We’re inviting you to join us as be part of our 2020 EIIS Programme, as we embark on our journey to develop a world class Irish Whiskey.


The whiskey business is all about Time and Timing. We can’t do anything to reduce the minimum of 3 years that whiskey must stay in a wooden cask, but we have worked very hard on the timing to benefit our investors.

The EIIS (Employment Incentive Investment Scheme) is a longstanding tax relief initiative to encourage individual Irish taxpayers to support early-stage Irish companies with attractive income tax relief of 40% of the amount invested in Year 1 of the investment. It’s the end of the year, tax filing deadlines were pushed back this year to early December due to Covid-19, we are in the market with our 2020 EIIS Programme. In this time of negative interest rates when you will be charged interest to keep cash in your pension account, this might be something of particular interest in 2020.

Our 2019 A Share investors have all received their 40% relief against their 2019 income tax bill by now. Our team are experienced professionals. The new self-certification process introduced in 2019 is technical and timing of spending by the Company is so very important.

 If you have a material income tax bill in 2020, and you want to avail of one of the few reliefs against Irish income tax, this EIIS opportunity may suit you. Why invest in Skellig Distillers Limited?
