From the Distillery

Blacks
Irish
Gin

Blacks Irish Gin is smooth and can be enjoyed neat, or on the rocks with a wedge of pink grapefruit, which compliments the fresh pink grapefruit peel used in our distillation.

The Inspiration

The picturesque & rugged Wild Atlantic Way is home to our Distillery in Kinsale, and where we blend our small batch Irish Gin.  It is also Ireland’s most scenic route to explore, which starts or ends in Kinsale, depending on your chosen path. We believe that the same can be said for Irish Gin – it starts and ends with Blacks.

Taking inspiration from our roots, we have created a modern Irish Gin boasting a unique citrus & spice fusion, with a Wild Atlantic twist. Featuring thirteen carefully selected botanicals, freshly cut citrus peels, hand cracked juniper berries & vapor infused Irish heather flowers, picked locally along on the Wild Atlantic Way.

The inclusion of both orris & angelica roots bring an earthy body to this Gin. Overall our Gin is clean, crisp & complex, yet balanced. You will enjoy an aromatic taste adventure with a mellow finish.

Its distinct flavour can also enhance any cocktail, so if it’s a classic G&T you are craving mix it the Blacks method. That’s one part Blacks Irish Gin over ice, to three parts premium tonic, and garnished with a wedge of pink grapefruit.

Whatever your preferred serve, enjoy it with care and love, as we did when creating it.
