But whiskey making is the final goal.

Plans to build in a field outside of Carrick with stunning views over Donegal Bay to the distant Sligo shore beyond had to be shelved.

Fortunately that hasn’t deterred the owners and site clearance has began in Ardara, a picturesque village a few miles up the road.

Along with their own An Dúlamán Gin, Sliabh Liag have also released The Legendary Silkie Blended Irish Whiskey in advance of construction.

Tours are already available at the Gin Distillery.  See Sliabh Liag website here.

Casks Away are looking forward to the Grand Opening of Sliabh Liag Whiskey Distillery in Ardara.
