An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin
An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin is the first gin distilled in Co. Donegal. Dúlamán is the name of an Irish folk song which relates a conversation between two seaweed collectors (it is also the name of one of the gin’s seaweeds). 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 make An Dúlamán, Sliabh Liag Distillers capture “Draíocht na Farraige” (the magic of the sea) by using five locally harvested varieties of seaweed, as well as six other botanicals. This makes An Dúlamán as unique as the Donegal coast itself.
In late 2019, Sliabh Liag Distillers launched a very special expression of An Dúlamán – An Dúlamán Santa Ana Armada Strength Gin, Ireland’s first Navy Strength Gin. Bottled at 57% and barrel-aged in Rioja casks, this unique gin will be a limited release. Find out more about An Dúlamán Santa Ana Armada Strength Gin
