Named for the gunpowder tea that's part of the botanical mix, this bone-dry gin offers juniper, anise, caraway and lime peel on the nose. The palate opens with grapefruit, finishing long and astringent on pink peppercorn, caraway and a flicker of alcohol heat. Mix into martinis.
The Curious Journey of a Curious Mind...
It takes an inquisitive, inquiring spirit to produce remarkable results. Through the years, PJ Rigney has taken many journeys from the familiar into terra incognita. His travels ultimately brought him to the wild and unspoiled landscape of Drumshanbo –a small town situated in the heart of County Leitrim, Ireland. It was there that his curious mind went to work.
Crafted at The Shed Distillery, PJ used medieval copper pot stills in a quest to fuse eastern botanicals, fruits and herbs with local Irish plants. The result of his passionate exploration was Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin – as unique, extraordinary and remarkable as the elusive creature pictured on the label, the Drumshanbo Jackalope.
Enjoying an enthusiastic resurgence in modern cocktail culture, Gin, a.k.a. ‘Dutch Courage,’ was originally touted as a 16th century cure for cowardice and stomach ailments. Arguably the broadest and most dynamic category of spirits in terms of flavor profiles and production styles, Gin is a distilled grain spirit that derives its primary flavor from juniper berries and secondary flavors from a dazzling array of spices, herbs, fruits and botanicals. It is both produced and enjoyed all around the world and is most commonly mixed into cocktails such as the Martini or simply added to tonic water.
