A family-owned business, Boann Distillery was born and believed in by Patrick and Marie Cooney, who have been joined in the enterprise by their family; Sally-Anne whose creation the gin is, Celestine, Peter, Patrick and James.
With botanicals foraged from the Cooney orchards, and a wealth of experience in the drinks industry, Silks Irish Dry Gin can truly be described as a true family creation.
Silks Irish Dry Gin is distilled by hand in small batches in a 500-litre custom “Bennet” copper pot still.
To create this wonderful Irish gin, the 14 distinct botanicals are macerated for 24 hours. Steeping the traditional botanicals for a day before distillation ensures this gin is fresh, bright, and balanced.
It is then slow distilled with vapour infusion. This allows for the more subtle underlying flavours of the signature Irish botanicals to come through.
Each distillation is non-chill filtered and cut back with Boann Distillery’s own deep well water before bottling.
