Our Review of Jackford Irish Potato Gin

The Stafford family have a long-rooted reputation for excellence when it comes to farming both locally and nationally from their family farm based just outside of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. Potatoes grown on the farm are distributed throughout the country and are known for their exceptional quality, nutritional value and delicious taste. Now the excellent flavour of this produce has been incorporated into a fabulous premium Irish Craft Gin, Jackford Irish Potato Gin. 

The popularity of Irish Craft Gin has skyrocketed in recent years as consumers look for premium quality drinks with subtle yet enticing flavours that craft gin can capably provide. John Stafford saw an opportunity to add more value to his expertly grown potatoes by creating his own take on the popular beverage, featuring his own potatoes and several other carefully selected ingredients for his Jackford Irish Potato Gin. 

Jackford Irish Potato Gin is a labour of love for John and a testament to the land for which he farms and sustainably manages. A sip of this gin with a dash of tonic water provides you with the earthy tastes of the rich dark soil of the farming heartland of Wexford. Herbs and spices such as rosemary, juniper, liquorice root and angelica are subtly blended in an enticing aroma of flavours that elevate this craft gin to dizzying heights. All aspects of Jackford Irish Potato Gin proclaim its excellence. The chic and sophisticated labelling and overall presentation is complemented by its cultured taste. 

While traditionalists prefer their craft gin served with a good tonic water, the team at Jackford Irish Potato Gin have been having fun creating some lively cocktails that add a little jazz to the mix! The namesake ‘Jackford Smash’ is one to try out. All you’ll need is some sugar syrup, fresh lime juice, some ice and soda water, along with Jackford Gin and you’re good to go. Don’t forget to add a sprig of basil for good measure! We are also loving the aptly named, ‘Damn the Weather’ cocktail which encourages us to sit back and relax with a good gin if the rain is battering against the windows. For this you’ll need sweet vermouth, fresh orange juice, Jackford potato gin and cointreau. Serve with some ice and an orange twist. These are only but a few lovely recipes that Jackford have created and you’re invited to explore the versatility of the product by discovering the delightful flavour combinations associated with this premium Irish craft gin. 

Jackford Irish Potato Gin offers something valuable to the growing Irish Craft Gin market, allowing its flavour that harks back to its farming roots to speak for itself. With a longstanding reputation for excellence cultivated over many years of hard work and diligence, the Stafford family and team at Jackford Irish Potato Gin are well on their way to further success with their unique take on the favourite Irish Craft Gin.
