“As the news cycle continues to swirl lets bear in mind those that need us most and the organizations on the ground who are caring for them. I was so impressed by the resilience and courage of the people I met in Ukraine who were giving themselves completely to care for others.

The challenge for me is sustainability: keeping everyone interested, keeping this in the headlines, and keeping people aware of what’s going on. Because I do believe they’re going to win, but they need support, they need our help.”


That’s why, when the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine began, Ireland opened its doors to more than 40,000 Ukrainian refugees.

Ireland set an example for the world, accepting Ukrainian refugees, finding them food and shelter, clothing, jobs and visas — helping them to settle into their new country, whether temporarily or permanently.

That’s why Slainte Irish whiskey donates 100% of the proceeds of our limited edition 18 year old single malt to BlueCheck.

There are only 280 bottles of this special whiskey in existence, but we have the opportunity to use them to create meaningful, long-lasting change and to fuel the engines of progress. Every penny raised from the sale of these precious bottles directly helps BlueCheck in its efforts to help Ukraine.

That’s why BlueCheck exists.

BlueCheck fast-tracks financial support to NGOs and aid projects that are providing life-saving and critical humanitarian work in the hardest hit regions of Ukraine.

Launched in March 2022, BlueCheck is a collective of humanitarian crisis response experts, entrepreneurs, and filmmakers with decades of experience addressing the needs of conflict-affected populations and documenting solidarity movements countering oppression. Their pro-bono partners, Ropes and Gray and Integrity Risk International, provide independent oversight, due diligence, research, and action insights.

Each of these Ukrainian-led and grassroots emergency solidarity efforts demands immediate support from donors outside the country and BlueCheck helps make that happen.

That’s why the Irish Ambassador let us debut our BlueCheck bottle at his leaving party!

At his leaving party, outgoing Ambassador to the U.S., Daniel Mulhall spoke with BlueCheck co-founder Liev Schreiber, signed a few bottles of this special BlueCheck Slainte, and shared a toast to the idea of helping when you can and however you can. He was toasted by Liev with a bottle of this wonderful spirit to celebrate his spirit.

We’re going to keep on donating. You should, too.

The limited edition 18 year old will be gone soon, but our multi-award winning “Smooth Blend” will be around for a long time, and we’re donating $1 from every bottle sold to help the humanitarian efforts of BlueCheck Ukraine.
