St. Patrick’s Distillery’s goal is to produce spirits of character, taste and personality. Most of the spirits people consume today are produced from grains, as they contain high levels of easily converted sugars. St Patrick’s has instead chosen potato as the alcohol base for their vodka and gins because of its unique natural sweetness, and its amazing versatility.
As potato has just 20% available dry starch matter, this makes the process much more expensive, but more than compensates for the extra time and effort with its unique taste, aroma and smoother mouth-feel. Using small batch artisanal methods, St. Patrick’s produces a 100% potato vodka and a variety of potato gins.
The added bonus of a grain free distillation is that it’s also naturally gluten-free. For whiskey lovers and connoisseurs, they also offer St. Patrick’s Distillery Oak Aged Irish Whiskey. Distilled, matured, blended and bottled in Cork.
