The Dingle Whiskey Distillery is not in the business of creating megabrands, nor do we distil for anyone else. Our scale is modest, our approach to what we make is essentially artisan and we have rekindled the tradition of independent distilling in Ireland. Two hundred years ago, this small island had over a hundred officially recognised distilleries; by the turn of this century there were two. When the first spirit trickled from the stills here in November 2012 it represented a milestone in the history of distilling in Ireland. Already our unique Dingle Whiskey is maturing in the mild, moist climate of Ireland’s south-west coast and, as it does so, you can enjoy the fruits of our labours in the form of Dingle Original Gin and Dingle Distillery Vodka.
Dingle Distillery Batch 4 Small Batch Single Malt Irish Whiskey was matured in Bourbon, Sherry and Port casks, that has resulted in a full flavored, yet harmoniously balanced mix of creamy vanilla sweetness from the American oak, which combines beautifully with dried fruit flavors of apricot and sultanas from the fortified wine casks.
NOSE: Crème brulee, salted caramel and molten honeycomb.
PALATE: Sun dried raisins, creamy blossom honey and tiramisu.
FINISH: Warm, lingering, spice and vanilla.
