Rosé season is always in full swing, regardless of the weather or season it calls for a pretty pink drink, so try these bottles for a refreshing tipple anytime and anywhere.
Rosy and infused with real, romantic wild roses, Glendalough Rose Gin is the perfect way to step up this year. Open up your palate with this rosé Gin you might never have tried otherwise.
Each batch is made by distiller Ciarán Rooney (Rowdy) using fresh roses from his late mother’s garden as a homage to her and their unique relationship. This floral gin is created by vapor distilling carefully cultivated flowers from an Irish rose garden with wild roses and herbs from the Wicklow mountains. The gin is further infused with extra roses after distillation to intensify the flavors and give it its gorgeous pink tint.
- Nose: aromatic, with soft juniper notes, perfumed with fresh rose

- Finish: Long, floral, rose petals
