We have a vacancy for a Distillery Assistant at Ballyvolane House Spirits Company. Join our tiny team and help us make one of Ireland’s most loved gins. The position will be part-time initially and based in the distillery which is located in the farm yard at Ballyvolane House in Co. Cork. The job entails bottling, labelling, packing and quite a lot of heavy-lifting.
We will be holding interviews during the next couple of weeks and please email your CV to email@example.com.
Bertha Sessions is a live-music and supper event held in the rustic dining terrace and barn at Ballyvolane House. We are delighted to welcome Blind Poets, who will be performing at the next ‘BERTHA SESSIONS’ live-music and two-course supper in the barn at Ballyvolane House on Friday 28th February 2020.
Tickets are €35 per person which include entry to the gig and a two-course supper. Needless to say, we are always very happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements and please advise accordingly.
Fine song-writing, gorgeous traditional arrangements, skilful musicianship and five exceptional voices characterise this band. Rooted in folk but unafraid to cross genres, it’s no exaggeration to say Blind Poets are doing something new in Irish music.
Yet another quality article by the Gastrogays. They are showcasing the incredible growth, spread and variety of gin distilleries in Ireland today.
Thanks chaps. In good company too.

We would like to thank all our friends, followers, customers, suppliers, state agencies and colleagues for all the wonderful support we received during 2019. We look forward to sharing Bertha love and expanding into new territories in 2020. We distilled batch #1000 just before Xmas and it has been a fascinating, fun, challenging at times and an enriching gin journey since we launched in 2015.
We would like to raise a glass to you all. Happy happy Xmas!
Best Bertha wishes,
Justin & Antony
Lovely mention for Bertha in Stuff You Should Know podcast ‘All You Ever Wanted to Know About Gin’. Thank you Chuck & Josh.
Distilling batch #1000 today. What a journey!
Thank you everyone! Onwards and upwards.
Sloe Bertha - a warming tipple made by infusing wild and cultivated sloe berries with Bertha’s Revenge Gin. We steep them in Bertha’s Revenge Gin for several months and then add sugar syrup at the end to sweeten. A bit like a good dog, Sloe Bertha is a welcome companion when taking to the great outdoors over the winter. A few sips of Sloe Bertha will renew flagging enthusiasm when cold, wet and watching a match from the sidelines.
Equally, it will serve to gird the loins when facing the final hill of the day. Away from the sporting field, Sloe Bertha is a key ingredient in our Hedgerow Martini. ⌗sipsensibly
Looking to bring joy and to really impress your clients, customers, staff and work colleagues this Xmas? We can help. We can ship cases of Bertha in our lovely gift tubes throughout Ireland. Please contact email us for prices on firstname.lastname@example.org.
