OUR STORY

From the high tables of the clergy…to the open hearth of the humblest cottier…a distilling tradition has been woven into the very soul of our Irish island identity. And we, are the inheritor of that tradition that has endured throughout the tumultuous history of this great island.

For millenia spirit distillation has been practised in Ireland. Long the preserve of Irish monasteries from the time of St Patrick, knowledge of the distiller’s craft gradually passed to the laity such that by the mid sixteenth century distilling and the enjoyment of hard liquor was endemic in Irish society. 

Throughout times of conquest, repression, and rebellion, spirit distillation prospered such that it now is a tradition woven into the very soul of our island Irish identity, nowhere moreso than in the ancient Mountains of Mourne.

 

Edward Willes, Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer, writing circa 1759 made the following observation following his travels through the Mournes:

… it is a hard day’s journey, being over the Alps and Apennines of Ireland: they are called the Mountains of Mourne and the Mountains of Newry. Within these twenty-three years, it was an absolute uncivilized country, and any who ventured to go among them did it at his peril it being the most inaccessible retreat of tories and rapparees and outlaws… the wildest and most mountainous country I have seen. And yet there must be times when the master and mistress of the family are merry and jolly, for one sees the cabin doors crowded with little naked boys and girls. In one part of these mountains is a place of resort for people of fashion who come to drink goat’s whey which in Ireland is esteemed preferable to asses’ milk, and a great purifier of the blood, and the herbs that grow on these mountains are thought to be the most medicinal of any.”

Baron Willes was an astute observer of life for the place he was talking about all those centuries ago was none other than Rostrevor village, the home of Mourne Dew Distillery!

Spirits

Triple Distilled Irish Whiskey (70cl)

£31.99

(In stock)

Our first-born whiskey is in the style of a classic Irish whiskey. It is a triple distilled blend of barley, wheat and rye spirits which have been matured in a mixture of virgin oak and bourbon casks. All tasting and blending has been done in-house (we reckon we know a good whiskey when we taste one) and we think that the resulting whiskey is quite exceptional. We hope you’ll agree.
