Named for a Guinness World Record holding cow, and made using a whey alcohol base, Bertha’s Revenge Irish Gin is something special.
Taking the idea of field to fork and applying it to gin, lifelong friends, Justin Green and Anthony Jackson, created Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin in the grounds of Ballyvolane House. A definite theme runs through the distillery: Ballyvolane House has a history with dairy farming, the Gaelic translation of its name is “the place of leaping heifers”, and the base spirit is made from whey. Most importantly, their very name “Bertha” is for a Guinness World Record holding cow, who lived to be 49 and birthed 39 calves - a giant in the field to best represent a future giant of gin.
A particularly spicy gin, Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin has strong pine (both coriander and juniper)and sweet citrus on the nose, as well as incredibly aromatic cardamom. The cardamom continues onto the palate and is joined by sweet orange and lemon. Cumin and cloves join for a long, spiced finish.
