Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin (750 ml)

About This Item

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is produced in-house at The Shed Distillery, with a lakeside setting in Drumshanbo in Ireland. The gin features a combination of traditional gin botanicals such as juniper and orris root, oriental botanicals such as Gunpowder Tea from China, and meadowsweet from Ireland. The juniper, roots and seeds are distilled in copper pot stills along with a vapor infusion of the citrus botanicals and Gunpowder Tea. 

Tasting Notes: 

Nose: Light and citrus-forward. Fresh lemon zest highlights a subtle herbaceous, sagey juniper with the slightest hint of green tea and meadowsweet.

Palate: Dominant citrus, especially grapefruit. Juniper and green tea are present mid-palate. 

Finish: Sweet and spicy/herbal. Anise and cardamom are subtly and expertly played in here. Meadowsweet, especially late and towards the finish lends its a honeyed, vanilla-like nuance.
