The Legendary Red Silkie Irish Whiskey

The first in a series of limited-edition releases from The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey Collection, Red Silkie is inspired by the final journey of Donegal nobleman, Red Hugh O’Donnell and is finished in both Rioja and Ribera del Duero wine casks, giving an aromatic sweetness with dry wine notes.

*Limit of two bottles per customer*




The Legendary Red Silkie has returned due to popular demand, this second release of the limited edition Red Silkie follows a sell out release in 2020. The Legendary Red Silkie Irish Whiskey not only draws inspiration from the folklore of Donegal, but of the rich history and heritage of the county. The Legendary Red Silkie has been finished in Rioja and Ribera red wine casks, the Ribera del Duero wine region lies just to the east of the final resting place of Red Hugh O’Donnell at the Castle of Simancas in Spain. Wines from the Ribera region tend to be full bodied with firm tannins while Rioja wines lead with big fruit flavours. This combination of wine cask finishes gives the whiskey extraordinary depth of character, matched with the signature softness of the award-winning Silkie blend.

Tasting Notes


Deep amber


Spicy with a red berry sweetness, strawberry laces, sandal wood, nutmeg and dried apple slices.


Aromatic and sweet, strawberry coulis, marmalade, dried fruit steeping in Earl grey tea, opens to dry wine notes, and oak tannins and maintains a crisp freshness.


Resin sweet followed by a drying wine tannin and a hint of smoke that ebbs away
