Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Irish Gin is dedicated to the 16th Century Irish pirate queen, also known as Granuaile, born into Irish nobility in Co. Mayo in 1530.
Featuring a total of 14 botanicals, Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Irish Gin is made with defining aromatics from the West of Ireland including heather, wild thyme, red clover, blackthorn, fraughan and rock samphire. The gin is infused with the bell-shaped purple flowers of this resilient evergreen which grows in abundance along the Atlantic Coast. A symbol of love, luck and protection, heather is wild and hardy but beautiful – the perfect choice to embody such a complex character and the spirit of Grace, Irish pirate queen. Rounded and balanced, the predominance of heather gives Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Irish Gin its wonderfully fresh, floral finish.
Responsible for the recipe and precise selection of botanicals in Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Irish Gin is world renowned spirits expert, Cellar Master & Blender, Paul Caris. According to Caris, “Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Irish Gin is a true, traditional style gin made with modern, distillation technology to deliver true taste intensity.”
