It takes an inquisitive, questing spirit to produce the most remarkable results. Through the years PJ Rigney has taken many journeys from the familiar into terra incognita.
In time, those travels brought him here, to the wild and unspoilt landscape of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim. And it was here that his curious mind, fi lled with the great oriental traditions of distilling fruit, herbs and botanicals, got to work. He created The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney, with its medieval copper pot stills, and began a quest to fuse oriental botanicals with the local Irish ones. As it turned out, they got on very well indeed.
The result of this passionate exploration is Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin – unique, traordinary and as remarkable as the elusive creature PJ has occasionally glimpsed in the fi elds, exte the Drumshanbo Jackalope.
Slow distilled by hand in our medieval copper pot stills with oriental botanicals and gunpowder tea. 8 pot still botanicals and 4 vapour infused botanicals are combined in the oriental traditions of distilling. Every bottle is hand filled, labelled and sealed by our dedicated team of distillers.
AROMA: Smooth layers of fresh citrus.
FLAVOR: Subtle notes of spicier oriental botanicals and the intriguing gunpowder tea, bring a refreshing excitement to this Irish curiosity.
HAVE IT WITH: Stunning as part of a cocktail, or simply with a thick wedge of fresh red grapefruit. Either way – superior taste with super premium quality.
