Blackwater No 5 Gin

41.5% alc/vol, 50cl

Blackwater No. 5 is a classic London Dry Gin, distilled from the purest spirit, the finest botanicals and soft local water. It balances the confident juniper notes of a traditional London Dry with bright coriander, warm cinnamon and zesty lemon. Blackwater No. 5 is crisp and elegant, great as a G&T, excellent in a cocktail.

We designed Blackwater No. 5 from top to bottom using only the botanicals imported into Ireland by White’s of Waterford during the 19th century. Of the twelve botanicals used, ten are classic while two are rather special and probably unique to Blackwater No.5 Gin. All are locally sourced where possible, or from wherever in the world the finest grade happens to be.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

“Juniper upfront, with a very silky, viscous texture. The start is classic in style, but followed by a pop of intensity with coriander, bright floral notes, and citrus peel. The profile then develops into warm, sweet spice notes that lead onto the finish, which is long, lingering, and dry. This is a great example of how a distiller can achieve a procession of character and varying intensity in their gin.”
