Manufacturing

How is dingle whisky produced?Dingle is a classic Irish distillery using a wash still, an intermediate still and a spirit still.

Surprisingly, in addition to the fermentation tanks, the mash tun is made of European oak, instead of the far more common stainless steel. The distillery mainly uses ex-bourbon, but also a few ex-sherry casks, as well as ex-Madeira and ex-port wine casks.

History

Put simply The distillery has no real history of which to speak. Happily whisky is nothing more than distilled beer - and if you can produce good beer, you should also get good whisky, right? The Porterhouse brewery also thought so and managed to fill the first New Make in 2012 in its newly founded Dingle distillery.

A former mill, which first processed grain and later wood, serves as the home of the new distillery. The old rusty water wheel reminds of the former function of the place. In July 2016, co-founder Oliver Hughes died unexpectedly at the age of 57.
