Blackwater No.5 Juniper Cask Gin - 50cl - 46% ABV
Established in early 2015 by Peter Mulryan, Blackwater Distillery is one of the first in a new wave of craft distilleries opening in Ireland. He set the bar high too, as the gins are mightily impressive. Blackwater Gin is made in West Waterford, where the landscape is scenic - no dramatic cliffs, valleys or bustling city centers. The expanse of rolling farmland, mild climate and rich soil is known as the Blackwater Valley. It also rains. Often. You’ve been warned if you visit the distillery...! Almost everything eventually flows into “An Abhainn Mhór” (The Big River), nowadays known as The Blackwater.
Blackwater Juniper Cask Gin -
There's a lot of piney oak on the nose of Blackwater's Juniper Cask. It also has a sappy, citrus-leaning juniper to taste with a strong spiced note to boot. The resinous cask is once again pronounced on the finish. Blackwater Juniper Cask is an ideal gin for those who like a Gin Buck (Gin and Ginger Ale), where both accentuate each other - or who are looking to take their Negroni game to the next level.
