Silks Irish Gin
Winner of Best Irish Gin at the Irish Whiskey awards 2022, Silks Irish Dry Gin is a fresh, floral contemporary spirit distilled by hand in small batches.
Conceived by mum-and-daughter beekeepers, Sally-Anne and Marie Cooney of Boann Distillery, the gin uses signature botanicals including honey, apple blossom and elderflower, all hand-foraged from the family’s orchards to produce a contemporary gin with bright citrus and sweet florals on the nose.
A special Christmas gift pack can be purchased for €50 which includes two branded Silks Gin glasses and a jigger. A 70cl bottle retails for €42.95 and both can be purchased on the Boann Distillery website, https://boanndistillery.ie/ for domestic and international delivery.
1848 Apple Brandy
Experience the marriage of two worlds in the form of 1848 Apple Brandy, a unique blend that pays homage to the inaugural flying of the Irish national flag in 1848. This brandy blends the finest elements of France's renowned Calvados Pays D’Auge from Chateau du Breuil in Normandy with Boann's distinctive triple-distilled apple brandy. The result is a harmonious, smooth, and rounded balance with notes of honey, dried fruits, hazelnut, apple, cinnamon, and vanilla.
The Whistler 10-year-old French Oak
The Whistler 10-year-old French Oak offers a unique single malt whiskey that weaves together the best traits of two different species of oak.
The whiskey is matured in American Oak for a full-bodied and honeyed profile, and is then finished in French Oak infused with the finest Bordeaux wine.
The French barrel, having been through the New Era Oak Cask (N.E.O.C.)process, provides a virgin oak base for further maturation, infusing the whiskey with a ‘New Oak’ style spice that works in harmony with notes of dried fruits.
It retails for €75 for a 70cl bottle and can be purchased from the Boann Distillery website, www.boanndistillery.ie
The Whistler 16-year-old Palo Cortado “El Misterioso”
At the top end of the range is the single malt 16-year-old Whistler “El Misterioso”, elegantly presented in a striking red single bottle presentation case.
First matured in second fill bourbon barrels for fourteen years, this unique triple distilled Irish Whiskey was then finished in rare Palo Cortado sherry casks for two years.
It retails for €165 for a 70cl bottle and can be purchased from the Boann Distillery website, www.boanndistillery.ie
