Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin
The 18th & 19th centuries there were the glory days of the Irish whiskey industry, with over 200 licensed distilleries in all of Ireland. There were also countless unlicensed distilleries at the time, producing diverse styles of poitín, whiskey, gin and even absinthe. But through a series of unfortunate events, the Irish Whiskey Industry dried to a trickle in the 1970’s.
Glendalough Distillery is part of a revival of this Irish heritage. Their philosophy is "to make innovative spirits while staying true to the tradition and heritage of our ancestors." Glendalough started out making poitín — the traditional Irish distillate made in small pot stills. From there they seamlessly transitioned to whiskey production, and most recently, seasonal, wild botanical gins. All of their production is handmade.
Working alongside local forager Geraldine Kavanagh, only the freshest botanical ingredients are foraged in the wild Wicklow country side. Small batches of this award winning seasonal gin are distilled in Holstein copper stills. No more than 3,000 bottles are produced each season, and each season yields a different character, creating something really special. "The unpredictable Irish weather resulting in an ever changing array of botanicals, berries and fruit. Each season will bring a different gin with varying taste and style" (producer).
