Mourne Dew Distillery
Mourne Dew Distillery is the first legal distillery to operate in the Mournes for many centuries.
Using a combination of conventional and their unique vacuum stills, they are able to capture the taste of the Mournes in every bottle. Their bespoke vacuum stills operate at 2% of atmospheric pressure – with temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees centigrade – allowing them to produce an incredible range of flavours and tinctures which are blended into their various offerings. Their maturation techniques and wood policy for their poitíns and whiskeys are the subject of joint and ongoing research between them and Queen’s University of Belfast.
What They Do
Irish Whiskey, Craft Irish Gin, Poitín and vodkas
Irish Whiskeys, Kilbroney and Rostrevor gins, Pooka poitíns and Vodkas. Whiskeys – Currently they produce two stunning award winning Mourne Dew Irish Whiskeys, our heavenly Mourne Dew Single Malt (43% abv) characterised by a wonderfully peated element, and a smooth, triple distilled Mourne Dew Blended Irish Whiskey (40% abv). Kilbroney and Rostrevor Gins – Kilbroney Premium Irish Gin (42% abv) delivers a taste of fresh, uplifting citrus followed by elegant, rounded floral tones. Delicate juniper notes are beautifully complemented by hints of both spice and citrus, giving a long and complex finish; made possible by a fusion of sweet florals and light herbal flavours. Rostrevor Ruby (40% abv) delivers a burst of unmistakable strawberry and fresh floral aromas. A fusion of sweet raspberries and strawberries with a hint of mint. Finishing first, with a fruity and floral wave followed by a warm spicy tapered finish. Pooka Poitíns – They use a blend of malted barley and grain spirit to create their Pooka Blend no.1 (43% abv). Their Poitín Hazelnut Liqueur (35% abv) is a favourite among amateur and professional mixologists alike, with its versatility. Mourne Dew Irish Vodka – Their newly released 6 x Distilled Irish vodkas are velvety smooth. Available in either original or Wild Mourne Rose, these vodkas are perfect to be enjoyed neat, in a cocktail or with a mixer of your choice.
