Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old / coconut / simple syrup / matcha tea
Irish whiskey takes a trip to the tropics! The She-Lei-Lei (“she lay lay”) combines the ethereal elegance of Knappogue Castle Single Malt Irish Whiskey 12-Year with the aromas of coconut and warm spices, grounded by the earthiness and naturally vivid hue of matcha green tea.
Knappogue Castle 12-Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey is made from 100% malted barley, triple-distilled and non-peated, aged for 12 years in American oak, resulting in a rounded, aromatic, and slightly fruity sipping experience.
The name of the cocktail is a take on the Gaelic word “shillelagh” (“shu-lay-la”) – a type of walking stick made from blackthorn trees popularized in Irish folklore – mixed with “lei”, which is a Polynesian term for a garland of flowers that is typically bestowed upon visitors as a welcoming gesture. With its inviting green hue and scrumptious flavors, this is a drink that feels like travel to a warm island getaway in a glass.
