BEARA OCEAN GIN
March’s remarkable gin has come all the way from the edge of Ireland, Castletownbere on the Beara Peninsula. This month we’re bringing flavours of the sea and the South West of Ireland to you. Beara Ocean Gin is the only gin in Europe distilled using salt water
Distilled by two siblings – John and Eileen Power who wanted to make a gin that was reflective of where they were from, incorporating in some way a marine theme. They spent 2 years researching Botanicals and travelling to other gin producers all over the world. Bringing the sea into their gin using sea water was a lightbulb moment, and only one other distillery in Australia has attempted this. Of course, there are many other botanicals.
A Beara Ocean gin will be just the tonic to wash down Skelligs West Kerry Chocolate, all from the South of Ireland. Sign up today Enjoy a taste of the sea this March.
