DESCRIPTION
  • It has been over 175 years since a (legal) distillery graced the rugged shores of County Donegal, but thanks to Sliabh Liag (pronounced SLEEVE LEAGUE) Distillers, Donegal is back in action. Positioned along the peninsula that juts out into the cold Atlantic Ocean in north-western Ireland, Sliabh Liag are a distillery to watch. Currently producing a Gin and a blended Irish Whiskey, their expansion is underway with plans to run their own new-make spirit in 2020. Based on the quality of their current offerings, they are bound for a bright future.

    According to Irish lore, Silkies were mythological creature that would appear along the shoreline in the shape of seals. But every so often, they would leave the water and come ashore, shedding their skin and transforming into unbelievably beautiful women. This smooth and gentle whiskey is as beguiling as the Silkies of legend. Although it's not distilled at Sliabh Liag, it is a crafted blend of carefully selected barrels, while they wait eagerly for their own distillery to be built. It's damn good, too.
