Find The Perfect Irish Whiskey For Dad This Father's Day From Dingle Distillery
If you’re searching for the perfect Father's Day gift for dad, look no further. Dingle Distillery has the perfect solution, with a range of carefully produced triple distilled Irish whiskeys to suit the whiskey lover in your life.
Dingle’s top picks for dad include:
DINGLE SINGLE POT STILL 5
Recently launched, Dingle Single Pot Still 5 is the distillery’s fifth and final release of its small batch Single Pot Still series. Matured fully in Bourbon casks resulting in a rich smooth whiskey, 8,000 bottles (46.5% ABV) of the liquid have been produced, priced at €90 (RRP) per 70cl bottle. Dingle is only the second distillery in Ireland to produce a single pot still whiskey.
Tasting notes: With an all-bourbon maturation, the resulting flavour profile reveals tones of dried raspberries and butter mints followed by white chocolate with a sprinkling of flaked almonds. The chocolate gives way to that returning Dingle spice of soft wood and leather notes which glide you into a long, memorable finish.
DINGLE SINGLE MALT
Dingle Single Malt is the distillery’s first core whiskey expression, making Dingle Distillery one of few Irish distilleries to produce a core single malt product made entirely with its own spirit. Matured in PX Sherry (61%) and Bourbon (39%) first fill casks and comprising predominantly 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. The distillery’s water source is its own well, 240 metres below ground. Dingle Single Malt (46.3% ABV) is priced at €55.00 (RRP) per 70cl bottle. Tasting Notes: Nose – Lime Zest & Chopped Mint. Fresh Sweet Pear. Taste – Apples, Caramel, Raisins, Vanilla. Finish – Honey sweetness & mixed spice linger on the tongue. Dingle uses non-chill filtration to produce its whiskey and adds no colouring. Doug Leddin, Group Marketing Manager at Dingle Distillery, comments: “Father’s Day is the perfect time to show your appreciation for your dad by gifting him a bottle of Dingle whiskey and perhaps raising a toast together. With several to choose from, there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets from Dingle.” Dingle Distillery has received numerous awards for it's spirits, most recently at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022 where Dingle Single Pot Still 5 and Dingle Gin won Double Gold Medals.
With Father’s Day approaching on Sunday, 19th June, you can pick up a bottle from dingledistillery.ie, Irish Malts, Celtic Whiskey Shop, independent off-licenses, and retailers nationwide.
