The team at Glendalough forages wild plants from the mountains around the distillery to craft this bright and botanical gin. The fresh herbs and flowers go directly into the still within hours of picking. Slow distillation teases out the delicate flavors in tiny batches for the maestro to smell, taste, and bottle only when ready. Leave it to Ireland to out-gin the British.
Look for subtle fennel, licorice and sage notes on nose and palate, with a gentle, refreshing exhale that hints at lemon and lime peel. It is “foraged from what grows in the mountains,” says the producer of this Irish gin's botanicals.
