GIN MARE – Mare is a Mediterranean gin flavoured with four principal botanicals. Alongside juniper, cardamom and citrus, these different botanicals create a strangely arresting gin: you’ll know when you’ve had a Mare
HENDRICKS – Hendrick’s wondrous botanical signature from the heart of Scotland consists of flowers, roots, fruits and seeds from the world over. No other gin tastes like Hendrick’s because no other gin is made like Hendrick’s
THE LONDON NO. 1 – The London Gin has a variety of traditional botanicals including cinnamon, orange root and angelica alongside less-common ingredients like gardenia and bergamot, which explains its distinct aromas of Earl Grey tea.
BULLDOG – A delicious English gin made with poppy, dragon eye, lotus leaves, citrus, almond, lavender and various other botanicals. This is four times distilled in copper pot stills, and Bulldog had the highest rating ever received by a gin from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. It was also voted a Top 50 spirit!
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE – The selection and balance of Bombay Sapphire’s 10 botanicals is based on a recipe that dates back to 1761. Presented in its distinctive square, blue glass bottle, Bombay Saphire is made from triple distilled neutral grain spirit that is heated and passed through the botanicals in its vaporised state. Add pure water from Lake Vyrnwy and the result is a refreshing, distinctive, clean Gin with an undeniably distinctive taste.
DUBLIN CITY GIN – Part of the new breed of Irish gins. Dublin City Gin offers up all the classic juniper, citrus and spice flavours you would expect along with a subtle hint of rhubarb.
DINGLE GIN -We use, amongst other botanicals, rowan berry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather for a taste of the Kerry landscape. It’s a formula unknown elsewhere and is calculated, amongst other things, to create the sense of place and provenance. The spirit is collected at 70% abv and then cut to 42.5% abv using the purest of water which we draw from our own well, 240 feet below the distillery.
GUNPOWDER IRISH GIN – The Gin that everyone is talking about.
TANQUERAY NO. TEN – The High Class Gin
OLD CARRICK MILL GIN – This Gin hails from the town of Carrickmaccross in Co. Monaghan. There is an old saying from the area which goes ‘ from Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen, there are more rogues than honest men.’ It stems from an incident where a young man was up before the local Magistrate for being drunk . When questioned, the man man claimed that someone had slipped some whiskey into his tea, to which the Judge replied ‘from Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen, there are more rogues than honest men.’ Patrick Kavanagh immortalised the saying in a later poem. This Gin is named after the incident and poem from Kavanagh, who was from Inniskeen, Co. Monaghan.

Black pepper and wild local juniper are infused in the liquid during distillation after which lemon zest, wild local mint and thyme are added to the botanical blend.
