An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin is the first gin distilled in Co. Donegal. This super premium gin is distilled less than a mile from the coast, at the foot of Sliabh Liag. To make An Dúlamán, we capture “Draíocht na Farraige” (the magic of the sea) by using five locally harvested varieties of seaweed, as well as six other botanicals. An Dúlamán is bottled at 43.2%, the ABV at which the delicate and complex flavours can best be savoured. It is presented in a dark 50cl bottle, reminiscent of the bottles found along the Donegal coast during the wrecks of the Spanish Armada. Each bottle is wax sealed and the batch number is linked to the lunar phases.
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. An Dúlamán works well with any premium tonic water, especially with lemon tonic or bitter lemon. A dash of elderflower cordial and An Dúlamán topped up with soda water is a tasty alternative.
