Enjoy Glendalough Responsibly. Irish Whisky and Gin. ©. Imported by Mark Anthony Crafted Spirits, Chicago, IL
This fresh, rose-petal gin was first made to honor our head distiller’s mom, Rose at his little brother’s wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit - literally.
Carefully-tended flowers from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavors and give it its lovely pink hue.
Nose: Very aromatic, with soft juniper notes, perfumed with fresh rose.
Taste: Gentle sweet spice, turkish delight with hint of citrus.
Finish: Long, floral, rose petals.
Although we love it in a dry martini, or in a G&T garnished with a wedge of lime and fresh mint, lately we’ve been having it in a Rose Gin Spritz cocktail.
2oz of Rose Gin poured into an ice-filled glass.
Add 1 oz of fresh lime juice.
Top off with a grapefruit soda.
Garnish with a grapefruit wheel and freshly torn and slapped sprig of mint.
The grapefruit enhances the cirtusy notes of fresh pine shoots and wood sorrel in the gin, while the mint leaves complement those leafy, and floral notes.
This one is dangerously good. You’ve been warned!
