Join us at our Spirit Experience.
Welcome to Rostrevor’s newest attraction!
The Mourne Dew Spirit Experience is now open in one of Irelands oldest bars – Fearons. Come along and indulge in generous samples of Mourne Dew’s award-winning spirits while immersing yourself in the history and stories of Irish poitín, whiskey and gin. Rostrevor’s age-old association with distilling and brewing is a story waiting to be told. Hear all about it as you sip on our most delicious spirits.
We currently have two experiences to choose from, depending on your preferred tipple:
Whiskey & Poitín - Spirits of Fire and Rebellion : Hear the story of how whiskey and poitín became the national drinks of Ireland (spoiler alert – Henry VIII had a lot to do with it!). Enjoy cocktails and liqueurs as well as sampling raw spirits to find out what makes our whiskeys and poitíns so special. Once the preserve of monasteries, the production of these spirits spread across Ireland – however whilst one became famous and desired the world over, the other slipped into the mists and shadows of ill repute… Thankfully, things have changed and poitín is finally having its day in the sun. Join us and taste the very best of Irish whiskey and poitín (especially if you’ve never tasted it before!).
The Glorious Gin Revolution - 1688 and All That : Calling all Gin lovers! Discover the history of Irish Gin and what makes our Mourne Dew recipes so special.
Learn how a Dutch medicinal spirit became popular all over Britain and Ireland (second spoiler alert – William of Orange had a hand in it!). Hear about the history of this great spirit as well as our own unique take on how to make it. Enjoy a selection of delicious cocktails made from our gins (as well as the best Kilbroney Gin & Tonic in the world) and take the opportunity to taste the alcoholic tincture that goes into our gins. If you love gin, you’ll love this experience!
The Mourne Dew Experience is located within a private area of Fearons Bar in Rostrevor, one of Ireland’s oldest pubs.
26 The Square, Rostrevor, Newry BT34 3AZ
In continuous existence since the 1760’s, Fearons is one of the oldest hostelries in Ireland. Enjoy the wonderful selection of Mourne Dew spirits as well as the ambiance of a timeless Irish bar. There were some minor renovations made to the pub back in the 1950’s but we reckon the new look has worn off the place by now…! Other than that, we have pushed the boat out and slapped on a coat of paint to freshen up the oldest rooms for this new attraction. We really hope you enjoy your visit, and that you can stay on for the craic afterwards...
