Meet the Gin for people who don’t like Gin.

The folks at the Blackwater Distillery, located in County Waterford in Ireland, know that life’s too short for bad Gin, and are firm believers that people who say they don’t like Gin are simply drinking the wrong one. Situated on the banks of the Blackwater River, the distillery takes both its name and its botanical inspiration from the surrounding area. When lifelong spirits enthusiast Peter Mulryan decided to start making Gin in 2014, he delved into the archives to find that in Victorian times, Waterford was a hotbed for companies trading spices, teas and botanicals, all sent up the wide, deep Blackwater River by steamboats.

Mulryan also uncovered a list of long-forgotten botanicals. He distilled each and every one of them, with varying degrees of success! In fact, two were so stand-out that they lie at the heart of Blackwater Gin’s recipe today.

With a real focus on tradition and craftsmanship, the only automated thing you’ll find in the Blackwater Distillery is the coffee grinder. Everything else is done by hand and by eye, meaning that production is relatively slow, but they’d have it no other way.

Blackwater No. 5 Gin is a classic London Dry Gin made with 12 botanicals, each of which was once imported into Waterford via ships on the river. Two of the less common botanicals featured in the Gin are cinnamon quills and myrtle pepper, for a soft, warming, spiced flavor. Balanced by piney juniper and zesty lemon, Blackwater Gin uses the finest botanicals, sourced locally where possible, or from wherever in the world the finest grade happens to be.

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.
