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.

The Winter Solstice launch of 2014 celebrated Connacht’s first distillation in over 101 years. The first cask was sealed at 12.23pm, the time of the solar transit.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
