Killowen old fashioned

Old Fashioned

Killowen Distillery's take on the classic cocktail.


It's best known as a whiskey-based cocktail but Killowen Distillery in County Down has a different take on the classic drink.

They've left the whiskey aside and make their version of an Old Fashioned with poitín. I

t's a simple recipe and a nice spin on the much-loved cocktail. Give it a try.

1 shot Killowen Poitín
1 sugar cube
3 dashes bitters
The peel of one orange


  1. Place sugar in the bottom of the rocks glass.
  2. Add bitters and muddle together until combined.
  3. Add preferred amount of ice and pour over poitín.
  4. Stir until sugar is mostly dissolved.
  5. Hold a piece of orange peel between your thumb and forefinger and squeeze over the glass to release the oil.
  6. If you like, you can carefully use a match or lighter to flame the orange oils for a caramelised flavour.
  7. Garnish with the orange peel.
