Derived from those meticulously nurtured flowers sourced from this special Irish rose garden, Glendalough Rose Gin undergoes a meticulous vapor distillation process alongside wild roses and botanicals from the picturesque Wicklow mountains, resulting in an exquisite floral concoction. Following distillation, the gin undergoes a secondary infusion with additional roses, intensifying its flavors and imparting a mesmerizing pink hue. Originally conceived to honor the memory of the distiller’s beloved mother, Rose, Glendalough Rose Gin serves as a poignant tribute, allowing her spirit to linger in every sip, a detail that was especially poignant when shared at his brother’s wedding, where their mother’s presence was dearly missed.
