The Legendary Silkie
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. 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.
The Silkies is blended for a signature softness; with hints of apple and pear; an easy maltiness, orange zest, hob nob biscuits, and the merest hint of smoke. And to follow is a rich, sweet taste that provides a sublimely gentle finish.

Legendary Dark Silkie
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.
Soft with hints of apple, pipe-tobacco, and a salted caramel sweetness. It develops to dark chocolate licorice and oak wrapped in a warming dry, peat smoked blanket. The finish is warming with smoky malt and peanut butter that melts away.
