A Rose Fizz For Mom

May 1, 2024

The perfect Mother’s Day brunch sip? For us, it’s a refreshing cocktail made with Glendalough Wild Rose Gin—a fresh, rose-petal gin that was first made to honour head distiller Ciaran “Rowdy” Rooney’s mother Rose, at his little brother’s wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit. Carefully tended flowers from her rose garden are vapour distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavours and give it its lovely pink hue. —Vita Daily
