Dingle Distillery Adds Permanent Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Dingle Distillery in the southwest of Ireland has announced the release of a permanent addition to their lineup of spirits – Dingle Single Malt.
Matured in first-fill PX Sherry (61%) and Bourbon (39%) casks, bottled at 46.3% ABV, non-chill filtered and with no coloring added, Dingle Single Malt is made up of predominantly six to seven-year-old whiskeys. Every element of the production of Dingle Single Malt is undertaken manually with the water sourced from directly underneath the distillery from a spring 240 feet underground.
All Dingle Distillery whiskeys are distilled and matured in the Kerry town. Dingle Single Malt will be sold domestically in Ireland with immediate effect as well as exported to key international markets including the UK, Germany, France, China and, later this year, the U.S.
The distillery expects to produce 100,000 bottles of Dingle Single Malt, and half a million bottles across its portfolio by 2023.
This release has been many years in the making as the distillery released a series of batched single malts and single pot still whiskeys since the first whiskey in the distillery matured in late 2015.
This new release will allow the distillery offer a consistently available whiskey, building on the success of releases to date.
This is the first whiskey released by the distillery after the sad passing of General Manager and Dingle Ambassador Mary Ferriter in December, 2020. Mary traveled the world flying the flag for the distillery and the town of Dingle and would be thrilled to see this important milestone reached for her beloved distillery. If you’d like to listen to our interview with Mary early last year, you’ll gain some insight into the passion and love she had for her work and the town.
