Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin

Bertha’s Revenge Gin Bottling Note

A gin from Ballyvolane House named after Bertha, a Droimeann cow from Kerry said to have been the oldest in the world when she died aged 48 in 1993. The gin uses whey alcohol from Irish dairies as its base with locally foraged botanicals.

The concept originates from Ballyvolane being the Gaelic for 'the place of springing heifers' and botanicals include juniper, coriander, bitter orange, grapefruit, sweet orange, lemon, lime, liquorice, orris, angelica, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cumin, almond, elderflower, and sweet woodruff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Almond, hay, dried juniper and orange peel, too. Floral angelica. Cumin spiciness develops.

Palate: Spice arrives first, with plenty of clove and cardamom. Soon becomes creamy and vanilla-y, joined by fresh citrus peels.

Finish: Slightly oily juniper. Lime and liquorice root.

Reviews for Bertha’s Revenge Irish Milk Gin
No whey it’s made from cows milk!?
Tasty gin with a funny back story.
Bertha did not die in vain. Travelled from source and was very well priced. Thoroughly enjoyed this drop with a squeeze of lime.

Best most mellow gin Ive tasted and yet carries hint of spices .
Tasted this for the first time in Thomas Connelly pub on holiday in Sligo .... even better than mother's milk and great for this ageing lady .
Ordered 2 bottles on Amazon to arrive for my return home to Devon .

A fantastic Irish gin!
This is hands down my favourite gin of all time! It not only tastes delicious but has a fantastic story too.

It is an 'Irish Milk Gin' which is highly unusual, named after the oldest cow in the world from County Kerry in Ireland, Bertha.

What I love about this gin are the different ways you can drink it. It is excellent with tonic, with a splash of water, in cocktails or just on its own!

Fabulous gin
I first tried this in a bar in Hokkaido, Japan after a day snowboarding. Loved it then served with cardamon amongst other things. Loved it so much I buy it online and pay all the import taxes to Aus, which virtually doubles the price, why doesn't someone in Aus import this? It has become my favourite winter gin back in Australia, neat. Just delicious!

Just tried this gin in a gin bar in Bath it reminds me of the taste of cream soda for some reason but I absolutely love it with a bit of chilli in the glass gives it a great taste

A lovely gentle gin
Very soft and velvety and an almost almond finish. I loved it! Could even drink it neat. I wish the bottoms I have smelt, smelt of this gin (references to previous reviews).

Try before you buy!
Definitely think this is one to try before you buy! I’m a real gin lover...favourite Irish gin being Boatyard, but really want to try this just wasn’t sure. Thankfully I found it in a local bar and definitely won’t be be purchasing. It was ok but only as a one off. My friend also didn’t enjoy it .
