Gaslamp Distillery, a new micro-distillery based in Rathcoole Dublin is founded by brothers Eanna Burke, Head Distiller & Cian Burke, facilities manager. Passionate about homebrewing since 2011, Eanna, a former Mechanical and software engineer decided to pursue his hobby on a professional level. With the help of Cian, who was completing his degree in Sustainable Electric Power at LIT at the time, the dream was made a reality and the distillery was built.
All aspects of operations from mashing, fermentation and distillation take place on-site and the pair are keen to innovate and improve at all times. Their core product, the Old Tom Gin is made from a malted barley base spirit with 11 fresh and dried botanicals resulting in a slightly sweet, malty taste. The spirit is then rested in oak before being hand bottled.
