THE Legendary SILKIE
IRISH WHISKEY

#InspiredByLegend

Childhood holidays in Donegal nurtured a love for the folk tales of the Sliabh Liag peninsula and more importantly a dream for the future possibilities of bringing legitimate distilling to the Donegal Gaeltacht.

The Silkie is the first step in our ambitious journey. While we build our whiskey distillery, we have sourced a blend of malt and grain whiskeys that when blended together deliver a signature soft mouth feel and a silken, easy character.

Inspired by the tales of the mythical Silkie seals of the Donegal coast, The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey a balanced blend of double and triple distilled single malts, soft grain whiskey and a hint of peated malt. It is bottled by hand at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered for a distinctively rich character. Although higher in ABV, The Legendary Silkie is exceptionally smooth with crisp green apple to the fore, ripe red fruits, gentle smoke and an oaky sweetness which gives way to a long lingering finish of gently warming spice.

The Legendary Silkie Irish is the perfect sipping whiskey, enjoy as it is, over ice or in your favourite whiskey cocktail. The signature serve for The Legendary Silkie is the Silkie Rua, Silkie mixed with premium ginger ale over ice and garnished with orange peel.

THE LEGENDARY DARK SILKIE

#InspiredByLegend

The Legendary Dark Silkie Irish Whiskey is the first addition to The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey Collection. We have taken a bold step with Dark Silkie in recreating the taste of Donegal whiskey in the 19th century, which will reintroduce drinkers to the rich smoky peated Irish Whiskey.
Dark Silkie has at its core a triple distilled peated single malt which is matured in sherry casks. This single malt is peated to 55ppm (parts per million) which after the triple distillation results in a phenol level around 22ppm giving a rich sweet smoky flavour. The peated single malt is blended with a double distilled single malt matured in bourbon barrels and soft grain whiskey matured in virgin oak casks.
As with the multi-award winning Silkie Irish Whiskey, Dark Silkie is hand bottled at our distillery in Carrick, County Donegal and in keeping with the strong tradition of storytelling, still prevalent in Donegal today, The Dark Silkie is named after the Silkies of the Donegal coast and has been designed to be savoured by the glow of a warm turf fire, in the later watches of the night.
