Gin & Poitín Menu

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.

KILBRONEY PREMIUM IRISH GINA fresh, uplifting citrus that’s followed by elegant, rounded floral tones. Delicate juniper notes,
beautifully complemented by hints of both spice and citrus. Long and complex; a fusion of sweet florals and light herbal flavours.
