Five years after the release of their first triple casked blend, Slane Irish Whiskey has now announced the launch of Slane Special Edition, to celebrate 40 years of the company's trailblazing music history.

The long-awaited third release from Slane Distillery was created as a tribute to Lord Henry Conyngham, and his vision to unite Ireland in 1981 by throwing the country's biggest rock concert, which welcomed 80,000 music lovers to his front lawn at Slane Castle. Now many decades on, that vision stays alive, with the venue playing host to countless events.

Slane Special Edition amps up the flavour that comes from Slane Irish Whiskey’s signature triple casked method by using extra virgin oak casks blended with seasoned barrels and Spanish sherry casks. The liquid has been bottled at 45% ABV, versus the Slane core blend at 40% ABV. The 45% ABV is another nod to Slane’s music legacy with a neat riff on the 45 rpm record single - a format that changed music forever.

The blend has a nose of bold toasted oak and vanilla spice notes found in Slane Irish Whiskey’s core blend to deliver a rich, complex whiskey with a warm, lingering finish. Slane Special Edition is a whiskey that can stand on its own, on the rocks, or sing through a cocktail.


To celebrate the release, Slane has teamed up with Sunday Brunch mixologist, Pritesh Mody, to create a delicious cocktail especially for St. Patrick's Day (March 17th, 2022). Find out how to make it for yourself below:

Slane Special Edition is available to buy nationwide with a recommended retail price of £36 for a 700ml bottle. It's available from Amazon, Master of Malt, The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop, Hard to Find Whisky and The Whisky World, as well as at Slane Distillery.
