New Gin Menu Shakes Up Bert’s Jazz Bar

A world of gin awaits guests at Bert’s Jazz Bar this summer as the art deco venue launches its first dedicated gin cocktail menu.

The mouth-watering offering will feature gins from across the globe including Spain, Australia, Italy as well as gins that are distilled a bit closer to home including Belfast, Cork and Kerry.

The menu has been designed to put an innovative twist to the classic G&T serve and each drink will be carefully paired with garnishes and a tonic that have been handpicked to enhance the different flavours and botanicals present in the gins.

Serves on the new menu include the locally distilled Jawbox Gin which is served with Merchant’s Heart Ginger Ale, ginger root and lime and an Italian Gin, Malfy, which is served with Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic and sprig of thyme.

Lucy McConville, manager of Bert’s Jazz Bar, helped create the new menu with the bartenders;

“The popularity of gin has grown significantly over the last few years and the industry has been reinvigorated with many new, independent craft distilleries opening up.

“We’ve had a surge in the number of customers asking us about different gin brands, which is the reason why we’ve decided to create a bespoke cocktail menu dedicated to gin.

“Each gin brand has its own distinct flavour and we’ve put a lot of time and effort into handpicking tonics, fresh fruit and herbs to complement the drinks.

“Of course, if you don’t find something on the menu that you like, our bartenders have a wealth of great knowledge on gin and are more than happy to help you create your own perfect serve.”
