A COFFEE company is brewing up something special for the milestone anniversary of an icon of Welsh Industry.

Ruthin roasters Owen & Edwards are creating a new blend to honour the 60th birthday of Cynwyd, near Corwen, trailer manufacturer Ifor Williams Trailers on Saturday, September 22.

The special brew will be available for 300 representatives of the company and distributors from around the world, from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand, and will be served appropriately from a coffee bar trailer made by the company.

Richard Catell, who founder Owen & Edwards in Denbigh with wife Rhian, said: "We were delighted and honoured to be asked to create a special anniversary blend for Ifor Williams Trailers who are an iconic Welsh brand name whose on-going success is a real inspiration.

“The birthday brew is based mainly on an organic Fair Trade coffee with some other central American coffee added to give it a bit of body. It is smooth and powerful, quite rich without being bitter.”

The company, Europe’s largest trailer maker, will give the distributors and other VIP guests a taste of Wales with all of the food- and coffee - made using Welsh produce including Chilly Cow ice cream made in the Vale of Clwyd and race’s Welsh Cakes which helped power cycling hero Geraint Thomas to victory in the Tour de France..

The new blend went down a treat with Andrew Reece-Jones, the design engineering manager at Ifor Williams Trailers, after tasting it for the first time.

Mr Reece-Jones said: “We are celebrating a momentous milestone in the history of Ifor Williams Trailers.

“We’re grateful to Owen & Edwards for creating the new anniversary coffee to help make the occasion even more special."
