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 our gin 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 we 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.

To ensure that An Dúlamán maintains its characteristic complexity and softness we have learned that Méabh (our still) likes a low ABV in the pot, and to run in a narrow temperature band to manage the delicate seaweeds. To top it off we take a divilishly narrow cut.

In late 2019 we 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 here

AN DÚLAMÁN
SANTA ANA

An Dúlamán Santa Ana Armada Strength Gin is a barrel-aged, navy strength expression of An Dúlamán and is the first Irish navy strength gin to come to the market. As with the classic An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin, Santa Ana is inextricably linked to the stunning Donegal coastline. Its name comes from La Duquesa Santa Ana, a formidable Andalusian ship which was lost off Loughros Mor, Ardara, in Philip II’s ill-fated Spanish Armada’s attempt to invade England in 1588.

Aged in Rioja wine casks from the home region of the Santa Ana’s commander, the gin takes on a beautiful rose gold hue and a slight sweetness which complements the rich umami notes of An Dúlamán Gin. After aging, Santa Ana is bottled at “Armada” strength of 57% ABV.

Enjoyed neat or over ice as a beautifully complex sipping gin. Pair with a premium tonic for an upgraded G&T, or with a simple dash of soda water over ice to relish the gin without any added flavours. A simple Martini is the perfect vehicle to showcase the strength and subtle notes of Santa Ana.
