An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin
A brand new Irish Gin from the Sliabh Liag Distillery. An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin came from an inspired moment on Muckross Head, and is a remarkable gin by any stretch. It is the very essence of Donegal and uniquely captures the drama and magic of the sea. The bottle refers to the maritime heritage of the area and the Armada wrecks off the coast.
To make An Dúlamán, Sliabh Liag captures “Draíocht na Farraige” (the magic of the sea) by using five locally harvested seaweeds as well as six other botanicals. To ensure that An Dúlamán maintains its characteristic complexity and softness they have learned that Méabh (their still) likes a low ABV in the pot, and to run in a narrow temperature band to manage the delicate seaweeds. To top it off they take a devilishly narrow cut.
A beautifully well rounded gin with plentiful notes of the sea, soft juniper and a buttery sweetness
Alcohol Volume: 43%
Tasting Notes: The palate has incredibly bright and soft juniper to the fore, and as it subsides, An Dúlamán’s complexity is revealed in rich umami, brisk salt, zest and then a buttery oyster smoothness with hints of chestnut and firm tannin. Given time, sweet notes of peach ebb to a comforting warmth.
