Idea

Since 2017, Sliabh Liag Distillers (pronounced “Sleeve League”) has marched on in their mission of reclaiming the distilling heritage of Donegal. A 2020 fundraise exceeded target by 126%, securing phase 1 of Ardara Distillery build.

Located on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, SLD produces soft drinking hard spirits based on the history, terroir and folklore of Donegal. Their new €6m distillery creates distinctive, heavily-peated pot still and single malt whiskeys and savoury maritime gin. The existing Carrick operation bottles and distributes the award-winning range of The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskeys and all other brands. With distribution partners in 40 countries – including 41 states of the USA which accounts for around half the global Irish whiskey market – they have seen a tripling of Silkie unit sales in 2021 (vs 2020).

SLD now want to accelerate their brand growth and plan to increase the distilling capacity at Ardara by 30% in preparation for anticipated future demand for the smoky style of Irish whiskey. They also plan to start building at the Bull Field, which has planning permission for another distillery.

Join their industry-leading team, over 1,200 individual investors, three Irish governmental investors and Asahi Group Holdings who all joined in the last round to become one of their Teaghlach (family) as they aim to scale up their international drinks business.
