On the nose juniper leads, followed quickly by the spicy and warming notes of cardamon, cumin and sweet citrus. In the palate, the whey alcohol base comes to the fore. Sweet orange, coriander and peppery Alexanders are joined in a warming caress of cumin, clove and cardamon. It finishes in a gentle spice-tinted heat.
Bertha’s Revenge Gin
Bertha’s Revenge Gin is an Irish Small Batch Milk Gin using whey alcohol from local dairy farmers in Cork. Together with natural well water and an interesting mix of locally foraged and grown botanicals, Bertha’s Revenge is a hand-crafted gin that highlights the character of Bertha in her prime.
Whey alcohol was chosen for its unique properties and qualities. These were discovered very early on in the development process to carry spice beautifully.
Who is Bertha?
Bertha, or ‘Big Bertha’ as she was known, was a legendary Droimeann cow. Reared locally, she was bought as a calf by a farmer called Jerome O’Leary. She lived to be just 3 months shy of her 49th birthday. By this time she had become something of a local celebrity, giving birth to 39 calves. This had earned her an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. This fame saw 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.
