What’s so special about Blackwater No. 5 Irish Gin?
In dusty archives Blackwater Distillery found a treasure trove of botanicals once popular, but now overlooked. They distilled each and every one of these spices; some weren’t so great but two were spectacular and they lie at the heart of Blackwater No.5 Gin. And that’s why an 1844 map of the Blackwater River can be seen on each and every bottle of their gin.

Blackwater Distillery Juniper Cask Gin 50cl
Juniper berries are what give gin its distinctive flavour. Which got us thinking. What would happen if you aged gin in a cask made from juniper wood?
So we had some juniper barrels made just for us, which wasn’t as easy as it sounds. And as juniper trees aren’t very large, none of our casks hold more than 50 litres which means stocks of this gin are strictly limited. So if you are lucky to come across a bottle of our award winning Juniper Cask Gin, be sure to try it.
We use the same 12 botanicals found in Blackwater No.5, but in a slightly different proportion; we push orange and the sweeter roots because, like its berries, juniper timber is, how shall we put it – a wee bit astringent?
Blackwater Distillery Small Batch Irish Gin No 5 50cl
Blackwater No. 5 is a classic London Dry Gin, distilled from the purest spirit, the finest botanicals and soft local water. It balances the confident juniper notes of a traditional London Dry with bright coriander, warm cinnamon and zesty lemon. Blackwater No. 5 is crisp and elegant, great as a G&T, excellent in a cocktail.
We designed Blackwater No. 5 from top to bottom using only the botanicals imported into Ireland by White’s of Waterford during the 19th century. Of the twelve botanicals used, ten are classic while two are rather special and probably unique to Blackwater No.5 Gin. All are locally sourced where possible, or from wherever in the world the finest grade happens to be.
Blackwater Distillery Wexford Strawberry Irish Gin 50cl
What is more summery than strawberries? Nothing really, except perhaps sun block. We tried distilling that but it tasted disgusting, so we went back to strawberries. In all, thirteen botanicals are distilled to produce this gin, the largest of these being strawberry, as you might expect.
The berries are grown for us just outside Enniscorthy (Co. Wexford) and transported to the distillery in a large cool box. After distillation, we soak even more strawberries in our gin (that’s how it gets its colour), then we bottle it. We don’t add any sugar or sweetener of any sort.
