Built in a former sawmill on the fringes of Dingle, on the West Coast of Ireland, is the country’s first independently owned purpose built artisan spirits distillery to open in over 100 years. The distillery’s spirits are hand crafted throughout, from the immensely manual mashing process, to hand labelling and bottling. It produces an output of just 2 casks of whiskey a day, alongside its small batch Dingle Original Gin and Dingle Distillery Vodka.
Dingle Original Gin is produced using The Dingle Distillery's very own handcrafted 500L copper pot still called Oisin. Producing in small batches allows the distillery to ensure a greater control of the artisanal craft. The Dingle location for the distillery was chosen for its supply of botanicals that are foraged directly from the beautiful, rugged surrounding coastal areas.
Just in time for Christmas, Dingle has released a range of gift items, perfect to celebrate the fetive season.
LIMITED EDITION: DINGLE ORIGINAL GIN BAUBLE (ABV 42.5%) 50cl
For the gin lover who wants to decorate their tree with the spirit of Christmas, Dingle Original Gin launches a limited edition Dingle Original Gin Bauble. Just 3,000 of the Dingle Gin Baubles have been produced, and come as individual hand-blown baubles filled with 50ml of the artisan craft gin. The baubles feature a removable cork making them refillable throughout the festive season.
The Dingle Distillery Director Elliot Hughes comments, “The Dingle Gin Bauble is a fun and unique gift for the discerning gin-lover, allowing the consumer to enjoy both the decorative aspect as well as our award-winning Dingle Original Gin. Having produced just 3,000 makes them a real gin collectors’ item for the festive season, which we think they will go down fantastically well with both our Irish audience as well as the international fans of our Gin.”
LIMITED EDITION DINGLE ORIGINAL GIN FOUR SEASONS (ABV 46%) 4 x 20cl
A stackable 20cl collection of 4 seasonal gins have been distilled to create a London dry style gin, each with a flavour profile using botanicals and ingredients to evoke each season, echoing the provenance of the distillery's surrounding County Kerry landscape throughout the year.

A sweet tasting gin with a creamy texture and a mint and floral undertone. With rose petal and elderflower notes this luscious gin has a beautiful delicate floral character.
Juniper takes a back seat to a complex mix of ripe fruits and a peppery spice with a long finish of cardamom and ginger. This unique gin also consists of locally foraged blackberries, hawthorn, rowanberries and rosehips to give this gin a wonderful sense of Autumn.
Elderberries and hawthorn berries have been combined with seasonal spices for a warming, spicy and distinctly winter character.
