We like to think the Bunch of Grapes is how a great pub should be, a friendly welcoming bar serving award winning ales ciders and bottle beers in front of a roaring log fire with a restaurant attached that also serves award winning food. Using locally sourced seasonal produce with creativity and flair but without pretence.
A pub where you are likely to walk in to beer festival one day with a Welsh choir in full voice and return another to find a Welsh cheese and cider festival in the main bar.
Where you can enjoy a home made pie and mash in the bar with a pint of Welsh ale while cheering on the Welsh rugby and then return with friends to a fine dining meal in the restaurant with wines from around the world the next.
But if you prefer you can just sit in the corner, read your paper, enjoy your beer and be happy you have found us.
As well as cocktails, and gin and tonics done like you’ve never seen them before, here’s our base range of Gins available at our FESTIVAL of GIN this Friday:
Professor Cornelius Ampleforth, England
Bathtub Gin 43.3%
Bold and perfumed, this small scale gin is made only 30-60 bottles at a time. Rich backbone of spirit, earthy botanicals with top notes of orange and cardamom.
Worship Street Whistling Shop, England
Cream Gin 43.8%
Cream gin was popular in the Gin Palaces of the Victorian Era, this is cold infused with fresh cream to leave the spirit perfectly clear.
Few Spirits Distillery, Illinois, USA
Barrel-Aged Gin, 46.5%
Aged in oak barrels to give an increased level of sweetness, complexity and spice. Biscuity palate, quite herbal, with a gingery, berry finish.
From the cognac region, this is infused with the cognac ugni blanc grapes, to leave a gin that doesn’t immediately smell like gin but more grapey. The grapes add a sweetness to the palate that doesn’t overbear the citrus and cardamom notes with a herby grassy finish.
Monkey 47 Dry Gin 47.0%
An incredible 47 botanicals go into this German Gin, that’s fermented to the pretty high level of 47.0% ABV. A woody, piney nose. Suitably complex palate with a heavy finish.
Distillery no. 209, San Fransisco, U.S.A.
No. 209 Gin – 46% ABV
Distilling since 2005 taking the name of a Californian distillery dating back to 1882. Botanicals feature Angelica, Bergamot, Cassia, Juniper and Coriander.
Blackwoods 60 Vintage Dry – 60% ABV
A limited edition 60% vintage dry gin for the true connoisseur with an exceptionally smooth and delicate flavour. Includes botanicals from Shetland including coriander, wild water mint, angelica root strain, sea pink flowers from the cliff tops and meadowsweet flowers.
William Chase Distillery, England
Seville Orange Gin 40%
Unique and delicious distilled from cider apples and slowly infused with botanicals including Herefordshire elderflower, lemon and juniper and Seville Orange Peel.
Gin Mare, Spain
Gin Mare – 42.7%
Produced in a small fishing village on the Costa Dorada in Spain, using only local Mediterranean botanicals, including the not so typical olives, basil, rosemary and thyme.
Penderyn Distillery, Brecon, Wales
Brecon Gin – 43%
Produced by the makers of the award winning Penderyn Whisky, this Welsh gin is a big traditional juniper gin laced with coriander and revealing hints of spicy cinnamon. With a mixer, the citrus freshness of oranges and lemons appear with nutmeg, liquorice and angelica in a supporting role.
Dha Mile, Ceredigion
Organic Botanical Gin – 42.0%
From the world’s first organic distillery, a gin like no other. Nose of subtle fresh rose petals, hint of spice and juniper. Floral palate with fresh notes of dandelion and peppery cloves. Superb botanical mouthfeel ending in a peppermint cool.
Wees Distillery, Amsterdam
Very Old Genever. 40.0%
Made of pure malt wine, distilled as the Amsterdams Oud, but with some different herbs and a different combination of malt wine types. More outspoken than Amsterdams Oud and very smooth because of the longer ageing in oak barrels.
