The Dingle Distillery launched to an unsuspecting public in October 2012 producing Ireland’s only artisanal pot still gin and vodka. On the 18th December 2012, the first triple distilled spirit flowed from our magnificent pot stills, this spirit when matured will be Dingle Single Malt Whiskey.
To celebrate the first purpose built distillery for a new whiskey in over 200 years in Ireland we decided to launch, The Dingle Founding Fathers. This was limited to 500 people worldwide who purchased a 200 or 250 litre cask of this new Dingle spirit. This entitled them to be a Founding Father of The Dingle Distillery. We are pleased to announce that this wonderful programme has been a great success and is now sold out and closed.
But, due to a continual request for casks we have decided to launch a new cask release which we call our “The Sons & Daughters of the Dingle Whiskey Distillery”.
We have sourced some exquisite Virgin European Oak casks and at our request, have been heavily charred by the cooper for flavour. These 25 litre casks have been seasoned three times with Dingle single malt spirit in order to balance out the wonderful flavour available from Virgin Oak. The resulting casks will be filled for The Sons & Daughters of the Dingle Whiskey Distillery and that spirit will remain in their casks and stored in the distillery for 3 years and one day from which day forth it will be your own personal Dingle Single Malt Whiskey.
The benefits of ownership include the option to visit the distillery, see spirit being distilled and then on the occasion, visit your cask and wish it a speedy maturation.
Your cask will be adorned with a brass plaque bearing your name and date of cask fill.
