Focusing on centuries of Gin making in Ireland, we at Killowen Distillery place seasonal botanicals to the fore, many of which are handpicked from the immediate locality.
Native Irish botanical
Distilled with carefully selected native botanicals; angelica root, liquorice root, wild mint leaf, coriander, fuchsia flower, juniper, lemon, orange & grapefruit zests, rose hip, elderberry & meadow sweet.
Fresh, lightly floral aromas on the nose reminiscent of a countryside walk in a sweet meadow, with a background of refreshing citrus.
A balanced gin with sweet minerality, earthy notes and a hint of spice, the sweet nose becomes dryer and more mellow on the palate.
A pleasantly crisp, clean, slightly sweet finish with a hint of native mint.
Rhubarb, Heather & Hibiscus
First distilled with our carefully selected native Irish botanicals, then infused with locally grown and foraged rhubarb and heather, together with bitter sweet hibiscus petal—this gin is wonderfully complex.
BlackberrY, Rosemary & Orange
Distilled with carefully selected native Irish botanicals, infused with locally grown and foraged blackberry and rosemary, together with bitter sweet orange peel and the merest hint of local Honey.
Looking seaward from Killowen Distillery you can immediately see Carlingford Lough, a busy trade port that has brought countless ships into shore over the years… it got us inspired to make this navy strength gin, full of aromatic botanical flavours and punch.
Old tom Style
Old Tom gets its name from the wooden plaques shaped like “Old Tom” black cats that adorned the outside wall of pubs in 18th Century England…or at least that’s how the story goes.
Ours is distilled with native botanicals, cask aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished with liquorice root and local Irish honey.
