The Pearse Lyons Distillery last night officially launched the Ha’penny Spirits range of handcrafted, small batch distilled spirits at an event in the Gin Palace, next to the Ha’penny Bridge in Dublin.

The range, inspired by the iconic Ha’penny Bridge which is recognised throughout the world as a symbol of our inimitable and charismatic capital city, includes Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin, Ha’penny Rhubarb Gin and Ha’penny Whiskey.

Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin is a small-batch, pot distilled gin featuring 13 expertly selected botanicals including Geranium, Dandelion, Lavender and Blackberry – all of which would have been growing in the nearby Phoenix Park in Victorian times when the bridge was built. Ha’penny is a well-rounded Gin with a slightly citrusy floral aroma and a lingering sweetness. It can be consumed neat with a drop of water but is best served with a slice of lemon and sprig of mint with a premium tonic water.  RRP €39.99

Ha’penny Rhubarb Gin
Ha’penny Rhubarb is a refreshing, distinctively pink small-batch pot distilled gin featuring the finest Irish rhubarb alongside 13 expertly selected botanicals. Ha’penny Rhubarb is created by taking Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin off the stills and bringing it back to a full-strength bottling ABV of 40% with the juice from freshly pressed rhubarb. It is created using a natural distillation process which avoids the use of any artificial colouring or flavouring.  It can be consumed neat with a drop of water but is best served with a slice of orange with a premium tonic water. RRP €42.99

Ha’penny Whiskey
Ha’penny Whiskey is a 4-10 year old (no age statement), non-chill filtered whiskey composed of 38% malt and 62% grain. It is made from a blend of four different cask types and two styles of whiskey including Port Pipe finished Malt; First fill Bourbon Barrel Malt; Sherry Butt Grain and Double Charred Barrel Grain. Ha’penny Irish whiskey has a rich aromatic nose of oak wood spice with hints of nuttiness. Dried berries with touches of sweet tropical fruits, vanilla and cinnamon. RRP €44.99

Ha’penny Gin Bauble Christmas Set
Ha’penny Spirits has also launched an exclusive Ha’penny Gin Christmas Bauble set which makes the perfect gift for the ginthusiast in your life! Ha’penny is inviting you to get into the spirit of a Dublin Christmas with the limited edition Christmas set featuring two Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin Christmas Baubles, two Ha’penny Rhubarb baubles and a signature Ha’penny Gin glass. The set will be available to purchase from November in Supervalu, Tesco, Dunnes Stores, the Celtic Whiskey Shop and select independent off-licenses around the country. RRP €29.99.
