Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is slow-distilled by hand with Oriental Botanicals and Gunpowder tea. The super-premium gin is the result of the Curious Mind of PJ Rigney's travels and passionate exploration. His curious mind, filled with the great oriental traditions of distilling fruit, herbs and botanicals, has fused oriental botanicals with the local Irish ones, to create this fresh citrus tasting gin with spicy notes, all slow distilled by hand in medieval copper pot stills. Fresh Chinese lemons, Kaffir limes and oriental grapefruits are vapour-infused along with the exotic gunpowder tea to give a truly unique gin experience.
