SLANE SPECIAL EDITION
Slane Special Edition is inspired by Lord Henry Conyngham
and the first Slane Castle Concert that took place on August 16, 1981. Now more
than 40 years later, Henry’s trailblazing idea lives on both through the
concert and Slane Irish Whiskey.
Slane Special Edition uses Slane Irish Whiskey’s signature triple casked blend
with an increased amount of Virgin Casks to go with the Seasoned and Sherry
Casks. The abv is 45% playing off of the iconic 45rpm record.
The Legacy of ‘81 is a tribute to Lord Henry Conyngham’s
vision 40 years ago to bring Ireland together by throwing the country’s biggest
rock concert in 1981 on his front lawn of Slane Castle, the family’s home since
the 18th century. His vision lives on having played host to some of the world’s
biggest music acts of today and tomorrow.
This whiskey amps up the flavour that comes from Slane
Irish Whiskey’s signature triple casked method using extra Virgin Oak barrels
to blend with Seasoned and Sherry Barrels. The extra Virgin Oak Barrels dial up
the toasted oak and vanilla notes found in our core Slane blend to deliver a
rich, complex whiskey. The Legacy of ‘81 is a whiskey that can stand on its
own, on the rocks, or sing through a cocktail
Here’s to always breaking new ground and honoring the legacy.
