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.

Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
