NewsGeneral news from Bertha’s byre and the Ginsmiths within.
Bertha’s Revenge has been a deserved success for Justin Green of Ballyvolane House and his business partner, Anthony Jackson. The punchy cumin and juniper flavours make a perfect G&T and an excellent Gimlet or Tom Colilns. This brand new Navy Strength version might be even better.
We are chuffed to bits that Bertha’s Revenge Gin and Sloe Bertha both won Silver at the World Gin Awards 2021. We are delighted, thank you!
We are delighted to introduce you to a new nautical member of our little herd - Bertha’s Revenge Navy Strength Gin. We have raised the ABV to a lip-pursing 57.1%, and have shuffled the botanical blend slightly to accentuate one or two of the more pronounced flavour notes. The extra strength gives our merry crew of spices a megaphone through which to convey their message, which is as smooth and as well-balanced as you would expect from a cow riding at anchor.

Lovely piece about how we diversified Bertha’s Revenge ‘Herd Immunity’ Hand Sanitiser by Rebecca Laffin writing for Cork Beo last week. Thank you so much Rebecca!

We are acutely aware that businesses across this little island have been deeply, and in some cases devastatingly, affected by the fallout from the Covid pandemic.
When the market for gin was rather quiet in recent months, we were fortunate enough, like many other distilleries, to be able to diversify into the production of hand sanitiser. Working to World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended guidelines, we have created a liquid sanitiser that at 80% ABV is fully effective, and also smells rather good having a small percentage of gin as a constituent ingredient!
Bertha’s Revenge ‘Herd Immunity’ Hand Sanitiser is approved by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
In the short to medium term the health and reassurance of staff and customers will be paramount, and regular and visible use of an effective sanitiser is going to be a feature of operational policy.
It is suitable for all atomiser and spray delivery systems, be they hand held, wall-mounted or free-standing static units.
We are delighted that Bertha’s Revenge Sloe Gin was awarded a Bronze by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London in early August. The IWSC is the world’s largest and most influential spirits awards.
Thank you very much!
We have just commissioned a series of ‘How to Make a Great Bertha Cocktail’ series showcasing our Dry Martini Cocktail, Gimlet, Rhubarb Martini, Negroni and Hedgerow Martini.
The stunning illusrations are by Ciara Coogan of Cicoillustrates.
We are following the World Health Organisation guidelines and we have produced a liquid hand sanitiser and disinfectant that is highly effective and carries an alcohol content of between 75% to 80%. It’s quick drying and is ideal for refillable spray bottles.
We will be making our sanitiser available to the public and to people in need in our community. Hand sanitiser plays a vital role is reducing and slowing the infection rates of Covid-19.
Please contact us on 025 36349 or email email@example.com if you need supply.
We can supply in bulk too if you are looking for large volumes of hand sanitiser.
Keep safe and keep healthy!
