The Dingle Whiskey Distillery has released a series of new small batch whiskies, the second set of releases from the distiller.
The four releases are:
- Dingle Single Malt Whiskey Batch No. 2, 70cl, ABV 46.5%, limited edition of 6,000 bottles, RRP €65. Matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, as well as bourbon casks, this whiskey displays notes of citrus and vanilla.
- Dingle Cask Strength Whiskey Batch No. 2, 70cl, ABV 60.2%, limited edition of 500 bottles, RRP €125. This cask strength limited edition release reflects the original flavour of the single malt matured in bourbon, Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez casks before the reduction in ABV.
- Dingle Pot Still Whiskey, 70cl, ABV 46.5%, 3 Casks. RRP €90, limited edition of 800 bottles. Matured exclusively in Pedro Ximenez casks, this small batch release has notes of dried fig and candied citrus peel with a suggestion of warm winter spices and plum pudding.
- Dingle Single Malt, 70cl, ABV 46.5%, 2 Casks. RRP €78, limited edition of approximately 700 bottles. Matured in a marriage of port and bourbon casks, this release has notes of tangerine and ginger with a creamy, long vanilla finish.
“These new releases show an incredibly interesting opportunity for us. It is the first time we have been able to showcase multiple whiskies showing different flavours amongst each of the releases,” said Elliot Hughes of The Dingle Distillery. “Every new release of Dingle Whiskey is exciting, but the pot still release is particularly momentous. It is an historic occasion for Dingle, the distillery and Irish whiskey distilling as it makes Dingle Distillery just the second distillery on the island of Ireland to produce pot still.”
The Dingle Distillery, in the old sawmills on the fringes of Dingle, Europe’s most westerly town, is Ireland’s first purpose built distillery in over 100 years.
