This fresh, rose-petal gin was first made to honour our head distiller’s mum, Rose, at his little brother’s wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit - literally.
Carefully-tended flowers, from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin.
After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavours and give it its lovely pink hue.
This is not ”just another pink gin”, far from it. The depth and complexity really needs to be tasted to be understood. Floral, fragrant and flavourful, it is some of the best, most interesting gin we’ve made and comes after a lot of experimenting with plants, fruit, spices and flowers.
|The aim of Glendalough Distillery is to recapture Irelands lost heritage of great spirit production and create new, exciting and contemporary brands.
