We are delighted to bring you Bertha-lele 2017!
This is part of the Irish Gin & Tonic Fest 2017 which runs from 25 June to 01 July 2017. The Irish Gin & Tonic Fest is a nation-wide celebration of Irish Craft Gin & Tonic with gin-related events taking place in venues up and down the country. Our contribution will be to host Bertha tipples, Ukulele tunes and dinner at Ballyvolane House on Saturday, 01 July 2017.
We are delighted and proud that Bertha won a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017.
The 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition was held at the Hotel Nikko, San Francisco from April 20th through April 23rd. The 2017 Competition was another record-breaking year that featured 2,253 spirit entries from all corners of the world.
This June, Justin’s son Toby (aged 16) and a group of classmates are heading to Armenia for two weeks during their summer holidays with Habitat for Humanity. They will be building houses in some of the most deprived areas of the country which are in urgent need of basis housing. In order for this to happen, he has to raise €2,500. As part of his fundraising effort, we will be hosting a long-table lunch, Bertha tipples and a stroll around the gardens with Jeremy Green (Toby’s grandpa) at Ballyvolane House on Saturday, 13 May 2017.
