  • Glendalough’s 7 year old Mizunara single malt whiskey which received double gold is aged in Japanese Mizunara casks from the island of Hokkaido in Japan. The whiskey is fruity and floral and is luxuriously smooth in texture. It has a hint of dark orange chocolate, sandalwood and cinnamon.
  • Glendalough’s Double Barrel Whiskey was also awarded double gold, it is aged twice in two different barrels. American oak Bourbon barrels bring the elements of sweet honey and smooth vanilla flavours. The Spanish oak Oloroso barrels layer on dried fruit, and nutty flavours.
  • Glendalough’s Wild Rose Irish Gin received a gold award. It is made with carefully tended flowers from the garden of the mother of Glendalough’s head distiller, and the gin also includes wild flowers from the mountains around the distillery. After the distillation process the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen its flavour.
