The Dingle Whiskey Distillery is an independent family-owned business established In 2012, in County Kerry. The founders, Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley had previously set up the Porterhouse Brewing Company and pioneered craft brewing in Ireland in 1996. Their first whiskey release was in 2015. Their Founding Fathers programme in the Dingle distillery, an innovation in the Irish market, gave whiskey lovers the opportunity to invest in the first 500 casks, with options in terms of cask type, sell-back, and maturation period, and each cask carried the investors name. They also produced gin and vodka under the Dingle brand.
The water used in distillation comes from their own well, pumped up from 70 metres below the distillery.
Dingle Single Malt has been matured in PX sherry and bourbon first fill casks, 61% and 39% respectively, and bottled at 46.3% abv. Released in 2021, it has no age statement and is non-chill filtered.
