First Ever Bottles of Dingle Whiskey Sell Out
But don’t panic, they are releasing the rest of the first batch soon.
The much lauded Dingle Whiskey, which sold out immediately following its launch in November 2016, is available again. A further 3,500 bottles of Dingle Single Malt Whiskey (46.5%, €65rrp), the balance of the first batch, is now arriving on shelves nationwide at Off Licences, O’Brien’s stores, The Celtic Whiskey shop as well as Shannon Airport.
A very limited quantity of the Dingle Whiskey Cask Strength (60.7%, €120rrp) will also be released. Dingle Whiskey is also available at bars nationwide.
“Whiskey aficionados are always keen to add a bottle of first batch whiskey to their collection,” said Elliot Hughes of The Porterhouse Brewing Company. “The demand in November was phenomenal, so we’re delighted to be able to release the rest of the first batch!”
Dingle whiskey is hand crafted throughout. From the immensely manual mashing process, to hand labelling and bottling. Using a wooden wash back and fermentation tanks, Dingle Whiskey is then triple distilled using three individual copper pot stills which gives the whiskey its unique flavour. The result is an aroma of vanilla, almonds and cereal sweetness. The flavour is clean, sweet with notes of marzipan, vanilla and hay, finishing with a pleasant dryness and hints of aniseed and liquorice.
The Dingle Distillery, in the old sawmills on the fringes of Dingle, Europe’s most westerly town, is Ireland’s first purpose-built distillery in over 100 years. It grew out of the success of The Porterhouse Brewing Company, sharing the ethos of independence in a market dominated by big brands.
Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley had a vision to bring an artisan craft distillery to the picturesque town of Dingle. The first spirit trickled from the stills in December 2012, winning accolades as Dingle Original Gin and Dingle Distillery Vodka. Now, following three years of maturation in the mild, moist climate of Ireland’s south-west coast, Dingle Whiskey joins the family.
