It's official. The best gin and tonic in all 32 counties can be found in Davy Macs in Waterford.

The winning drink consisted of a delish blend of Drumshambo Gunpowder Irish gin, grapefruit peel, fresh raspberries and elderflower tonic water served in a glass teapot.


The official announcement was made after last week's Irish Gin and Tonic Festival. All participating contestants created a signature Irish gin and tonic for the occasion and the public voted for their fave via social media. 

Davy Macs, Waterford's newest old bar opened last Christmas and is described as a 'fantastic hidden gem' in the heart of Waterford city. They serve over 60 gins and amazing gin cocktails.
