We are delighted to announce dates for the ‘BERTHA SESSIONS’ live music and one-course supper event in the barn at Ballyvolane House with the next live gig taking place on Good Friday, 30th March 2018.
Local band ‘MORNING NIGHTCAP’ will perform live in the old stone barn located in the farmyard at Ballyvolane House. The doors open at 7.30pm. A Good Friday Fish Pie (special dietary requirements will be accommodated too) will be served at 8pm and the band will perform live after food.
Irish craft gin is set to go global this year as local brands seek to go head-to-head with the likes of Bombay Sapphire, Hendrick’s and Tanqueray.
A new forecast from the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland (ABFI) suggests that, while last year marked a breakthrough for Irish gin makers, 2018 will see brands such as Bertha’s Revenge, Shortcross, Blackwater No 5, Dingle and Gunpowder really taking on the competition by growing sales significantly in the US, Canadian, British and German markets.
We are delighted to share this festive cocktail recipe created by Cliodhna Prendergast, photographer, chef and food writer for The Sunday Times Irish edition food column. Cheers Cliodhna!
