Blodwen is a pale golden best bitter with a citrus aroma and a smooth, yet bitter finish.
Built in Porthmadog in 1891 the Blodwen was the first of a fleet of 32 three-masted schooners. Known as the ’Western Ocean Yachts’ these became some of the most famous ships from Porthmadog and were renowned for their speed and handling, as well as their graceful lines.
Blodwen worked in the slate trade from Porthmadog for twenty five years, at one time taking the record for the run from Newfoundland to Greece down to 22 days. In 1916 she was sold to new owners in Newfoundland but was soon lost off Alicante.
