Bertha's Revenge Irish Milk Gin

Like any good Irish tale, the story behind the wonderful Bertha’s Revenge Gin is a tapestry of good fortune, endeavour and passion. Funnily enough, this gin took about 10 months from conception to birth, not a dissimilar length of time to the average gestation period for a cow!

Bertha Distillery

Bertha, or ‘Big Bertha’ as she was known, was a legendary Droimeann cow from Sneem in Co. Kerry. She was reared locally, and was bought as a calf by a farmer called Jerome O’Leary. When she died on New Year’s Eve 1993, just 3 months shy of her 49th birthday, she had become something of a local celebrity. Over the course of her long-life she had given birth to 39 calves, and this achievement, together with her tremendous age, had earned her an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. This fame was harnessed productively by Mr. O’Leary; Bertha became a regular at local fairs, and lead the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Sneem where she was engaged in raising money for local cancer relief charities.

Tasting Notes

Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin is made using whey alcohol from the local dairy farmers in Cork, together with the distilleries own natural well water and an interesting mix of locally-foraged and grown botanicals, the distillers have hand-crafted a gin that highlights the character of Bertha in her prime.
