- Orange and Lemon peel for a nose of citrus
- Very well behaved Liquorice (You need to ask)

About the Distiller
Lloyd was a mechanical engineer before he became a gin-maker. He spent his life managing commercial heating systems and North Sea oil pipelines. Aged 40, he fancied moving into renewable energy, and went back to university to get a Masters Degree in Science.
Then one night he went to a New Year’s Eve party in a remote Herefordshire pub…
As 2011 became 2012 he met the then-new landlord, Glyn Bufton. They struck up a friendship. And eventually Lloyd moved to Herefordshire, with his wife and two children, and went into business with Glyn.
Lloyd designed and made the two small stills at Black Mountains Botanicals, and named them after his favourite mountains: Twmpa and Blorenge. Building the distillery was just like building an oil rig, only a touch easier.
He also runs a smallholding, with sheep, pigs, hens and bees, which is not easy to do on an oil rig.
