Irish Gin of four seasons.

Saint Kevin, an Irish Saint born in 498 in County Wicklow in Ireland, lived most of his life in the valley of Glendalough as a hermit. After growing tired of his followers, he moved to Glendalough, lived in a man-made cave, and slowly built up civilisation.

It is Saint Kevin’s pioneering spirit and strength of character which inspired the five founders of the Glendalough Distillery to revive the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. They started off with traditional Irish spirits; Poitin and Whiskey, before venturing into Gin.

Glendalough started producing four different varieties of their Gin; one for each season, with the first being released in Summer 2014. The team forages for local botanicals, distilling them the next day when fresh to keep all of their essential oils (where many Gins would use dried).

Each of the four Glendalough Wild Gins have the same base spirit and botanicals (including juniper, coriander, orris root, lemon and orange peel), with one dominant botanical to capture that season.

More recently the team has launched Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin - capturing all four seasons in one bottle. Made with liquorice root, lemon, elderflower, raspberry, blackberry leaves, wild rose and more, it’s a wildly complex Gin. Slow distillation (which takes 24 hours from start to finish) ensures the flavors teased out from the fresh botanicals give the best depth of flavor. This Gin is fresh and floral on the nose, citrus and mellow fruits give way to warming spices for a long finish.

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.
He was a monk, but not the sort fo monk we might think of today, we like to think he was more like Bear Grylls – his passion was the wilderness, God and doing things his own way, the hard way. We really liked that about him - doing hard, but right way. That’s the reason he’s on the front of our bottle," explain the founders.
The Glendalough brand is personified by the story of St. Kevin:
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
