A luscious Irish Gin with rose infusions to delight the senses.
 
Glendalough was founded by "five friends from Wicklow and Dublin." They began their journey creating Poitín — a traditional Irish distillate made in very small pot stills (sort of like small batch Irish Moonshine). From there it was a short and easy step into four Irish Whiskeys and a variety of ten, unique, Herbal-infused Gins as well. Everything is made by hand with a good measure of love
 
We love a good Gin with floral notes. The perfumery of senses is just lovely as you raise the glass to take each luscious sip. Glendalough Rose Gin certainly qualifies on all counts, and then some. It starts with their classic dry Wild Botanical Gin recipe. But they then re-distill it to each the juniper notes and infuse three kinds of rose petals — Heritage, Damask, and wild Irish roses from the local Wicklow Mountains. It’s a truly lovely sipper… it’s almost romantic. And it really adds something special to classic Gin cocktails.

Smartass Corner:
Glendalough is Gaelic for "valley of two lakes." And if you ever get to visit the small town of Glendalough, you will find just that — a beautiful east-Ireland hamlet with a small craft distillery and two lovely lakes nearby.

The finish is smooth and delicate.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
"In the 6th century, St Kevin was supposed to be the next king of the Irish province called Leinster, but he turned his back on the nobility and hiked the mountains for 7 years until he came to this glacial valley, which is Glendalough, and set up a monastery there.
