  • Dirty Bertha Martini

    Dirty Bertha Martini

    The Dirty Martini is the perfect tipple for drinkers who prefer savoury over sweet. The addition of olive brine to a classic Dry Martini is what defines a Dirty Martini, however, as some olive brines are oily and can be unpleasant to drink, some mixologists reach for olive bitters instead. This is our preferred option. The saline olives lend lovely umami notes to the cocktail.

    The Dirty Martini has a long and distinguished history and the origins of the Dirty Martini date from 1901, when John E O’Connor served a Martini with muddled olives at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

    Former US president Franklin D Roosevelt was a fan and he used to serve and drink them at the White House.

    Royals stay at Ballyvolane House in 2018

    As London prepares for King Charles III’s coronation on 6th May, as if anyone could ever forget! But one needn’t line up along the Mall to mark the moment in style. Instead, why not flee the madness and escape to one of his favorite hotels around the world?

    Ballyvolane House (our home) and Bertha’s Revenge Gin were featured in Airmail in an article entitled ‘Sleeping Around’ by Katie Bowman about King Charles’ favourite getaways. Although Elvis is king in this house, we do fondly remember his stay at Ballyvolane House in 2018 and we would like to congratulate him on his coronation and wish him every success in his new job!
