Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin mingled with rosemary tincture, wild foraged elderberry, apple cider vinegar shrub and uplifted with homemade Douglas Fir Tonic syrup and sparkling Irish spring water.
The Glendalough Distillery is Ireland’s first craft distillery. We’re a small distillery set up by a few friends from Wicklow and Dublin with a passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. We want to forge our own path and do things differently, just like the man on our bottle, St Kevin, did. For him it was building a civilisation in the wilderness, for us it’s innovative, independent spirits. We started out with poitín, then whiskey, followed by seasonal gin and earlier this year we launched our Wild Botanical Gin.
Check out the festival event we’re doing at JT Pim’s on October 12th at 5.3o pm. Our forager Geraldine Kavanagh will be going through the details of the wild botanicals she uses and the bartender maestro Darren Geraghty will be demonstrating how to mix with them! Tickets available here!
