The Silkie Irish Whiskey
THE SILKIE IRISH WHISKEY
County Donegal has a rich tradition of illicit distilling, which is largely lost. The mission at the Sliabh Liag Distillery is to reclaim the distilling heritage of Donegal and build a legacy that everyone can be fiercely proud of. The legends of the Silkie have long been told along the coasts of Donegal - taking on the form of seals in the ocean and irresistibly beautiful women when they come ashore. On the nose, it is fresh and malty, bright notes of green apple and gentle, honeyed butter. On the palate it is soft, exceptionally smooth and elegant, with hints of green apple, honey, orange zest and stem ginger that lead to a gentle finish that melts away.
