Sliabh Liag Distillery is the culmination of two separate visions to build a distillery within sight of the cliffs of Sliabh Liag. Both plans began quite separately, 1000’s of miles apart, but with similar aims to build a whiskey business and enhance opportunity, employment and tourism on the Sliabh Liag peninsula.
It takes a team effort to bring a project of this ambition to reality and the Sliabh Liag Distillery is no different. The original Meitheal (team) was made of James and Moira Doherty, Margaret Cunningham, James Keith, Oliver Hughes and Údarás na Gaeltachta.
Sadly Oliver died in 2016 and his wife Helen remains committed to the distillery and is represented by their son Elliot. Margaret has left the project and sold her interest and Domenic De Lorenzo and John Davidson have invested and joined the team as non-executive directors, John as our Chairman.
