Based on a recipe which dates back to 1761, Bombay Sapphire was first introduced in 1987, using 10 botanicals sourced from all over the world including Italian Juniper, Spanish Lemon peel, Chinese Liquorice and Moroccan Coriander to create this distinct and flavourful gin by capturing the flavour of the botanicals from their vapours, a process known commonly as Vapour infusion.
Serving Suggestion: Being such a distinctive flavour Bombay Sapphire goes great quite simply with either fresh Lemon or Lime depending on your preference.
Bombay Sapphire East €5.00
Launched in 2011, like its predecessor Bombay Sapphire East is created through the art of Vapour infusion with the same 10 botanicals plus 2 more, Vietnamese Black peppercorn and Thai Lemongrass which gives this gin a very nice mild spice for those who are not a fan of sweet.
Serving Suggestion: To get a greater spice, we recommend trying with fresh lime and jalapeno peppers.
Star of Bombay €8.00
The newest and most premium of the Bombay family, Star of Bombay was released to the Irish Market in 2015. Master of Botanicals, Ivano Tonutti and his team were instrumental in sourcing new and exotic ingredients that would play with the harmony of the original recipe. The addition of gently dried bergamot orange peel from the Calabria Mountains in Italy and Ambrette seeds from the tropical yellow hibiscus flower of Ecuador lifts the existing botanicals to bring this gin to an entirely new standard. Finally the art vapour infusion once again gives all aromas and flavours the time to reach highest possible quality that Star of Bombay has to offer.
Serving Suggestion: Goes best with an orange twist.
Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin €7.00
When Patrick Rigney was looking for a location to open his distillery he wanted it to be in a place of inspiration surrounded by nature and history in the heart of rural Ireland, he never would have thought that the perfect place was in Drumshanbo Co Leitrim the very same place where his parents first met over 60 years ago. Gunpowder gin combines two methods of copper still and vapour infusion in their distillation process. Locally sourced juniper, meadow sweet, caraway seed and star anise to name a few are added to a medieval copper still which was purposely made for the shed distillery. It is then vapour infused with lemon, lime, grapefruit and gunpowder tea to give a flavour that is bold, bright with a slight spicy freshness. The Shed distillery by Patrick Rigney is the first distillery in Connacht in over 101 years.
Serving Suggestion: For a refreshing combination of bitter and sweet, try gunpowder gin with both grapefruit and lime.
Berthas Revenge €7.00
Made from Milk, yes we said Milk. Berthas Revenge uses whey alcohol as their base spirit. When making cheese from milk it is first separated into curds and whey. The curds go on to become cheese and the whey would have been regarded as a waste product but from whey you can make alcohol and from alcohol you can make gin. Based in Ballyvolane House Co Cork, to honour the memory of Bertha, a Droimeann cow from Sneem in Co Kerry who lived to the age of 48 years old and having bred 39 happy and healthy calves, the team at Ballyvolane House decided to immortalise the world’s oldest cow in spirit, literally. 18 botanicals come together to craft this Irish Milk Gin, some include grapefruit, lemon, elderflower, cumin, cinnamon, sweet woodruff and peppery alexander.
Serving suggestion: Berthas Revenge matches well with a combination of sweet and sour, we recommend fresh lemon and elderflower.

One of the four seasonal gins from Irelands first craft distillery, Glendalough forges all their locally sourced botanicals only 24 hours before distillation. Botanicals include orange, lemon, sweet woodruff, dandelion leaves, black currant leaves, blackberry leaves and water mint. The final product, just like spring is a breath of fresh air. Sweet aromas and flavours with a refreshing long lasting taste on the palate perfectly captivating the season in which it inspires.
Serving suggestion: Being such a sweet and refreshing inspired gin, we discovered that fresh lime and seasonal berries topped off with elderflower tonic works perfectly.
Our most local gin. Dingle gin is produced in batches of only 500 litres at a time. Classed as a London style gin, what makes Dingle so special is its choice of botanicals and the painstaking process of choosing them which include bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather truly giving a taste of the Kerry landscape. This spirit is distilled using water from their own well only 70 metres away from the distillery. Dingle gin is a product which came from a huge amount of research both technical and historical.

Serving suggestion: To get that fresh summery flavour we recommend trying with fresh apple and strawberries.
Thin Gin €6.00
Hailing from Knockanore Co Waterford the story of Thin Gin dates back to when its creator Isaac Thin tasted an exquisite gin in Paris and was unable to source it again. When he started working with Blackwater spirits in Waterford they created Thin Gin which contains, strong citrus notes of orange, lemon and lime along with thyme, elderflower and white cloves, the result is a very juniper influenced sweet and fruity gin that will go down very well with the right mixer.
Serving suggestion: As thin gin is so well balanced we suggest fresh lime and raspberries to bring out all botanicals best.
Blacks of Kinsale Gin €6.20
Originally a craft beer brewery and a damn good one at that, Blacks Brewing based in Kinsale Co Cork launched their gin in March 2016. This spirit is handcrafted with the combination of Angelica and Orris root, coriander and bitter citrus that will linger to the end giving a long dry finish. This gin packed with so much juniper oil, when stirred over ice it will give a distinctive haze that will then bring out its dominating juniper flavour.
Serving suggestion: For that bitter citrus dryness we suggest fresh lime and watermelon.
Blackwater Hedgerow Gin €6.50
Blackwater distilleries’ winter themed gin. A combination of sloes, damsons, blackberries and crab apples are used, macerated and left to infuse over time, the finished product is sweet with a bitter after taste. This is Ireland’s first sloe gin.
Serving suggestion: Make sure to ask about how we use Hedgerow gin in our Blackwater bramble.
Blackwater No 5 €6.00
In Victorian times Whites of Waterford exported herbs, tea and spices to Ireland. Their vessels would import from all over the globe and dock in Cappoquin Co. Waterford, which is less than one kilometre from the distillery used today. Inspired by this, Blackwater No 5 only uses same the botanicals in their gin that were imported to Ireland by Whites of Waterford in the 19th century including bright coriander, warm cinnamon and tangy citrus, the result was a clean, crisp London style dry gin.
Blackwater Juniper Cask €7.80
Being Ireland’s first barrel aged gin, Blackwater Juniper cask contains the same botanicals as its predecessor Blackwater No. 5 but in different quantities. The casks in which the gin is made are purpose built for the company using juniper oak sourced from Eastern Europe which can hold up to 50 litres. After ageing, the gin’s sweeter notes such as liquorice are enhanced which balances with the juniper oaks. This influences the final product as a pale straw yellow in colour. Still a very young gin, when an early draft of Blackwater Juniper Cask was introduced at the Junipalooza gin festival in London, it sold out immediately.
Serving Suggestion: With an enhanced sweetness and spiced undertone, we suggest rosemary and a grapefruit twist
Blackwater Wexford Strawberry €6.50
Using fresh strawberries grown in there neighbouring county of Wexford, the team at Blackwater adds the strawberries during distillation and again before bottling giving the gin a pale pink colour. The final product is sweet fruity, giving the subtle aroma of juniper, strawberry, orange and lemon on the nose and a very a sweet taste completed by coriander and other spices. Not too over powering and of a London dry style.
Serving suggestion; Blackwater distilleries suggest that adding fresh strawberries, basil and cracked black pepper helps bring out the gins flavour best.

Botanicals include; apple mint, chamomile, thistle, hawthorn, lemon balm, meadowsweet, water mint and spearmint. This product has a bitter citrus and minty aroma finalised with floral notes and a spiced persistence.
Serving suggestion: For that citrus and refreshing flavour that the botanist gives to be enhanced further, we recommend trying fresh lime.
Gin Sul €9.00
Named because of its strong connection with Portugal this Hamburg based “gin of the south” came to be when the company’s managing director, Stephen Garbe was traveling in south Portugal.
