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.
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.
