This gin is named after the iconic Ha’Penny bridge that was constructed in 1816 as the first pedestrian link to the North and South of Dublin’s fair city. Dubliners could cross this bridge for the price of a ha’penny, the label takes its inspiration from some of the design details found on the Victorian ironwork of Dublin's famous landmark.
Ha'Penny Gin draws its inspiration from Victorian Dublin and the flora found in the walled gardens within Phoe...nix Park. The botanicals include blackberries, lavender, geranium and dendelion flowers as well as traditional juniper and other well known gin ingredients.
The tonic that I recommend this time is the Thomas Henry tonic because it brings this nice gin to the forefront. A second recommendation is the Gents Swiss Roots Tonic, a tonic which works great with the dandelion flower aspect of the gin, making the G&T slightly more bitter and earthy.
The garnish that I recommend are a couple of lime wedges, combined with some mint. I truly can say that it works just perfect!
This semi-floral gin is a quiet nice highlight in my cabinet and I truly will enjoy it in the future!
My score for this Irish gin is 90/100, worthy of a nice shiny gold GinUrWay medal!
