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 5 Small Batch Single Malt Irish Whiskey brings the marriage of Bourbon, Pedro Ximénez and Madeira casks together, allowing the Bourbon casks to release a warm aroma of spices. Creating a unique single malt Irish whiskey bombarding the senses with molten honeycomb and salted caramel. While the Pedro Ximénez and Madeira casks combine beautifully to bring sun-dried raisins forward, scented with creamy blossom honey and saturated with vanilla. This is a wonderfully warm, lingering and mellow whiskey.
