Silkie Irish Whiskey (40% ABV) has been produced using a blend of grain and malt whiskeys, some of which have been aged up to 8 years in sherry casks.

Named after the mythical seals that transform into irresistible maidens when ashore Donegal’s beaches, the whiskey has been created by the company’s Managing Director James Doherty.
Commenting on the UK launch, James, said: “As a young lad, my mother used to tell me all about the silkies emerging from the wild Atlantic Ocean and beguiling the men they encountered. We’ve worked hard to create a blended Irish whiskey that is rich, soft and very easy-drinking and are confident drinkers across the UK who encounter our Silkie will be as equally mesmerised by it as the Donegal seafarers of old were by its namesake.”
Sliabh Liag Distillers, also produces An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin at its distillery, near Carrick. Planning has also been submitted for a new distillery at Ardara, co Donegal.
Silkie Irish Whiskey, is now available from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £32.99.
