The Glendalough Poitin is double distilled from both Malted Barley and Irish Sugar Beet and with each small batch then matured in Virgin Irish Oak Casks, sourced locally.

Glendalough Distillery Tasting Note ...
Nose - "The nose is slight in nature with a faint Riesling fragrance. Oak, berried fruit, gooseberries and blackcurrants are in there. A good, heady aroma."
Palate - "The taste is mellow in the mouth with traces of lychees. Hints of cracked black pepper, dried fruits and touches of vanilla and toasted oak are there. A very full flavoured poitín that goes down nicely."
Finish - "The finish has good length, it stays and warms with a sweet and slightly salty, yet spicy tail of dried fruit and berry notes."
