  • Bertha in Rwanda, with Bóthar

    published in News

    Bertha is in Rwanda, with the charity Bóthar

    Ballyvolane House Spirits Company have bought a heifer in calf, named her Bertha in honour of Bertha’s Revenge, their award-winning Irish milk gin, and sent her to rural Rwanda through Irish charity Bóthar to a family in need.

    An in-calf Irish dairy heifer named Bertha recently made the 7,000 km journey from Roscrea to Rwanda, waved off fondly by her proud sponsors, Bertha’s Revenge producers Antony Jackson and Justin Green.

    As part of a combined land and airlift, 20 Bóthar cows departed Roscrea Mart in Co. Tipperary to start their new lives in Rwanda, traveling to Rosslare and on to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, where they were loaded onto a cargo plane for their overnight flight to Kigali.

    Both Antony and Justin are excited about the difference ‘Bertha 2.0’ would be making in the small village of Rwamagana, Eastern Rwanda. “From speaking to CEO Dave Moloney in Bóthar, we know that Bertha will change someone’s life,” said Antony Jackson. “We are delighted to be able to honour our gin’s namesake in this way. Bóthar has been sending cows for the past 27 years and we are thrilled that Bertha’s Revenge can play a part in making a difference to a family who really need our help.”
