We are delighted Ballyvolane House made the cut into ‘The 10 Most Exclusive Wedding Venues in Ireland’ by IrelandBeforeYouDie.
There is an award winning on-site gin distillery. Need we say more? In case that hasn’t convinced you, Ballyvolane House is a private venue on 80 acres in Cork. The vibe here is distinctly vintage chic. They even offer old-timey lawn games for your guests! Originally built in 1728, it was remodeled in Victorian times giving it a classically Italianate look. The owners have international hospitality experience so they bring meticulous five-star hotel quality wedding planning to a party house venue. A fantastic combination. The food is farm to fork pedigree and the on-site accommodation includes luxurious bell-tent glamping. It’s definitely one for the boho-brides. Did we mention they make gin?!
Really looking forward to the Feast - East Cork Food & Drink Festival which runs from 4th to 10th September 2017 in Midleton. Justin is presenting Bertha from 12.15pm to 1pm on Saturday, 9th September at SAGE Restaurant. There is a wonderful line-up of events and characters. Hope to see you there!
We are chuffed to bits that Bertha’s Revenge Sloe Gin is a finalist at the Blas na hEireann Awards 2017. We are looking forward to a night out in Dingle very soon. Dingle has the finest collection of authentic old-school Irish pubs in the world.
‘Bertha’s Revenge’ small batch Irish milk gin is a product that is making its mark in the marketplace, with the catchline ‘from grass to glass.’
The gin business is owned by school friends, Justin Green and Anthony Jackson. Justin and Jenny Green own the well-known Ballyvolane House, near Castlelyons, Co. Cork, along with a farm.
