Small Batch Irish Milk Description ...
The Irish Milk Gin is an Artisan Gin distilled at Ballyvolane House, located alongside the Blackwater River in Fermoy, County Cork. The Grass to Glass Distillery, uses whey ethanol made from milk, as a base to their unique Small Batch Gin. The Whey Spirit distilled only 30 minutes away, is combined with a list of botanicals and left to macerate for a period of time, followed by a slow distillation in their 125 litre Copper Pot Still. The distillate is then cut using local spring water and bottled, producing only 100 bottles per distillation.
The Ballyvolane House Spirit Company Tasting Note ...
Nose - "Jaunty juniper leads, followed quickly by the spicy and warming notes of cardamom, cumin and sweet citrus. The complexity of Bertha is evident and enthralling. She demands to be tasted."
Palate - "Our whey alcohol base comes to the fore on the palate. Like a conductor of an orchestra, she holds and releases the different notes to maximum effect. Effortlessly smooth from the start, sweet orange, coriander and peppery Alexanders are joined in a warming motherly caress of cumin, clove and cardamom. The generous nature of the spirit washes over the palate, finishing in a gentle spice-tinted heat that delivers a considered murmur of approval from your taste buds."
