We’ve been a bit busy recently running around the place. With trade shows in Berlin and London, then on to Dingle for the Irish Food Awards and Dublin for the Irish Whiskey Awards (IWA). We even picked up a couple of gongs en route. In Dingle we won LEO Best company in Waterford, and a gold for Blackwater No.5 at the IWA.

Our Barry gets Gold!

Along with all of that we’ve been we have been taking stock of our brand and looking at how we might expand our range – that all takes time, energy and of course hard cash.

Blackwater No.5 Gin gets a make over. We’ve listened to your feedback and although what’s in the bottle will remain the same, we have given the front a fresh lick of paint. Another reason for doing this was so we can have a family. Aahhh! Yes a family of products that obviously come from the same parents featuring lovely watercolours like this one of Sally by Gary Cook.


So if you’re a collector of drinks bits and bobs, grab a bottle of Blackwater No.5 as on Monday we ship the last bottles under their current branding. It’s all change from mid-November and I will share our new look and new products once we hit press pass.
