Author: web master


Robert & Bhagya Barrett, Maharani Gin, Rebel City Distillery

Rebel City Distillery have created a fun, engaging, and unique virtual gin tasting experience just for you! We’ll meet up online, Robert & Bhagya guide you through the extraordinary origins and backstory of Maharani Gin and of course, we’ll taste some award-winning Maharani!

Rebel City Distillery, the first new distillery in Cork city in almost fifty years, launched its first release, Maharani Gin, last summer. Founded by Robert & Bhagya Barrett, Rebel City Distillery is situated in the heart of Cork’s historic Docklands, and will produce a range of premium spirits which draw inspiration from around the world. Maharani Gin celebrates a fusion of Cork and Keralite cultures. Robert comes from Cork, Ireland and Bhagya comes from Kerala, India. Maharani Gin is a homage to Keralite women who are known for their strength and importance in society.

Our head distiller Robert will talk you through the process of formulating the perfect gin while Bhagya will talk about our unique Keralite botanicals and sourcing them from an organic women’s cooperative in Wayanad, India. Maharani Gin is zested with Pomelo fruit and uniquely spiced with Cassia & Nutmeg Mace. We’ll taste the award-winning Maharani Gin as well as the special distillates of its signature botanicals.

Speaking about our virtual tasting, Rebel City Distillery’s Head Distiller and Co-Founder, Robert Barrett said, “Our plans for Maharani Gin had to be significantly adjusted over the last few months in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we are thrilled that our product is now available to buy online and we can offer virtual tastings. We can’t open the distillery to the public yet, but we can meet online and share a glass of Maharani together!”

Rebel City Distillery are running their first online tasting and Q&A session on Friday 26 of February at 7 pm. There are two tickets options. You can purchase a tasting box which includes a 70cl bottle of Maharani Gin, three distillates of our signature botanicals Pomelo, Nutmeg Mace & Cassia, a stemless glass & a ticket to the event, €60.
