Silver Spear Gin is a marriage of 13 different citrus, herbs and spices. Produced by hand in small batches at Ballydarton House in Carlow, Ireland, the ancestral home of Capt. John Henry Watson.The Silver Spear was awarded to Capt. Watson in 1876 by the Cawnpore Tent Club (Kanpur, India) and it harks back to the heyday of gallant Cavalry officers refreshed on Gin and Indian Tonic.
Silver Spear was voted ‘Best Contemporary Irish Gin’ at the world gin awards in London in February of this year and all done on blind tasting. This was a remarkable achievement for such a new brand.
