A gin from Ballyvolane House named after Bertha, a Droimeann cow from Kerry said to have been the oldest in the world when she died aged 48 in 1993. The gin uses whey alcohol from Irish dairies as its base with locally foraged botanicals.
A variation on the classic Whitley Neill Gin recipe, featuring a hearty helping of quince juice at its core. Massive fruit influence, as you might expect. Juicy citrus, with a touch of ripe pear and peach hiding in there too.
Botanicals include angelica root, cassia bark, coriander, orange and lemon peels, liquorice, almond and nettle(!), as well as the almighty juniper berry, D1 is a super premium gin winning two Master Medals.
