S2 EP46 Glendalough: Whiskey from Ireland's Valley of Two Lakes

This week's guest on Spirits of Whisk(e)y is Donal O'Gallachoir, Co-Owner & US National Brand Manager at Ireland's Glendalough Distillery, in County Wicklow, just south of Dublin. Founded by five friends, including Donal, with a mutual love of Irish whiskey and Irish lore, the distillery is located in a narrow glacial valley—"Glendalough" is Irish for "the valley of two lakes"—in the Wicklow Mountains, the historical and spiritual home of the legendary St. Kevin, whose image graces each and every bottle of award-winning whiskey, gin, and poitín it produces. After the interview, let your taste buds run wild as Chef Louise Leonard discusses pairing Glendalough's Seven-Year Single Malt finished in Porter casks with a whiskey- and beer-fortified Venison Hunter's Stew topped with a Sorrel Chimichurri. St. Kevin approved!  Check us out on EatsDrinksTV.
