The Weekly Cocktail Recipe: ‘The After Dinner Mint’

“An alternative night cap” for St Patrick’s Day, ‘The After Dinner Mint’ features Irish Artisan Dingle Original Gin; distilled with botanicals such as rowan berry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather. The London dry style gin is macerated for 24 hours then cut using the purest water from the distillery’s own well, 240 feet below ground.

Alternatively, the gin can be substituted with Dingle Vodka, teamed with Crème de Menthe, Crème de Cacao Brun and Crème de Cacao blanc. “A grown up take on mint choc chip”.
