You may have seen the teasers for the past fortnight or so on Social Media, and it all points to today, marking a milestone in Dingle Distillery’s history and a huge step forward in their journey of growth.
Dingle Distillery launches its first core whiskey expression, Dingle Single Malt. In doing so it becomes one of few Irish distilleries to produce a core single malt product made entirely with its own spirit.
Some 50,000 bottles of the triple distilled, non-chill filtered Dingle Single Malt have been produced and will be sold domestically as well as exported to key international markets including the UK, Germany, France, China and, later this year, the US. The distillery expects to produce 100,000 bottles of Dingle Single Malt, and half a million bottles across the distillery’s portfolio, by 2023.
Matured in PX Sherry (61%) and Bourbon (39%) first fill casks and comprising predominantly of six to seven-year-old spirit, every element of the production of Dingle Single Malt is manual, with a human hand and eye at each critical point.
Believing in "what's small is beautiful", Dingle Distillery wouldn't want it any other way. It allows them to craft their whiskey exactly as they want, in Dingle.
Beyond the distillery, there’s nothing but the Atlantic Ocean for almost four thousand miles. Dingle Whiskey is distilled at the edge, literally. Like every process in it's journey from malted barley to the contents of this bottle, the cut from heads to hearts is done by hand. Truly hand-cut. From the edge.
Priced at just €55.00 per 70cl bottle, this new Single Malt Whiskey is available to purchase from today, via Dingle Distillery’s website.
