About the company

Sliabh Liag Distillers have set out to reclaim the rich distilling heritage of County Donegal. The company produces three spirits at their An Dúlamán Gin Distillery in Carrick as well as bottling their blended Irish Whiskey, The Legendary Silkie. The next step on their ambitious journey is to complete building of the €6m Ardara Distillery, where they will distil pot still and malt whiskeys which will be peated to reflect the type of whiskeys historically made in Donegal in days gone by. Sliabh Liag Distillers export their spirits to 4 continents and continue to grow annually.
