Bevvy of the Week – Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin

This week I would like to recommend an Irish Gin from Drumshanbo Co. Leitrim called Gunpowder Irish Gin.

Bevvy of the Week - Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin

The Shed Distillery is the producer of this very fine bevvy. The name comes from one of the vapour infused botanicals used to distill the gin called Gunpowder tea. This is a green tea whose leaves are rolled into shiny pellets that resemble bullets, so the name is very fitting.

There are twelve botanicals used in the production of this gin, four of which are vapour infused. These botanical ingredients along with the fact the gin is distilled by hand in medieval copper pot stills, makes for a really really enjoyable gin experience.

This Irish Gin is fresh, with lively citrus and spicy flavours. Mix it with Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic to really set it off.

A bottle will set you back about €50 but it’s worth every drop. For more info visit the website here.

Enjoy, Sláinte,
