Sliabh Liag Distillery

The Sliabh Liag Distillery is reclaiming the distilling heritage of Donegal, the illicit distilling heartland of Ireland. Just as Donegal is often thought of as a place apart, the Sliabh Liag brands are intentionally challenging and seek to be very different. The philosophy is simple: liquids and recipes which rely on strong local provenance and are worth talking about; striking designs that challenge conventional codes; to root each brand in a traditional local legend or folk tale.

Rooted in the legends of Donegal, the spirits reflect the long distilling heritage of the Sliabh Liag peninsula. The company have released two multi-award winning spirits, with plans to produce rich smoky whiskeys and an authentic poitín that will stay true to its roots in rural Donegal.

The multi award-winning Silkie Irish Whiskey is an independent bottling inspired by the legends of the Silkie Seals. Silkie is a blend of malt and grain whiskeys, creating an exceptionally smooth liquid, with a fresh yet rich character and elegant finish. A testament to the blenders art.

An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin is the first gin distilled in Co. Donegal. To make An Dúlamán they capture “Draíocht na Farraige” (the magic of the sea) by using five locally harvested varieties of seaweed, as well as six other botanicals. This makes An Dúlamán as unique as the Donegal coast itself.
