The Glendalough Distillery was set up by five friends from Wicklow and Dublin with a deep passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. In the 18th & 19th centuries there were over 200 licensed distilleries in Ireland and along with countless unlicensed ones produced diverse styles of poitín, whiskey, gin and even absinthe. Until recently that dropped to a small handful. Glendalough Distillery is now part of a revival of this heritage. The idea behind Glendalough Distillery is to make innovative spirits while staying true to the tradition and heritage of our ancestors.
Bright gold color. Bright, sulfurous aromas of raisin chutney, pencil shavings, creme brulee, and hint of fuel with a silky, racy, fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, interesting, relaxed caramelized papaya and mango, pepper jelly, ground nuts, and balsa finish. A brash and boisterous Irish whiskey.
