Cork based distillers of a small batch Irish Milk Gin, Bertha's Revenge. The gin is distilled on the Ballyvolane House estate where a field to fork philosophy is at the heart of their culinary enterprise.
They are the first distillery to produce small batch Irish milk gin from whey alcohol. Bertha, a legendary Droimeann cow from Sneem, Co. Kerry, died in 1993. At 48 years of age she became the worlds oldest cow, having given birth to an eye-bulging 39 calves over her lifetime. To immortalise her memory, they have brought her back in spirit - literally!
Using whey alcohol from Irish dairy farmers, their own natural spring water and incorporating an interesting mix of locally foraged and grown botanicals, they have hand-crafted a gin reflecting Bertha in her prime. A fragrant nose, soft mouth feel and warming spicy middle notes to mirror her maternal core. And a long, confident fruit-driven finish to celebrate her longevity.
The distillery is based on the Ballyvolane estate which includes Ballyvolane House, a historic Irish county house of extraordinary warmth, style and comfort that provides luxury accommodation and salmon fishing on the river Blackwater, located in the North Cork countryside.
