The Dingle Whiskey Distillery, located in the old sawmills just outside Dingle, Co. Kerry, was Ireland’s first purpose built distillery in over 100 years. It was founded by three independent spirits, Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley, who had a vision to bring an artisan craft distillery to the picturesque town of Dingle. The first spirit trickled from the stills in December 2012, as the country was beginning to come out of the worst recession in many people’s memory. Three years and a day later on the 19th December 2015, one cask, Cask No. 2 was released. This was followed by the release of Dingle Whiskey, Batch No. 2, in November 2016, which showcased multiple whiskies with different flavour profiles. Batch No.2 included the release of Dingle Pot Still Whiskey, a historic step for the distillery, and Irish Whiskey, making The Dingle Whiskey Distillery only the second distillery on the island of Ireland to produce a Pot Still. Batch 3 is the latest release from the Dingle Whiskey Distillery and featured a Single Malt Whiskey and a Cask Strength Whiskey matured in meticulously selected Bourbon and Port Casks. As well as regular releases of small batch whiskey, the Dingle Whiskey Distillery also produces the mutli-award winning Dingle Gin and Dingle Vodka. Dingle Gin uses a unique blend of locally sourced botanicals for a taste of the Kerry landscape. Dingle Vodka is unusual in that it is quintuple distilled, making it exceptionally smooth. Dingle Gin and Dingle Vodka were awarded the titles of Best Irish Gin and Best Irish Vodka at the 2017 Irish Whiskey Awards.
