Wild & Irish – Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin
Tue 2 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:30 BST
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 and 19th centuries there were over 200 licensed distilleries in Ireland who, 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. Initially they started with the first ever spirit, poitín, and since then have moved to whiskey and most recently the release of their seasonal, wild botanical gins.
