Glendalough Double Barrel – a Perfect Whiskey to Gift this Christmas

If you’re not a whiskey drinker but are on the hunt for the perfect gift for the whiskey lover in your life, then Glendalough Distillery’s Double Barrel is guaranteed to impress this Christmas.

Aged twice for twice the taste and packaged in a beautiful bespoke box, this award winning single grain, craft whiskey has been flame-charred in ex-bourbon barrels and toasted in Spanish Sherry casks to create a new style of Irish whiskey for the new Irish whiskey drinker.


Light yet rich with dark fruits on the nose, Glendalough Double Barrel is sweet and smooth with notes of butterscotch and maraschino cherries finishing on festive ginger spices with a faint glimmer of almond. A complex Irish whiskey for the boldest of loved ones.

Glendalough Double Barrel is priced at €37 and is available in Tesco, SuperValu, Dunnes, O'Briens, Celtic Whiskey Shop, Carryout, Molloy’s, all good independent off licences and on the Glendalough Distillery website

About Glendalough Distillery Founded in 2011, Glendalough Distillery makes luxury craft spirits in the scenic Wicklow Mountains. Initially distilling Poitín, the business quickly grew to offer a broader range of premium and super-premium Irish spirits. Now in its 10th year, the distillery has become a leader in innovating craft Irish spirits, releasing some world-firsts like Irish single malt whiskey aged in rare Japanese Mizunara oak, Irish single malt whiskey aged in Wicklow Irish oak, and a range of distinctive Irish gins distilled from hand-foraged, fresh, wild botanicals picked daily in the mountains that surround the distillery.

Glendalough Distillery have always been very careful to look after the place they call home too – The Wicklow Mountains. Whether it’s planting trees in the surrounding mountains as part of their Pot Still Whiskey cask programme or foraging wild gin botanicals in a way that promotes regeneration, seeing the Wicklow mountains flourish is the Distillery’s reward.
