An Irish Gin produced in Drumshanbo: the manufacturing process begins with an array of ingredients assembled by the curious mind of PJ Rigney. Distillation takes place in a traditional copper still, during which eight botanicals are added: juniper berries, coriander and caraway seeds, angelica and iris roots, star anise, cardamom and meadowsweet. Next, the citrus fruits and tea are added to the Vapour basket; Gunpowder tea, lime and lemon, grapefruit will sign the aromatic composition of this gin. Short aging before bottling. This is a London Dry Gin, with no added sugar.
PJ Rigney creates The Shed Distillery in Ireland, in Drumshanbo, after numerous peregrinations and initiatory journeys, from China to Morocco via India and Macedonia, Romania and Cambodia. With his many olfactory and gustatory discoveries, he then decided to merge the oriental botanicals of his travels with those of his native Irish lands. A dream come true, a contemplation at the crossroads of two worlds, symbolized by a mysterious and wonderful creature on each of the bottles. A "jackalope", the mythological progeny of a jackrabbit (not a real rabbit) and an American antelope (not a real antelope). It's no wonder the jackalope has come to symbolize all that is remarkable about Drumshando's Gunpowder Irish Gin. Two disparate cultures and traditions brought together in a singular flash of inspiration.
