Sliabh Liag The Silkie Irish Whiskey

Gold: 2018 The Drinks Business Irish Whisky Master
Double Gold: 2018 China Wine and Spirits Awards
Silver: 2019 Bartenders’ Brand Awards

The legends of the Silkie have long been told along the coast of Donegal. If you’re lucky, this mythological creature is said to appear in the form of a seal, but once ashore it sheds its skin to transform into an irresistible woman. The award-winning Silkie Irish Whiskey is an independent bottling inspired by these sirens of the sea. To be clear, Sliabh Liag does not distil The Silkie. Instead, it’s a sourced, bespoke blend of Irish malt and grain whiskies (ranging from four-eight years old) created to tide the distillery over until their Ardara facility is operational. As such, The Silkie is probably not really representative of the Sliabh Liag style of the future. These will be different beasts—triple-distilled and peated spirits made in the tradition of Donegal’s pre-industrial, smoke-rich Irish whiskies.

Having said that, this is a beautiful example of the Irish blended style—an exceptionally smooth, tender liquid with an array of complex yet inviting characters like malt, green apple, warmed honey and flecks of bright orange zest, digestive biscuits, brioche, butterscotch and stem ginger on the gently warming close.
Classic yet genuinely interesting as well, we think The Silkie is a very exciting addition to the Irish whiskey scene.
