The Award-Winning Irish Whiskey Producer Celebrates the U.S. Launch of its NEW Flagship Dingle Expression, a Single Malt Made Entirely from its own Spirit
SAN FRANSISCO (December 14, 2022): After years in the making, Dingle Distillery is proud to announce the U.S. debut of its highly anticipated launch of Dingle Single Malt Whiskey, its first core expression. Comprised of malt whiskey that has been matured in ex-Bourbon (39%), and PX Sherry Casks (61%), for six – seven years, the Dingle Distillery is one of the few Irish Distilleries to produce a core single malt created entirely from its own spirit.
“Quality has always been at the heart of our DNA at Dingle Distillery, and that remains the case with our Dingle Single Malt launch,” says Elliot Hughes, Managing Director at Dingle Distillery. “We are one of few distilleries in Ireland solely producing our own spirit – we don’t buy from or sell to other distilleries, and this exceptional quality is evident with the launch of our first core spirit.”
A triple distilled, non-chill filtered whiskey bottled at 46.3% ABV, Dingle Master Distiller, Graham Coult, used first fill only casks to produce a richer flavor, while the sweetness from the Sherry casks helped to get the flavor in quickly, producing a full-bodied spirit. The Master Distiller Tasting notes are as follows:
“A flavor profile including apples, caramel, and raisins. On the nose, Dingle Single Malt Whiskey offers a combination of lime zest and mint, while the finish delivers a honey sweetness and mixed spice aftertaste. “
An initial run of 50,000 bottles of Dingle Single Malt Whiskey has been produced for domestic and export markets, with an ambition to produce 100,000 bottles per year by the end of 2023. Imported by Hotaling & Co. the Dingle Single Malt Whiskey is available in 15 markets as well as online via Reservebar.com, with an SRP of $100 per 750ml bottle.
