Dingle Distillery


The Dingle Distillery was crafted and conceived by three independent spirits: Oliver Hughes; Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley. It came into being in the cold winter of 2012. Ireland was beginning to come out of the greatest recession in many people’s memory. However unbeknownst to many, the most significant event in the Irish whiskey industry in decades was happening in a tin shed in the town of Dingle, Co. Kerry. Witnessed by few, the first Dingle Whiskey Casks were filled on the 18th of December 2012. Three years and a day later on the 19th of December 2015, one cask, Cask No. 2 was released. We have always had quality over quantity at the forefront of our thoughts. We never had any interest in distilling enormous quantities of bland whiskey. We understand and respect the concept, it just wasn’t for us! We aren’t passionate about bland spirit. We are hugely passionate about flavoursome, well-crafted spirit. To achieve the flavours, we want to achieve in our whiskey, we use three distinctive, hand-crafted copper pot stills to create what we believe is the ultimate Irish whiskey. Their distinctive design, incorporating a boil ball, encourages reflux and has much to do with the remarkable smoothness and purity of our spirit. We use a small, swan neck pot still to achieve our desired effect on our award-winning Gin and Vodka.
