I guess we should start by pointing out the obvious! Dingle is named after the small fishing village on the coast of Ireland. The Dingle Peninsula stretches 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland's South-West coast. The coastline consists of steep sea-cliffs, broken by sandy beaches. With waters full of marine life including dolphins, it’s no doubt our Gin Of The Month was inspired by the nature and scenery surrounding the distillery (talk about a nice office space!).
Bringing innovation together with a sense of individuality, Dingle wanted to create a London Dry Gin like no other. Which is exactly what they did! Dingle Gin is completely unique, yet is still distilled in the same traditional method in which gin has been made for decades. The spirit is collected at 70% abv and then cut to 42.5% abv using the purest of water which they draw from the well, 240 feet below the distillery. With the use of classic Irish botanicals including rowan berry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather, Dingle Gin really is a true taste of the Kerry landscape.
With an aroma of pepper and freshly cut grass on the nose with a crisp and floral character that balances wonderfully with spicy juniper, coriander and herbal notes on the palate. The finish is light with a hint of pepper, delicious.
Peter Mosley sums up Dingle Original Gin’s unique character in a few words: “The uniquely Irish botanicals give a fabulously fresh, floral character that perfectly balances the traditional juniper. But, to be honest, you really have to taste it for yourself.”
Uncle Val's Botanical Gin is a little bit special, which is why we chose it as our May Gin of the Month! Summery and perfect for a summery G&T or delicious cocktail.
