This unique Irish Brandy offers rich aromas of tangy apples and dried apricots with a peppery spice and background of vanilla and butterscotch.

  • Bertha’s Revenge Small Batch Irish Milk Gin 70cl

    Bertha’s Revenge Small Batch Irish Milk Gin 70cl

    Bertha, a legendary Droimeann cow from Sneem, Co. Kerry died in 1993. At 48 years of age she became the world’s oldest cow, having given birth to an eye-bulging 39 calves over her lifetime. To immortalise her memory, we have brought her back in spirit – literally! Using whey alcohol from Irish dairy farmers, our own natural spring water and incorporating an interesting mix of locally foraged and grown botanicals we 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, fruit-driven finish to celebrate her longevity.

    Ballyvolane literally translates from Gaelic as ‘the place of springing heifers’ – a testament to the fertility and natural diversity of the land on which the estate lies. The much lauded Ballyvolane House practises a field to fork philosophy when it comes to food. The Ballyvolane House Spirits Company is determined to echo this by championing a grass to glass approach for everything we bottle.
