Wishing to revive the traditional Irish distilleries, five friends from Wiclow and Dublin created the Glendalough distillery.


In the 18th and 19th centuries, Ireland boasted more than 200 distilleries, which until recently dropped to a small handful. Glendalough was created to pay homage to the Irish distilling heritage. The young craft distillery produces today a range of innovative and traditional spirits, from Poitín to whiskeys and botanical gins, relying on heritage and tradition of the Irish distilleries. Glendalough is the first Irish craft distillery.

Colour: deep amber.

Nose: slight but undoubtedly rich with dark fruit; cherry, raisin, fig (with Christmas pudding notes on the nose for those lucky enough to know what that is) along with floral lemongrass and a touch of nutmeg.

Taste: sweet and creamy on the palate, with butterscotch, honey and peppercorn bringing along sweet Bourbon Cask notes with dried fruit returning through notes of maraschino cherries and a pinch of brown sugar.

Finish: lingering notes of ginger spices with a faint glimmer of almond to end a complex Irish Whiskey from start to finish.
