Jackford Irish Potato Gin

Jackford Irish Gin, Stafford Irish Spirits, Co. WexfordThe Stafford family of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford have been growing the humble staple potato for many years and have recently improved the sustainability of their crop by using quality potatoes that would not normally be used in food services or available to the retail trade to produce a top-quality Gin of single origin.

The Gin has already won some amazing awards with a new strawberry flavour coming in 2022.

The process for creating Jackford Irish Potato Gin is based on traditional distilling methods where a mash is produced and there is a PNS created. PNS – Potato Neutral Spirit and then the magic happens with adding the high-level quality botanicals.
