Not a gin drinker? We’ll change that!
While traveling to Dublin (whey back when travel was an option), a couple of our team members got to experience some of the best gins, and gin-based cocktails on offer. One in particular stayed with them, and they knew they wanted their guest at the bar to have it, That gin was Bertha’s Revenge.
Although neither would consider themselves gin drinkers ‘when in Rome’, or in this case “When in Ireland”, right? Needless to say, if you’re not a gin drinker, or have never tried gin, the team at Pour Bar & Lounge highly recommend coming down to Pour and trying Bertha’s Revenge gin. Available for a limited time only.
Gin made from milk… Who’d have thought?
Most spirits are made from barley or wheat grain spirit, but Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin is different. First, milk from Irish dairies is split into curds and whey. The curds go on to become cheese and yeast is added to the whey to turn it into alcohol, creating a whey spirit.
The whey spirit is then distilled with 18 different botanicals and cut with pure Irish spring water, to create Bertha’s Revenge. The Gin, named after Big Bertha, a legendary cow from County Kerry. Big Bertha was 48 years old when she died, having birthed 39 calves. When the makers of Bertha’s Revenge at Ballyvolane Spirits were trying to think of a name for their Gin, they wanted something distinctive that reflected the pedigree of their product. That, coupled with the whey base of their spirits led them back to the legend of Big Bertha.
As well as juniper, Bertha’s Revenge is made with citrus including bitter and sweet oranges, grapefruit, lemon and lime, and spices including orris root, angelica, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and cumin cumin, as well as coriander, elderflower, and a bunch of other good stuff. The variety of botanicals create a complex Gin which is smooth, warming and gently spiced. The whey base gives the Gin a creamy, dare we say milky texture and slight sweetness.
