Our Favorite Irish Whiskey (and Gin!) – Glendalough

December 9, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey

At one time there were many craft distilleries in Ireland however, consolidation and large corporate ownership have shaped distilling in Ireland for a long time.  Glendalough is a true craft distillery and one of our favorites.

Glendalough’s whiskeys bring quality and breadth to what was a ubiquitous category.  If you thought you knew Irish whiskey, think again.  I was thrilled to learn about the history of distilling in Ireland and to taste spirits that are well outside my expectations.  I hope you will be too.

The spectacular countryside where the distillery is located is also home to some fine foraging.  Foraging near a distillery almost always leads to gin.  And a fine gin indeed… The terroir of the Wicklow Countryside is ’embottled’ using fresh foragings and a traditional (for whiskey) cooper pot still.
