I was brought up to believe that the banshee was a wailing woman who might appear in the night to bring death and despair to a family. Wonderful. Not only had we the church telling us that things weren't all that good, even at the best of times, but we had fantastical pagan creatures jumping out of hedgerows during stormy nights as well. Thank god for the little people. If it wasn't for them being around we would have all gone entirely mad!
Flash forward and the Banshee Legend has now been remembered, reinvented and resurrected in an intriguing spirit. Have a look at the packaging. It's a wow. Looks good. Feels good.

Michelle Power and her son Illann are behind the product. Michelle has already brought us the fabulous Boozeberries. Folks, if we want to turn this ship around we need to start making stuff that fit into boxes that we can export all around the world. Banshee hits that nail right on its head. Banshee gold?
Well, as it happens, at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards last week Banshee Legend was indeed awarded a Gold Medal. Well deserved too.
Banshee Legend is an Irish Whiskey based liqueur infused with an intriguing collection of herbs and scents one of which is wild honeysuckle from Slievenamon, where foklore tells us the Banshee presides .....
This is whiskey with a very distinct sweetness and a strong ginger tinge to a wild herbal finish. It's very well made and serious and fun to drink. You know, where it's not so much serious fun but serious and fun? Don't be put off by the sweetness. Well chilled in the right setting .....
The packaging has already picked up awards. Its tremendous. That's why the San Francisco award is important. It's a blind tasting competition where packaging has no effect. This deserves to be a winner.
And I always thought a legend was below the ankle
