Under soft moonlight, our mermaid comes ashore as a Silkie, at the secluded Silver Strand, on the Donegal Coast. Gently shedding her seal coat, she reveals her human form – a beautiful dark haired maiden with deep, soulful eyes. Dancing along the sand, revelling in the freedom she enjoys in both worlds, she is unaware of the young fisherman captivated by her beauty. She turns, their eyes meet and their love is set. Our Silkie makes her home with her fisherman but the sea restlessly calls to her drawing her back to the water.

The call becomes so strong that she must leave her love and return to the ocean forever.

The Legendary

A marvellous smooth, fruity and aromatic Irish blend. Made with a combination of double distilled, triple distilled, peated malt, and grain whiskey. The maturation is also a blend of Bourbon, Sherry and Virgin. 85 % is triple distilled and 35% is from virgin barrels. This blend brings out the best from Ireland. The name comes from old tales of shape-shifting sea creatures that transform into irresistible human-like beings.

The Legendary
Midnight Silkie

The smokiest addition to Sliabh Liag Distillers’ Silkie range of Irish whiskey, named The 

Legendary Midnight Silkie Irish Whiskey! With 35% of the blend triple-distilled peated malt at its heart, it’s a rich, smoky affair, made up of single malts aged in five different cask types: oloroso sherry, bourbon, red wine, virgin oak, and imperial stout casks. A harmony of rich flavours is imparted from the cask medley, with lots of dried fruit, chocolate, citrus, and of course the smoke notes. A rich and smooth Irish Single Malt. 

Non chilled and filtered and natural colour.

The Legendary
Dark Silkie

Sliabh Liag Distillers has shown its smoky side with this Irish blend, dubbed The Legendary Dark Silkie! Taking inspiration from 19th century Donegal whiskey, a triple distilled peated single malt is at the core of this expression, peated to about 22ppm and matured in sherry casks. It’s then blended with a bourbon-matured single malt as well as a grain whiskey having been rested in virgin oak. The result is a fruity, subtly smoky and dry bottling which is sure to convert Irish whiskey lovers to a hint of peat!

Flaherty also worked at various Scottish distilleries. County Down in the east of Northern Ireland has always been considered a melting pot of Scottish and Irish culture, so Hinch Whiskey combines Flaherty’s experience in both the Scottish and Irish Whiskey industries.
