Lúnasa Single Malt, the fourth instalment in Dingle Distillery’s Wheel of the Year series, pays homage to the rich traditions and folklore surrounding Lúnasa. This limited-edition release encapsulates the spirit of the festival and pays respects to the mother of Lugh, a god of Irish mythology, who is said to have died of exhaustion after preparing Ireland’s fields for farming. The Wheel of the Year collection follows the rhythm of the seasons, equinoxes, and solstices, which will culminate in a special ninth release to honour Wren’s Day—an esteemed event in Dingle’s culture and heritage.

This exceptional whiskey pays tribute to our cultural heritage, and we cannot wait for whiskey enthusiasts to experience it.”
