Bertha for Ukraine
We are deeply saddened and upset by the horrors visited upon the people of Ukraine by the Putin regime and we would like to help. For every ‘Bertha for Ukraine’ gift box sold, we will donate €10.00* to the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
Containing a 225g jar of Bertha orange marmalade made for us by the good people at Crossogue Preserves, Tipperary to accompany breakfast, and a 70cl bottle of Bertha’s Revenge Milk Gin to crack into (a little) later in the day. Presented in our distinctive Bertha branded sliding wooden gift box with the Ukrainian flag hand-painted on the lid.
- Our lovely customers will donate €5.00 through a higher ticket price for the ‘Gin & Marmalade’ set, and we will donate €5.00 from the back end.
