Glendalough Irish Gin unveils new bottle design for the Irish and international market
Glendalough Distillery, and its parent company Mark Anthony Brands International, has today announced the international launch of an elegant new bottle design for Glendalough Irish Gin.
Glendalough Irish Gin is progressively crafted with fresh, wild botanicals, hand-picked by the distillery’s full-time Forager Geraldine Kavanagh to capture the purest expression of the rich land of Glendalough. The new bottle design takes inspiration from this unique story of people and place and pays homage to the bountiful, ancient valley of Glendalough.
The new bottle design features St. Kevin, the founder of Glendalough’s monastery, standing as a strong, but gentle guardian instilling his legacy of reverence for the land he discovered. Geraldine Kavanagh’s considerate approach to foraging and care for the land is preserved on the new bottle design with an embossed woven pattern sitting at the base, representing the handwoven basket with which she forages.
From the foot of the bottle, the wild botanicals that Geraldine forages are embossed around the bottle reflecting the ingredients such as sorrel, elderflower and fir that create the distinct notes of Glendalough Wild Botanical Irish Gin. Among the bottle’s embossed features, revert nods to Glendalough’s ancient past can also be found including the Monastery Archway, Seven Churches and Deer Stone.
Speaking on the launch of the new look for Glendalough Irish Gin, Enda O’Sullivan, vice president of spirits at Mark Anthony Brands International said: “It is with great pleasure we introduce our elegant new bottle design for Glendalough Irish Gin to the world stage. At Glendalough Distillery, we are passionate about crafting liquids with a profound sense of place and we aim to capture the purest expression of Glendalough in our luxury Irish gins.
“We have created a bottle which tells the story of Glendalough Irish Gin and the Irish landscape it is born of so now, not only will the depth of flavour in our gins transport you to the wild beauty of the Wicklow, but our new elegant new bottle will too. We are telling the proud story of this land and its people through this new bottle and showcasing it to the world.”
The new design of Glendalough Gin was created in collaboration with Here Design.
