    published in Events

    Ballyvolane House Spirits Company bring Bertha’s Revenge Small Batch Milk Gin to Dublin for a special B&T (Bertha’s & Tonic) tasting at the Irish Whiskey Museum.

    A hand-crafted gin which uses whey alcohol from Irish dairy farmers, the natural spring water from Ballyvolane House and incorporating an interesting mix of 18 locally foraged and grown botanicals, Bertha’s Revenge is designed to celebrate the life of a very special cow. On Thursday July 26th, co-founder Antony Jackson will guide guests through the history of Bertha - a Guinness World Record-holder as the oldest cow ever recorded, passing away just three months short of her 49th birthday – along with tips on how to make the perfect B&T.

  • HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall stay at Ballyvolane House

    published in

    HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall stayed at Ballyvolane House during their official visit to Cork this week. It was a huge privilege having them here and it has been an incredible few days. They are utterly charming. The Prince of Wales presented us with a bottle of Highgrove Organic gin and we gave him a bottle of Bertha’s Revenge Gin. I hope all the road closures and check-points weren’t too much of an inconvenience to all our neighbours. The Garda team handling the security operation were highly impressive and most professional. The Prince’s entourage from Clarence House and all the officials from the British Embassy and the Department of Foreign Affairs were a pleasure to deal with too. Their visit is great for us and the area and it has raised the profile of Cork. Thank you for staying! We really enjoyed having everyone here. It’s been quite a week!

    (Thanks to Dave McClelland Photography for coming down to photograph the event).
