In recent years the traditional gin and tonic has been reinvented with superb new artisan gins emerging throughout Ireland and the UK. At the Rostrevor Inn we are doubly lucky in having two of Ireland’s finest gin (and poitin) distilleries on our doorstep, Mourne Dew from Warrenpoint and Killowen, Ireland’s smallest distillery. We also stock other superb gins from Scotland, England and even Italy!

MIX IT UP! To enhance the flavours of these wonderful gins we recommend the natural mixers – tonic water, ginger ale, elderflower and more – produced by Fever-Tree and Goldberg & Sons.

      Made in Scotland, it’s the most popular gin import in the US. The recipe is a secret, although it’s known to contain juniper, coriander, angelica root and liquorice.

    • Killowen Poitín
