2021 marks the O' Neill families 75th year at Fernhill House and to celebrate we have launched our Fernhill Garden Gin.
This is our 75th year here at Fernhill and so we really wanted to mark it with something special to celebrate. We choose to create a gin inspired by our gardens with a unique West Cork flavour that was a superior quality like the service at Fernhill which has been honed for generations. At Fernhill, we wanted to have our own gin to accompany our homemade elderflower cordial, to add to our sorbets, desserts, as part of our drinks receptions or simply just for our guests to enjoy in our bar.
The gin is inspired by our gardens and our gardens reflect the natural beauty of West Cork. To achieve the flavour we used foraged botanicals from the West Cork countryside and flowers from our magnificent gardens. The gin has floral notes, with hints of lavender and citrus. We created our own locally sourced gin glasses and we so look forward to everyone trying our gin.
The bottle design was also influenced by the gardens and Fernhill's standing as a historic country house. The label has striking gold touches and Fernhill's vintage themed branding. The bottle features a design by one of the Georgian periods most celebrated artists, William Morris.
Individual bottles of Fernhill Garden Gin are available from the hotel reception and many local stores, bars and restaurants around West Cork. Or CLICK HERE.
