - using a small number of ingredients that are easily available, a quick shake and you're there

Lemon & Thyme Martini

- 20ml Limoncello
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- 12.5ml Sugar Syrup*
- 1 Thyme Sprig & 1 for Garnish



- Add the Three Grain Vodka, Limoncello, lemon juice and syrup to a shaker. 

- Clap the thyme in your hands to release the aroma, then add the sprig to your shaker, top with ice and shake to chill and combine. 
- Double strain into a coupe/Martini glass and garnish with a Thyme Sprig.
Iechyd da!!

*You can buy sugar syrup online but it's very easy to make your own. There are plenty of recipes on the internet - but basically heat twice as much sugar to water (e.g. 300g sugar to 150ml water) in a small pan till the sugar is all dissolved, then cool the syrup and bottle for use. Keep in the fridge.
