The release of this Single Malt Whiskey marks a watershed moment in the story of Irish Whiskey and the revival of the whiskey industry in Ireland and heralds the emergence of a new generation of artisan distiller
The Dingle Whiskey Distillery is not in the business of creating megabrands, nor do we distil for anyone else. Our scale is modest, our approach to what we make is essentially artisan and we have rekindled the tradition of independent distilling in Ireland. Two hundred years ago, this small island had over a hundred officially recognised distilleries; by the turn of this century there were two.
When the first spirit trickled from the stills here in November 2012 it represented a milestone in the history of distilling in Ireland, and now our unique Dingle Whiskey continually matures in the mild, moist climate of Ireland’s south-west coast while those first spirits are bottled into a magnificent single malt whiskey.
You can also enjoy the fruits of our labours in the form of Dingle Original Gin and Dingle Distillery Vodka.
