Pot Still Gin Description ...
Dingle Distillery located on the Dingle peninsula at the door step to the Atlantic Ocean was established in 2012 in an old sawmill on the fringe of Dingle. The process starts with the distillation of grain spirit in a small batch 500 Litre copper pot still called Oisin. The distillate vapours pass through the flavor basket, located at the neck of the still and only when distillation is complete, is the distillate allowed to pass through, capturing the unique character of the nine traditional and locally grown botanicals. The resulting distillate is cut down from 70% abv to 42.5% abv, using water from the distilleries own well, 240 feet below.
Fairleys Tasting Note ...
Nose - "The artisan gin displays freshness, with floral character, juniper, coriander and lime on the nose."
Palate - "On the palate the gin is soft with exuberant coriander and citrus, subtle warm spice, finishing clean and dry with notes of lavender and cinnamon. Ideal for cocktails and even better as a gin and tonic".
