Silks is Boann’s first distilled gin, composed with 14 distinct botanicals which are macerated for 24 hours before slow-distillation with vapour infusion in a 500 Litre custom ‘Bennett’ copper pot still.

The signature botanicals have been hand-foraged from the Cooney family apple orchards at the foot of the Hill of Tara – Apple blossom from the trees, honey from the beehives and Elderflower from the hedgerows.

“This unique combination of botanicals and distillation technique creates a floral-forward contemporary style gin with bright citrus aromas,” said Boann Distillery’s Marketing Director Sally-Anne Cooney.

Silks hand-distilled gin is perfect served in a classic G&T with a slice of red Apple and superb in a classic Martini.

Its rich and silky smooth on the palate with Orange peel, fresh blossom and notes of Apple complementing the Juniper backbone.

The gin is distributed exclusively in Ireland by Barry and Fitzwilliam.
