Gunpowder Irish Gin
To tie in with St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th of March, Gunpowder Irish Gin is our Gin of the Month this March. Gunpowder Irish Gin is distilled at the edge of a lake at The Shed Distillery located in a small Irish town called Drumshanbo in County Leitrim. Pat Rigney initially uses eight of the finest oriental botanicals; juniper, angelica, orris root, caraway seed, coriander, meadow sweet cardamom and star anise. Oriental lemon and lime, fresh grapefruit and slowly dried Gunpowder tea are then added; the latter signature botanical is the inspiration behind the name.
