In all, 13 botanicals are distilled to produce this gin, the largest of these being strawberry, as you might expect. The berries are grown just for Blackwater just outside Enniscorthy (Co.Wexford) and transported to the distillery in a large cool box. After distillation, we soak even more strawberries in our gin (that’s how it gets its colour) then it gets bottled. They don’t add any sugar or sweetener of any sort.
The strawberries are prominent on the nose, giving the gin a sweet aroma, but juniper is softly present in the background. To taste, citrus, then strawberries, then juniper and other spice emerge.
