Although bars all around the world progressively reopen, there is always a moment to be your own bartender and make cocktails at home. With the Glendalough Rose Gin you can prepare a pink cocktail such as the Grapefruit Spritz. Pink gin has had its moments and it still does. If you’re looking for floral, fruity and spicy flavors, pink gin is the way to go.

To make this very special, small-batch Gin we completely rebalance our Wild Gin recipe and redistill it with extra fruit, flowers and spices… and of course a lot of fresh rose petals.

Three varieties of rose are used, the rare and elusive Wild Rose from the Wicklow mountains, large fragrant Heritage Roses, and the ancient prized Damask Rose all come together to make this a naturally pink and very floral gin.

The Glendalough Distillery is an Irish distillery created by a group of friends from Wicklow and Dublin. They al share the same passion: reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. To produce their gins, Glendalough forage wild plants from the Wicklow mountains around the distillery, at The Valle, one of the most beautiful and visited valleys in Ireland.

Every ingredient picked goes fresh into the still within hours of foraging. All the plants are sustainably foraged by one person, every day that the distillery distills.
