Killowen Distillery is seated in the heart of the Mournes in County Down where horizons are framed by sweeping hills that slope gently into the sea. It is a place where old traditions and the finest natural resources have been blended to produce world class craft spirits.

The rivers coursing through the mountains are filtered by ancient stones and the areas semi maritime land have long produced the highest quality grain crops. In our pursuit of perfecting the ancient alchemy of whiskey making, our Master Distiller has married these together and by using new recipes, has transformed these elements into liquid gold.

Killowen Distillery offers the most authentic and intimate distillery tour in Ireland. Your tour includes distiller's guide through process and distillery, followed by questions & answers. The tour concludes with a guided tasting of Killowen's: Poitín, Gin & Tonic and a choice of either new-make Single Pot Still spirit or new-make Peated Pot Still spirit.
