A youthful, quality Irish spirit with legs.

Glendalough was founded by “five friends from Wicklow and Dubli'.” 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 a variety of Irish Whiskies and Herbal-infused Gins as well. Everything is made by hand with a good measure of love.

OK… stay with us because Glendalough Triple Barrel Irish Whiskey is a unique thing indeed. First, it is a Single Grain Irish Whiskey. That means that it is a combination of grains — in this case corn and malted barley — distilled and aged on site. They call it “triple barrel” because the spirit is aged three and a half years in ex-Bourbon casks, then six months in Oloroso Sherry casks, and finally it is finished in Madeira casks — for a total of four years of quality aging. Now, as a young Whiskey, we say be patient. Pour your dram, give it a single cube of ice or a spoonful of water, and then let it breath.

You will like the results.

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.
