From gunpowder tea to gunpowder Gin.

Drumshanbo, a small town in County Leitrim, is the home of the Drumshanbo Distillery and Gunpowder Gin. The brainchild of master distiller Patrick J Rigby, the mastermind behind multiple quality Spirits on the market, Gunpowder Gin takes its name from one of its principle botanicals; gunpowder tea.

Distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Gunpowder Gin is made with 12 botanicals, the more sturdy of which are added to the distillate in the pot (juniper, cardamom, coriander, star anise, orris root, angelica root, caraway seeds and meadowsweet), and some which are vapor-infused (kaffir lime, oriental grapefruit, Chinese lemon, and the namesake gunpowder tea).

Gunpowder Gin is the meeting of oriental spice and Irish tradition. The curious mind of master distiller PJ Rigby had a flash of inspiration when creating the Gin. The bottle, a beautiful, ribbed blue glass, features the mythical creature of the jackalope; part Jack rabbit, part antelope, symbolising the remarkable Gin inside.

Gunpowder tea, which is a form is green tea, lends the Gin a slightly spicy freshness. Coupled with the other 11 botanicals, which give the Gin a citrus-led aroma and bold taste. It’s an explosion of flavors in a bottle. 

It's also the winner of the Flaviar Community Awards 2019 — Flaviaristas know a good Gin when they see it.
