Gunpowder Gin

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is slow distilled by hand using a unique collection of oriental botanicals, fresh citrus fruits and gunpowder tea.
Deliciously fresh and rounded up front with citrus and juniper notes with spicier oriental botanical notes immediately evident.
Serve over ice with a chilled premium tonic water, and a generous wedge of fresh red grapefruit to emphasise the refreshing citrus notes.
The new Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin with Sardinian Citrus Irish Gin is also available now. It brings together the 12 oriental botanicals and gunpowder tea, with the uniquely rare “Sa pompia” Sardinian citrus.
This is best enjoyed in a smooth, refreshing cocktail or on its own with a generous wedge of fresh red grapefruit.

A creator of new recipes, an inventor, an experimenter, The Shed Distillery was founded by PJ Rigney and opened in 2014.

Every precious drop of Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is slow distilled by hand, at The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim
To create this truly unique gin, 8 oriental botanicals from The Curious Journey of the Curious Mind are added to a gleaming medieval style copper pot still and slow distilled by our team of distillers, led by Head Distiller, Brian Taft.
Fresh lemons, limes, grapefruit and gunpowder tea are placed in a vapour basket column, where they are vapour infused into the gin as the other 8 botanicals distil.
The result is Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin with refreshing citrus notes, and a long, exotic, mysterious finish.

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin brings together oriental botanicals, gunpowder tea and Irish curiosity.
Located at the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn, and on the banks of Lough Allen, is the rural village of Drumshanbo where The Shed Distillery is located.
In this wild and unspoilt landscape, PJ Rigney’s Curious Mind is free to experiment, combining the great oriental traditions of distilling fruits, herbs, and botanicals with the local Irish ones.
