THE BEST IN DISTILLING FROM THE MOURNE MOUNTAINS
BRINGING IT TO THE WORLD AND BACK AGAIN.
Located in the Mourne Mountains of County Down, the Killowen Distillery is located halfway between Belfast and Dublin. Launched in 2017 by Brendan Carty, Liam Brogan, and Shane McCarthy the Killowen Distillery resides at the base of Knock Shee (the Fairy Mountain) with a view that slopes down to the sea. This tiny distillery’s maritime climate places a unique fingerprint on the spirits distilled and aged there. The Rum & Raisin Single Malt is an extraordinary malt aged in ex-rum and ex-sherry casks that are super active.
Nose: Green apples and raisins along with Demerara molasses and warm plum pudding.
Palate: Creamy and thick mouthfeel with vanilla, raisins, dried dates and figs, ripe red grapes, blackberries, black currants - all influences from the PX and Rum finishing.
Finish: Medium length. Caramel/toffee that lingers, malt, marzipan and dried figs disappear quickly.
