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.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
