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 Barry’s Tea Irish Gin 50cl
Barry’s classic blend is carefully selected from the finest tea gardens in India’s Assam Valley, Kenya and Rwanda.
We combine this loose-leaf tea with Sicilian lemons, sweet Spanish oranges, real cinnamon, green cardamom and the plumpest juniper berries from Eastern Europe. The result is a globe spanning, limited-edition gin that at the same time is unmistakably Irish.
I love Barry’s Classic Blend Tea. I have lost count of the amount of it I packed into a battered suitcase to bring back to London when I lived there. It’s not surprising really, as this rich well-rounded tea is blender Denis Daly’s finest achievement. So, when it came to distilling a limited-edition gin, Barry’s classic Blend had to be at the heart of it. Believe it or not, when distilled, tea produces wonderfully spicy notes. We married these with Sicilian lemons, plump green cardamom, angelica root, sweet Spanish oranges and lots of fresh juniper. Then we made ourselves a large pot of Barry’s Classic Blend Tea, and poured it into the finished gin. This gives this spirit a wonderful golden colour. Try our Barr’s Tea Gin with your favourite tonic, lemon and ice.
Blackwater Juniper Cask Gin 50cl
Blackwater Juniper Cask Gin is Ireland’s first aged gin. At Blackwater, they use the same 12 botanicals you’ll find in No.5, but in different quantities. The casks are made just for the company, from Juniper wood they source in Eastern Europe. Each cask holds around 50 litres and they are commissioned them unscorched. During the summer an early prototype of this gin debuted at London’s Junipalooza where it sold out.
Blackwater Small Batch Irish Gin No 5 50cl
Blackwater No 5 Gin is distilled in small batches in a traditional copper pot still called Sally. We make it with love and care in West Waterford from the purest spirit and twelve of the finest botanicals.
Crisp and elegant, it balances the confident juniper notes of a traditional London Dry Gin with bright coriander, warm cinnamon and zesty lemon. At Blackwater Distillery we're all about the taste.
Blackwater Wexford Strawberry Irish Gin 50cl
The strawberries in this gin were grown just outside Enniscorthy in County Wexford, by Susan Kearns. For maximum flavour not only do we distil the strawberries, but before bottling we add even more of them to our gin. This is where the berries lend their summery scent and colour to the spirit. Enjoy this limited edition!
