  • Thin Gin Irish Dry Gin 70cl

    Thin Gin Irish Dry Gin 70cl

    Thin Gin is a fun, fruity and fragrant gin that often appeals to the unconventional and naughty. When Isacc Thin couldn’t find the exquisite gin he’d tasted in Paris during an afternoon assignation with the wife of an Austrian Count, he set about creating his own. Hiding in Ireland from several vengeful husbands Thin conducted his experiments using juniper, coriander, citrus peel and Irish hedgerow fruits. He settled on thirteen; one for every lady he’d kept company with on his cut-short European jaunt.

  • Blackwater Small Batch Irish Gin No 5 50cl

    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.
