An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin 43.2% 500ml

An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin is the first gin distilled in County Donegal. Dúlamán is the name of an Irish folk song that relates a conversation between two seaweed collectors. The coast around Sliabh Liag holds an extraordinary bounty for such foragers with their centuries-old knowledge of harvesting and harnessing the qualities of these natural products. An Dúlamán bottles are reminiscent of those 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. To capture the dry tang of a sea breeze over the wild coastline, An Dúlamán contains five seaweeds including Sweet Kombu, Dulse, Pepper Dulse, Dulaman and superfood Carrageen Moss, bringing an authentic and innovative "umami" twist to the gin category.

Bottling at 43.2% is the best ABV at which delicate and complex flavours can be savoured. 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 and then a buttery oyster smoothness with hints of chestnut and firm tannin. Given time, sweet notes of Turkish delight ebb to a comforting warmth. An Dúlamán works well with any premium tonic water, especially with lemon tonic or bitter lemon. Classic gin cocktails are a must try with An Dúlamán - our own favourite is the Negroni, the soft earthy tones of An Dúlamán stand up to the bitterness of Campari, and of course it makes a mighty martini, with a good splash of vermouth.
