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 flavor in a bottle.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Michael,
Just got into gin, but this Gunpowder Gin is already at the top of my list! With aromas of tea and anise, the taste of Coriander and citrus, down to the long spiced finish, this is an awesome Gin that most can be thankful for!

Thomas,
Love this gin - a nice, unique flavor profile. Quite herbal with citrus notes and a smooth finish. Makes a great Gin and Tonic with Fevertree Elderberry tonic.

Jason,
I wasn’t expecting the flavor. It’s really good but not a gin flavor you would expect. I feel like it’s fruity and tropical. But it’s soooo good. If you’re looking for a different gin flavor, TRY THIS ONE!

Charles,
My wife discovered this while traveling in Ireland. She had never had gin and tonic before. Our waitress suggested this because it was made with Fever Tree tonic, cucumber, and lime. She fell in love with it! We were so disappointed when we were told it could only be purchased in Ireland. She will not drink regular gin and sometimes will do Hendricks but when I surprised her with a bottle of Gunpowder she was elated. Please keep available. Price point very reasonable.
Michael
Michael,
How was this prepared? Was the cucumber muddled, or just used as a garnish? Thanks for posting Charles!
Matt
Matt,
