Description

Blackwater live up to their reputation as mavericks with a penchant for the ridiculous and the wonderful. Junpier is a tiny, tiny, bush like plant. It makes dreadfully difficult to maintain tiny casks. So much so, coopers in Ireland that Blackwater tried to get to make them their casks to them to go away in a very Irish dialect. Blackwater eventually found a madman equally enthusiastic to take the project on, and after some trail and error - Blackwater now have an 8 barrel 'solera' of sorts, producing this weighty, viscous, piney gin that is perforated with a pokey present Mediterranean herbaceous character. Fascinating stuff, that makes a fine Martini - Learn more about Blackwater

About the makers

Blackwater

Peter Mulryan and Kieran Curtin founded Blackwater Distillery back in 2012 when, as Peter is on record saying, "...we hadn't an arse in our trousers". Things have scaled up in the past 6 years and with Peter rated as one of the 20 most influential people in a resurgent Irish Whisky scene. And, yes that's whisky without an e. With the marvellous habit of being a wind up merchant, Blackwater's social media is a mix of news about superb new products the guys are making and the hounding of many a dubiously suspect provenance lauding brand. Conscientious objectors to Whiskey and moralists of an anti-temperance cloth, it's not just whisky and social media that Blackwater are shaking up with awards filling up the cabinets for their various gin incarnations the guys are to moving to a new distillery with two beautifully designed Italian stills now set to be housed in an old almost derelict hardware and furniture shop in Ballyduff, in West Waterford along the banks of their name sake river, Blackwater. Peter has said that a good gin should come in waves, it's safe to say we reckon a good distillery should be half as good as Blackwater at making waves in their various forms.
