Note from the Chef
"When choosing an Irish Whiskey to enjoy with the main course, Slane’s perfect balance of flavour sets it apart from other Irish whiskies. Its boldness pairs perfectly with fried chicken or lamb loin chops, while its smoothness and subtlety perfectly pairs with more delicate seafood. Whether in a highball, a Manhattan, or simply on the rocks, Slane’s flavour profile shines alongside many different cuisine styles."
