To capture the dry tang of a sea breeze over our 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. A dash of elderflower cordial and An Dúlamán topped up with soda water is a tasty alternative. 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.
