We’re rarely disappointed by the excellent range of craft gins now available, and in this regard, we’re increasingly partial to the elegant elixers supplied by Waterford based Blackwater Distillery. Their range has expanded significantly since they first began distilling in 2014, a factor which has led to the development of the Blackwater Tasters Club, and the launch of their latest venture, Blackwater Tasters.
Offering an opportunity to sample a selection of the delicious and varying flavours they now produce, the first Blackwater Tasters box of 2021 contains two brand new, limited-edition spirits: a bold Blood Orange Gin with juicy blood oranges up front, harmonised with hints of bitter orange and sweet orange. A post distillation infusion of blood orange slices gives a bare hint of natural colour and a vibrant fresh orange palate.
This box comes with a Valentine’s Day theme, and also includes an introduction to Love Potion No 5. The first of its kind, this is a bitter-sweet spirit containing pomegranate, finest grade saffron, five different kinds of peppercorns, pink roses, fresh citrus peel and cardamon.
A single Blackwater Tasting Club box is priced at €39.99. Membership subscriptions are available for 6 and 12 months. Subscribe for 6 months and get 3 boxes for €105, or save 23% with a 12 month membership featuring 6 boxes for €185.
The first limited edition Blackwater Taster is available now here.
Closing date to sign up for the February release is 9th February.
