The Glendalough Distillery incorporates the story of St. Kevin and one of Ireland’s most beautiful sites: the ancient glacial valley and lake at Glendalough in Wicklow, on the country’s scenic east coast. It was started by five friends who were passionate about creating something new and different in the Irish whiskey market.

Its distinguished 7 year old single malt whiskey references the story of St. Kevin through the bottles’ elegant label design. St. Kevin made the valley famous by building seven churches there throughout seven years of harsh trials, in search of spiritual enlightenment. Glendalough’s premium whiskey is a 13 year old, matured an extra year beyond the standard 12, in honour of the number worn by rugby player and Irish sporting hero Brian O’Driscoll.

Glendalough’s malt whiskeys are made with natural spring water, as well as being non-chill filtered and bottled at 46%.

This very special Glendalough 13 Year Old whiskey is the first release to be finished in Mizunara Japanese oak barrels after first being matured in bourbon barrels. It comes to you with hints of spice, citrus, apricot and a touch of vanilla and creaminess from the oak.
