Assaranca Vodka is a soft quadruple distilled grain spirit, with the fourth and final distillation taking place with rowan berries in the pot and hand-picked local gorse flowers in the flavour basket. Rowan and gorse are two native plants that shower the landscapes of Donegal with a bright splash of colour at certain times of the year. While Rowan Trees bear their bright red berries in late summer and early autumn, gorse (or whinbushes) flower almost all year round. Their brilliant yellow flowers have the unmistakable scent of coconut which wafts lazily across bogs and mountains on warm summer days. Gorse and rowan can both be found at the gorge which leads to the falls at Assaranca, Co. Donegal.
