Collection Dingle - Irish Single Malt Whiskey

Dingle Whiskey Distillery was developed and conceived by three independent spirits makers: Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley. Oliver, Liam and Peter are behind the Porterhouse Brewing Company which was among the pioneers of craft beer in Ireland in 1996. In the mid-1990s, craft beer in Ireland was not appealing to the mainstream. For some the idea was radical, for others it was downright crazy. The refined palates of Oliver, Liam and Peter, then teenagers, had discovered a love of beer. As their palates became more familiar with the flavors of the earth's natural ingredients, their attention turned to whiskey.

That gave the three boys another idea: an artisanal distillery. Could this work? Distilling in Ireland was controlled by three major brands. How would a small, independent distillery fit into this mix? In 1996, Oliver and Liam had the courage to take on the big boys' challenge and do something different. Would you like to do it again? And if they wanted that!

Dingle Whiskey Distillery was founded in the cold winter of 2012. Ireland was just emerging from the deepest recession in living memory. What many didn't know, however, was that the most significant event in the Irish whiskey industry in decades took place in a tin shed in the town of Dingle, Co. Kerry. Few witnessed the first casks of Dingle whiskey being filled on December 18, 2012. Three years and a day later, on December 19, 2015, another cask, Cask No. 2, released.

To achieve the flavors the distillery uses three special handcrafted copper stills to create what they believe to be the ultimate Irish whiskey. The particular design of the stills, with a boiling ball, encourages reflux and contributes significantly to the whiskey's remarkable smoothness and purity.
