About Dingle Single Malt Batch No. 5 Triple Distilled Irish Whiskey
Two hundred years ago, there were over a hundred officially recognized distilleries in Ireland. Today there are less than ten. Founded as Ireland’s first artisan distillery by Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley in 2012, Dingle Distillery takes its name from the town in which it is located, where tourists flock to visit Europe’s westernmost human settlement. An old sawmill was converted into a distillery, where Dingle marries Ireland’s tradition of independent distilling with innovative processes only feasible for small batch producers.
Dingle’s humid climate with cool gulf stream breezes is considered ideal for spirit distillation. When restaurateur Oliver Hughes decided to open Irleand’s first artisan distillery, he wanted to capture the terroir of Kerry County. In order to do so, Hughes bought traditional pot still designed by Master Distiller John McDougall. He affectionately named the hand beaten copper pot still Oisin, and immediately began producing Ireland’s first small batch vodka, gin and whiskey.
Dingle Single Malt Whiskey Batch No.5 Triple Distilled is a marriage of first fill bourbon casks with Pedro Ximenez and Madeira casks, which allow for the bourbon to bring forward its warm and spicy notes. Triple distilled, this Irish single malt whiskey features a beautiful profile of molten honeycomb flavors and salted caramel, with Pedro Ximenez and Madeira casks producing notes of sun-dried raisins, complemented by blossom honey and vanilla. Bottled at 93 proof, this is a wonderfully warm and lingering whiskey.

About Irish Whiskey
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
