The Story

The 18th & 19th centuries there were the glory days of the Irish whiskey industry, with over 200 licensed distilleries in all of Ireland. There were also countless unlicensed distilleries at the time, producing diverse styles of poitín, whiskey, gin, and even absinthe. But through a series of unfortunate events, the Irish whiskey industry dried to a trickle in the 1970s.

Glendalough Distillery is part of a revival of this Irish heritage. Their philosophy is "to make innovative spirits while staying true to the tradition and heritage of our ancestors." Glendalough started out making poitín — the traditional Irish distillate made in small pot stills. From there they seamlessly transitioned to whiskey production, and most recently, seasonal, wild botanical gins. All of their production is handmade.

This very special, small-batch Gin takes the Wild Gin recipe and redistills it with extra fruit, flowers, spices and an abundance of fresh rose petals. Three varieties of rose are used including the rare and elusive Wild Rose from the Wicklow mountains, large fragrant Heritage Roses and the ancient prized Damask Rose. Combined these roses create a naturally pink, very floral gin.

The delicate nature of petals requires a more gentle, slower distillation than the wild botanical gin. Vapor distillation is more efficient in extracting the essential oils and flavors. After distillation, the gin is further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavors and create a beautiful pink hue. Floral, fragrant and flavorful, this unique gin is the product of endless experimentation with plants, fruit, spices, and flowers.
