Ireland v All Blacks
We are still pinching ourselves. We were visting NYC and Chicago last week as we were bringing Bertha’s Revenge Gin state-side. We met up with some old school friends in Chicago and one of them got us tickets to watch Ireland beat the All Blacks for the first time ever at the magnificent stadium Soldier Field in Chicago. It took 111 years but it was worth the wait. It was a fantastic sporting occasion and the huge number of Irish supporters created a wonderful atmosphere. The Chicago Cubs won the baseball World Series on the Thursday of the same week for the first time in 108 years. The good people of Chicago were in jubilant form all weekend and gave us a wonderful welcome. It was also election week in the US. Epic match, epic week. Massive thanks to Natasha for hosting us for the weekend.

This is one of our favourite aperitifs. We have tried dozens of variations in some of the swankiest cocktail bars in London and Dublin and our favourite was in fact the one we had at The Merchant Hotel in Belfast and we follow their recipe.
