This fresh, rose-petal gin was first made to honor the head distiller’s mom, Rose, at his little brother’s wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit – literally.
Carefully-tended flowers, from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin.
After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavors and give it its lovely pink hue.
This is not “just another pink gin,” far from it. The depth and complexity needs to be tasted to be understood. Floral, fragrant and flavorful, it is some of the best, most interesting gin Glendalough has made and comes after a lot of experimenting with plants, fruit, spices, and flowers.
