Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin presents in a turquoise blue bottle and promises oriental botanicals including "gunpowder tea." They describe gunpowder tea as a green tea included in a set of botanicals of juniper, orris, caraway, coriander, meadowsweet, cardamon, star anise, lemon, lime, and grapefruit. All of these strike us as traditional botanicals save for the tea and the emphasis on citrus, which reminds of Mediterranean styles of gin. (It might be easy to confuse "gunpowder" as a reference to "navy proof" or "gunpowder proof" usually around 114 proof.
ABV: 43.0% Proof: 86.0

"Slow distilled by hand in medieval copper pots"

About the Producer

The Shed Distillery was founded by Patrick Rigney in Leitrim, Ireland in 2014. The gin is named for the city of Drumshanbo in Ireland where the distillery is located. In deepest rural Ireland, on the edge of a lake in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim, is the home of The Shed Distillery and PJ Rigney. PJ created The Shed Distillery 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, extraordinary and remarkable, all bottled and labelled by local hands at the distillery.

    My absolute favorite!

    (Posted on 9/25/2018)

    Such a smooth and refreshing flavour. Citrus, spice, and subtle gunpowder tea. Lovely with red grapefruit and indian tonic water, or a negroni!

    Amazing Bottle with a fantastic tasting liquid inside

    (Posted on 9/24/2018)

    A well balanced delicious Gin, I tried it with the signature serve and the ruby grapefruit really brought out the citrus notes of this Gin. Well done

    Fabulously flavourful

    (Posted on 9/22/2018)

    The reason I choose this gin is because it really does have all those botanical flavours. You can have a simple G+T and it will taste like a cocktail!
