About Us – Short Version:

Celtic Country Wines is a family owned business handcrafting fruit wines and liqueurs in West Wales for over 30 years under the brand Celteg. Celtic Country Wines have won Great Taste Awards and numerous other accolades over the years. They can also boast that their wines and liqueurs are made naturally without animal-derived clearing methods, making virtually all of their products vegan-friendly (the exception being mead, which is of course made with honey – sorry bees!)

About Us – Long Version:

Celtic Country Wines Limited was founded by Neal Shipp, a wine enthusiast with a lifetime passion for homemade fruit wine. Starting with small batches produced in the family small holding, the company expanded with new premises, extra staff including in front of house, production, admin and marketing all alongside members of Neal’s family who are now working full time within the company.

The company is located in Henllan (Ceredigion) and features a visitor shop, bistro and production facilities. The company is also making strides online as our award-winning products are regularly featured in ‘Best of’ lists and articles along with being showcased on TV shows such as the BBC’s Great British Menu.

As the company developed, the family decided to bring its traditional products into the 21st century with a more professional look. The Celteg brand was born, combining award-winning and traditional country products with a modern, professional image. This gives Celteg its unique selling point and popularity.

Another brand we’ve incorperated into our product range within the last few years has been Old Grumpy’s – an affectionate family tribute to Neal. Our Old Grumpy’s products are steeped in tradition, designed to bring back the products of yesteryear to our kitchen tables. These include our famous Piccalilli, Blackcurrant & Elderberry Wine and Scrumpy Cider.

“Customer service is second to none! Helped me with a fathers day gift and tweaked it to suit and sent out very quickly for me to receive the next day! Beautifully packaged throughout and the products are divine as I was allowed to share some but not all as he wanted them all to himself ? I’m a very happy customer and will be back for more. 5*****”
