The Whistler P.X. I Love You is part of the award-winning Whistler range of Irish whiskey from Meath-based Boann distillery.
Comprising 100% malted barley, this single malt Irish whiskey undergoes a meticulous aging process, beginning in ex-bourbon barrels that impart a complex and rich flavour profile.
It derives its distinctive character and name from the Spanish Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry casks in which it is then finished for nine months.
Priced at €59.50 for a 70cl bottle, P.X. I Love You can be ordered online from Boann Distillery’s website, boanndistillery.ie, delivery within 2-3 days.
Picking up an impressive award just last week (Jan 18) for 'Best London Dry Gin' in Ireland at the World Gin awards*, Silks Irish Gin is a fresh and floral spirit hand-distilled in Boann’s specialised 500-litre custom copper pot still. Signature botanicals include apple blossom from the family orchards, honey from its bees and elderflower and hawthorn blossom from local hedgerows.
Boann’s own deep well water is added before bottling, creating a uniquely Irish flavour profile and resulting in a gin that is fresh, bright and impeccably balanced.
A Silks Irish Gin gift pack can be purchased for €49.95, which includes two beautiful branded Silks Gin glasses and a jigger. A 70cl bottle retails for €42.95 and both can be purchased on the Boann Distillery website, boanndistillery.ie for domestic and international delivery within 2-3 days.
