A gin inspired by two grandmothers!

Frankie & Eileen’s Gin is made by a family-run, independent micro distillery in Northern Ireland. The story of the two women who inspired this gin is just as wonderful as the gin itself!

The Story

Frankie & Eileen’s is made in Randalstown overlooking Lough Neagh. This wonderful gin is named after the grandmothers of the owners. Frankie is originally from Belfast and Eileen originally from the Glens of Antrim. Without wanting to make a political statement, the founders were keen to highlight a story of love. Their parents, from two different community backgrounds got together and didn’t let any of the religious issues of the troubles get in the way.

In 2018 their copper pot still was manufactured by Geterbrewed using locally sourced Copper & local skills. This was the first Irish still to have been manufactured in Ireland for quite some time!

The Mitchells have been supplying the brewing industry across Ireland with Ingredients for a number of years. They co-founded Hillstown Brewery and have now spent the last year two years creating a Gin recipe for their much loved Frankie & Eileen’s.

The Gin

Frankie & Eileen’s Gin is a classic citrus forward gin with earthy notes.

The combination of flavours from the botanicals are macerated in the spirit for 36 hours! Spring water comes from an onsite well in County Antrim & a balanced blend of the finest botanicals provide a smooth gin.

 

Botanicals

Juniper – English Coriander Seed – Angelica – Lemon Peel – Potato Peel – Pea Pods – Orris Root – Liquorice Root – Cardamom – Grains of Paradise – Cassis – Bitter Orange – Sweet Orange.

 

 

Perfect Serve

Glass filled with ice, 50ml F&E Gin, topped up with a Light Tonic. Garnish with citrus! Orange, Lemon, Lime or Grapefruit will all work wonderfully.
