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?

the story of the producer

Blackwater Distillery

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
