Dingle presents first core range single malt whiskey

The triple distilled whiskey is completely produced at the Dingle Distillery

 

The Irish Dingle Distillery reached a milestone with the launch of its first core range whiskey: The triple distilled Dingle Irish Single Malt Whiskey will permanently enrich the distillery's portfolio.

50,000 bottles of the Dingle Irish Single Malt Whiskey will hit the domestic and international market this year, including the UK, Germany, France, China and the US as Dingle's key markets. The annual production of the Dingle Single Malt is to be increased to 100,000 bottles by 2023; in addition, there will be another half a million bottles from the rest of the Dingle portfolio.

61% of the Dingle Single Malt Whiskey was matured in PX sherry casks and 39% in first fill ex-bourbon barrels. It's predomonantly batched from six to seven-year-old whiskey that was handcrafted at Dingle Distillery. The distillery uses their own water source at a depth of 240 meters. The whiskey was bottled at 46.3% ABV. The distillery doesn’t use chill-filtration and the whiskey is bottled at natural colour.

100% Dingle Whiskey

“Quality has always been at the heart of our DNA at Dingle Distillery, and that remains the case with our Single Malt launch. We are one of few distilleries in Ireland solely producing our own spirit – we don’t buy from or sell to other distilleries. When a customer buys from Dingle, they do so with the reassurance that the spirit is 100% Dingle,“ Elliot Hughes, Managing Director at Dingle Distillery, explains and adds: “ This new core expression will provide the opportunity for the distillery to grow. By adding significant volume to our business, we can open up new markets and broaden our appeal to attract a new type of customer. We’re very excited to present our Dingle Single Malt to the market and look forward to hearing the reaction from Dingle fans and new customers alike.”

Graham Coull, Master Distiller at Dingle Distillery, comments: “Cask quality is hugely important in the production of our Dingle Single Malt, and a key point of differentiation. We use first fill only casks to produce a richer flavour, while the sherry casks with their sweetness help to get the flavour in quickly, providing good body to the liquid. Dingle Single Malt can be enjoyed neat, with ice, or as a mixing spirit for high end cocktails. We hope whiskey lovers will enjoy sampling our new signature product.”
