Indie Pop Stars Black Castle Drinks in The Sunday Irish Times!

Black Castle Drinks Sunday Times Ireland

This bank holiday Sunday we were featured in an excellent article on the soft drink movement in Ireland written by Corinna Hardgrave for the Sunday Times in Ireland. 

We were thrilled to be the featured so prominently and love the picture - John's face makes us laugh out loud!! Our Black Castle craft sodas were in good company too, with Poacher's Tonic and Wild Orchard soft drinks also featured.

Our delicious craft soda cocktail, The Red Setter also appeared! It's a citrus and spicey twist on a classic 'Jemmy & Red'. Check out the cocktail recipe below. 

Black Castle Red Lemonade


This twist on the ‘jemmy & red’ is made up of refreshing citrus flavours and fragrant spices using our Spiced Red Lemonade.

You’ll need:
Black Castle Spiced Red Lemonade
40ml Irish Whiskey
20ml Triple Sec
2 Dashes of Aromatic Bitters

Garnish with a large wedge of pink grapefruit and enjoy! 

On The Dry for the Irish Heart Foundation

For the month of January Black Castle will be going 'On The Dry' in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation. 

We'll be giving 50% of our profits from cases of our soft drinks sold in January to the Irish Heart Foundation. So there'll be no reason for you not to get involved!

Plus... We'll be sharing lots of alcohol free cocktail recipes, things to do and of course our progress. 

Stay tuned for more updates!

Black Castle launches at CATEX 2015

Having developed our recipes for over a year we were delighted to launch our new range of soft drinks at the 50th Anniversary of CATEX in the RDS. 

We set up shop in the Chef's Choice area for smaller producers, covered our shell stand with brown paper and cracked open our first few bottles to the public! 

We had a brilliant reaction to all three of our drinks, from independent cafe's to 5* Hotels to specialist off-licenses. Since then we have been following up with clients  and are happy to say we are now stocked in a number of brilliant businesses!
