The Three Drinkers visited Sliabh Liag during the filming of their Amazon Prime Series. Who would have known that they would end up collaborating and creating a Limited Edition Release? Here’s what they have to say ahead of this exclusive launch ;
“We always had the idea to create a product for every Three Drinkers series we produce,” says Aidy Smith. “Meeting James and Moira, founders of Sliabh Liag Distillers, in episode two of our Ireland show and seeing the amazing work they’d done with wine finishes before, confirmed that they would be the perfect partner to create our own version – and we love the result. Whether sipping neat or creating some signature cocktail serves, it offers the best of both worlds.”
“This whiskey is gorgeously rich and velvety,” continues Helena Nicklin. “James and Moira have captured that wonderful balance of dried fruit spice and moreish salinity topped off with deliciously complex, ripe, red fruit flavours coming from the wine casks. It’s so approachable and easy-drinking, yet with such elegant complexity, you could sit with it for hours.”
“We’re absolutely delighted with how this whiskey has turned out,” says James Doherty from Sliabh Liag Distillers. “Our Silkie with its subtle hint of smoke, takes a finish really well and the Pomerol casks have given a remarkable sweet, spicy and floral overlay to the Legendary Silkie. I’d even go so far as to say that it’s the most successful red wine finish yet…”
