One trend we can definitely get on board with is the coveted pink gin phenomenon. We were only too delighted to discover that Glendalough Distillery has gone above and beyond when they created their award-winning Rose Gin.
On the nose, the gin is very aromatic, with bright lemon and blood orange, soft juniper notes and fresh roses. The taste is gentle with distinct rose petal, bright berries, Turkish delight, citrus with a nectar sweetness. The finish is long and floral with rose petals, lingering pink peppercorn and a touch of earthy spices.
It comes as no surprise to us that Glendalough Distillery has been awarded a highly coveted Masters award for their new Rose Gin at this year’s Spirits Business Gin Masters.
Gary McLoughlin, co-founder and Marketing Director of Glendalough Distillery exclaimed, “We are absolutely thrilled with the reaction the Rose Gin has received both home and abroad and now picking up the highest accolade at the Gin Masters is a testament to the quality of this beautifully balanced, flavourful Gin.”
