Tigh Nora Gin Bar, in the heart of Galway City, has launched its own exclusive gin.
Nora’s Irish Dry Gin’ hit shelves on Friday 5th April 2019, and will be served exclusively in the city centre bar and the adjoining Front Door Pub, both located in Galway’s Latin Quarter.
The new gin is inspired by the bar’s namesake Nora Barnacle, one of Ireland's most famous poets and the wife and inspiration of James Joyce.
Nora’s Gin is a Classic London Dry Gin, floral on the nose and delicate aromatics on the palate. It's a pot distilled gin made using a range of botanicals including juniper, peach, rose petal, and bitter orange peel.
The gin will be soon available as a gift set, complete with a bespoke gin glass. When ordering, the perfect serve is a slice of red grapefruit, sprig of fresh mint and a crack of black pepper in a goblet glass, with a Schweppes 1783 tonic water.
Fiachra McKenna of Tigh Nora said: "We have over 200 different gins on our shelves but creating our own gin really is the icing on the cake for the bar! Our gin has been a labour of love for the past year, we’ve observed so much feedback from regular G&T drinkers, used our own experience of what customers want from a gin and carried out many taste tests to get the recipe just right. The result is a really impressive, premium Irish gin that we think you’ll love just as much as us."
