Boyne Valley Flavours is a cooperative marketing group that represents the coming together of like-minded people in the Boyne Valley Region of Ireland who are passionate about food, its origins and its story. They are keen to celebrate with you the journey it takes from the farm to the table. There are almost 50 businesses working together, offering an exciting calendar of immersive, authentic and experience-led food events which showcase the best of our region’s producers, chefs, farmers, venues and of course its people.
In Ireland’s Ancient East, the cuisine is ancient, simple and profound. Named the bounty of Ireland for its lush green landscapes and rich pastures, in this temperate region you will taste dishes preserved in Irish tradition, the world’s best grass fed beef and floury blaas from artisan bakers. Whether it’s revelling a local whiskey at fire side traditional music session in a country pub or stepping back in time to enjoy a convivial dinner at a big country house.
“What a gin. Punchy and bright, it really is amazing liquid which doesn't have to rely on hype or backstory, you just need to try it!”
— Paddy Noir, Renowned Drinks Consultant Dublin
“A huge thank you to Blanaid & all the team at Listoke Distillery for hosting such a great evening. Greeted with a large glass of Listoke 1777 Gin, accompanied by Fever Tree tonic, ice, black peppercorns and a shaving of lemon, our first instruction was "don't let your glass go empty!”
— Pat Beechinor, Listoke Gin School Visitor from Kinsale, Co. Cork
“We really enjoyed the day at Listoke Gin School and highly recommend it. We were so impressed by both the passion and enthusiasm of the Listoke team, matched with the unique and authentic location. It's a great idea for a couples day out or as a group as friends. We're hoping to visit again!”
— Gerry Murray, Listoke Gin School Visitor from Fingal, Co. Dublin
“Listoke 1777 Gin is bold and full of flavour. As soon as you open the bottle you are greeted with a bountiful aroma with floral, fruity and earthy notes. The gin has personality, impressive depth of flavour and a complexity that reveals piney juniper, citrus and herbaceous notes, and a lingering finish with a touch of spice. Best enjoyed in a gin and tonic, Listoke 1777 Gin is versatile, with orange peel, rosemary and cinnamon all producing moreish servings.”
