the story of the producer
Blackwater Distillery is Ireland's newest craft distillery in West Waterford, producing Blackwater No5 Gin™.The inspiration Blackwater No.5’s botanicals came from the 19th century archives of White’s of Waterford, who were the country’s largest importers of spices, they also ran a ship yard and their vessels criss-crossed the globe importing tea from China and botanicals from the impossibly romantic ‘Spice Islands’. 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. As Peter Mulryan is a stickler for quality, he insists on first making a vodka which is then used as the base for the gin. Unlike others, they never use straight grain neutral alcohol. Blackwater No. 5 is crisp and elegant, great as a G&T, excellent in a cocktail. It is a gin for those who value quality over quantity, art over commerce and heart over-head
