With additional notes of vanilla, banana, butterscotch, dried stone fruits and subtle baking spice, each sip takes you on a sensory journey, uncovering the subtle layers of this whiskey’s complex character.

Distilled since the 6th century, Irish Whiskey is one of the oldest – and most revered – spirits in the world. To be classified as Irish Whiskey, it must be distilled and matured on the Island of Ireland, and produced from a mash of that must contain malted cereals, but can also contain whole grains of other cereals. Within these boundaries, there are 4 distinct types of whiskey produced in Ireland. Slane Irish Whiskey wasn’t the first whiskey to come to Slane. The fertile soil and pure water of the Boyne Valley attracted many budding whiskey craftsmen. But over time, this ancient art was all but lost. In 2015, the opening of our distillery brought with it a revival of Boyne Valley whiskey, where we blend these old traditions with modern innovation
