A new Irish vodka brand has been launched at an international trade fair for wine and spirits in Düsseldorf, Germany. Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka was launched at the 2018 ProWein Trade Fair, which was held on March 18-20th.

Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka is the second brand from The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney, following on from the success of the Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, launched just under two years ago. Each bottle of Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka will be slow distilled by hand, carefully hand-bottled, sealed and labelled at The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney in Drumshanbo Co. Leitrim.

As with Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, the vodka will be distributed in Ireland by Dalcassian Wines & Spirits, which PJ co-owns with Managing Director John Dillon. The retail price will lie between €44 and €49 in the Irish market.

This news follows the announcement of the opening of The Shed’s new Visitor Experience next year, which is expected to create an additional 22 jobs at the Drumshanbo distillery, bringing the total number of employees to at least 40 by 2019.
