Sliabh Liag Distillery will launch An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin this weekend – a unique craft gin inspired by the Donegal coast and the ingredients found around the Sliabh Liag peninsula.The official launch of this unique gin takes place on Friday 27th October with an event celebrating “draíocht na farraige”, the magic of the sea. Sliabh Liag Distillery is Donegal’s first distillery in 175 years and the directors, James and Moira Doherty, are passionate about creating brands inspired by local lore and legends, rooted in the Donegal Gaeltacht, where the new distillery will be built on the slopes in the lee of Sliabh Liag Cliffs.James believes the new distillery will boost employment in the local community, while also bringing more visitors to the area.“We have 5 employees today and with construction on the main Sliabh Liag Distillery, we will create employment for up to 40 people once the distillery and visitor centre is fully operational. The Sliabh Liag Cliffs are Donegal’s main visitor attraction with almost 200,000 visitors each year.”Directors of the Sliabh Liag Distillery, James and Moira Doherty, who will launch their unique An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin this weekend.James continues: “Drinks tourism in Ireland is an area of huge growth and there’s been an explosion of craft gin in recent years. Construction of the new distillery will begin next year. The company has a portfolio of four spirits brands and has already launched its first expression, an independent bottling of Irish Whiskey named The Silkie.” The inspiration for An Dúlamán came about during a trip foraging seaweed in Donegal, as James explains: “My wife Moira was out picking Dulse with my aunt at Muckross Head close to Killybegs and she asked the question: ‘has anyone ever put this into alcohol?’. The seeds of an idea were born that day and we’re delighted to be able to share the result this weekend.”“An Dúlamán is made using only the finest Donegal Sweet Kombu (Sugar Kelp), Dillisk (Dulse), Pepper Dulse, Carrageen Moss and Channel Wrack. Pepper Dulse, sometimes known as the “truffle of the sea” is the shyest of these coastal treasures and can only be harvested on a full moon when the tides and the wild Atlantic work in our favour,” James adds.“Once collected, each botanical is treated on its own merits. Some are dried to intensify their flavours and others frozen to capture the delicate umami essence.“Following this, some of the ingredients go into Méabh, our hand beaten copper pot still and we add the more challenging ones into the flavour basket to be distilled into An Dúlamán, Irish Maritime Gin. The result of this devilishly narrow cut is a taste that captures fresh juniper, an umami richness and the dry tang of sea breeze,” says James.An Dúlamán is presented in a dark bottle reminiscent of those found on the Armada wrecks along the coast of Donegal. The bottle’s labelling in drawn by a local artist and inspired by the Book of Kells. Each bottle is wax sealed and the batch number is linked to the lunar phases.The gin’s name comes from the traditional song Dúlamán na binne bhuí, made famous by Altan, Clannad and other famous Irish singers and songwriters. James knows the drinks industry well having held senior positions with major drinks suppliers SABMiller in Asia, Foster’s in Australia and William Grant & Sons. He and his wife Moira are joined by James Keith, the Hughes family, Dom De Lorenzo and John Davidson in their mission to reclaim the distilling heritage of Donegal.Moira says: “the artisanal gin category is exploding and with Donegal officially the coolest place on the planet we feel it’s an exciting time for the county and we want to thank everyone from the local community and further afield who helped us along the way.”The launch of An Dúlamán takes place from 8pm – 10.30pm at An Dúlamán Gin Palace, Sliabh Liag Distillery, Line Road, Carrick, Co. Donegal. It is strictly for over 18’s only and ID may be required. There is very limited car parking at the venue.

Young people have way too much to think about these days. Even youngsters who have only just begun their working life are expected to know about superannuation, top-up limits and co-contributions. They’re expected to be responsible now for their retirement in forty years’ time. How did we get here? In 1992 the Superannuation Guarantee required all employers to put a mandated percentage of an employee’s salary into a super fund. The super guarantee could not be accessed until the worker retired. So, the onus for retirement shifted from the government and employer, to the employee. And the quality of retirement for those in their twenties and thirties, will be their own responsibility: the amount of retirement income they accumulate will depend on investment decisions made now. The best time to build a nest egg is precisely in those years when you least want to think about it. Because super is a forty-year investment, small increases to contributions and slight changes in what kind of fund you use at the beginning of the journey, can have a big impact at the retirement end. Also, the very people who could be helping young people with advice – financial planners – are moving away from their old commission structure, to a fee-for-service model. The fee-for-service model means the client pays for the level of service they receive. And because young people have less money, and are less engaged with retirement planning in general, young people don’t go to planners. This creates what some people call a ‘service gap’ which could cost people tens of thousands of dollars at retirement. We know from our own research that young people want advice about retirement, but they do not use planners. Last year we polled 500 young people from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, aged 25-34 years. When asked how interested they were in planning for their future, 92 per cent answered either very interested or somewhat interested. When asked if they plan on seeking advice to discuss their financial goals, around a half answered ‘yes’. This means that a huge majority of young people want to set themselves up for the future but only half of them want to access the right advice. This is an important insight because financial planners don’t just help select the right super funds to invest in, they also set-up the associated aspects of a person’s present and future wealth. They attend to the whole picture, something younger generations are not experienced about. The investment options people nominate when they are not advised, is illuminating. When asked what they’d be most interested in investing in, 51 per cent said the share market which is currently quite risky and volatile. So the question has to be asked: why do young people feel more comfortable with a volatile investment class than they do with professional advice? It’s an issue that has to be resolved if the self-funded retirement system is to work properly. Talk to me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ybrwealth or on Twitter at @markbouris.
