Glendalough Rose Gin heads to USBy Melita Kiely
Irish distillery Glendalough has released its award-winning Rose Gin in the US, a pink iteration made with “wild ingredients”.
Glendalough Rose Gin made its US debut last month (June). It is made from fresh ingredients sourced from the mountains that surround the distillery in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Glendalough claims to be the only distillery in the world that employs full-time foragers, enabling its team to distil using fresh wild plants every day.
Botanicals used in the gin include Irish mountain roses and damask roses, which are said to be the “most aromatic roses that can be found”.
The petals are distilled into the spirit and also used to infuse the gin post-distillation, giving the spirit its pink tinge.
Glendalough Rose Gin has been available in the UK since February. It is available across 15 US states priced at RRP US$34.99.
