Made using a classic blend of 11 botanicals and wild seasonal forage from the Wicklow mountains. Each of Glendalough’s seasonal gins start with six core botanicals: juniper, coriander, angelica root, orange peel, bitter almond, and orris root.Produced in collaboration with local forager & botanist Geraldine Kavanagh, The Wild Autumn Botanical gin contains locally sourced darred malt, nettle watermint, clover flowers, ground ivy, heather flowers, rosehip, meadowsweet, rosemary, haws, yarrow, blackberries, fraughan berries, damsons sloes, elderberries and crab apples. to give it an invigorating, refreshing palate. It is then distiled in small batches in a Holstein copper still. No more than 3,000 bottles are produced each season and the bottle features an image of the Glendalough countryside, along with the dates of when it was foraged and distilled.On the nose, the Wild Autumn gin is earthy and floral with underlying heather and berry notes. It is robust and powerful on the front with a smooth and rounded touch of sweetness to the fore and subtle hints of clover and spice. The finish is long and smooth with citrus and notes of juniper.

The Glendalough Distillery was set up by five friends from Wicklow and Dublin with a deep passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. In the 18th & 19th centuries there were over 200 licensed distilleries in Ireland and along with countless unlicensed ones produced diverse styles of poitín, whiskey, gin and even absinthe. Until recently that dropped to a small handful. Glendalough Distillery is now part of a revival of this heritage. The idea behind Glendalough Distillery is to make innovative spirits while staying true to the tradition and heritage of our ancestors. Initially we started with the first ever spirit, poitín and since then have moved to whiskey and most recently the release of our seasonal, wild botanical gins
