The gin and tonic has been the polo players’ choice of refreshment for over 150 years. British Polo Gin, our spirit sponsors, produce quadruple distilled gin, using only the best organic botanicals to create the most flavoursome and smoothest of gins. Hand made by artisans in a wood-fuelled small batch still and simply crafted with Ceredigion’s finest spring water, this gin is as pure as can be.
