To achieve their unique flavor's Dingle use three distinctive, hand-crafted copper pot stills to create what they believe is the ultimate Irish whiskey. Their distinctive design, incorporating a boil ball, encourages reflux and has much to do with the remarkable smoothness and purity of our spirit.
