Drumshanbro Gunpowder Irish Gin 700ml
Product ID: 427867_master
This novel release is made in the \"Shed Distillery\", Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim which is the first distillery in the West of Ireland in over 101 years. Opened in 2016 by the team of PJ Rigney and his wife Denise (inventors of Sheridan’s Irish Cream and Boru Vodka), the venture is already busy creating a range of spirits, including whiskey and gin.
The keynote here is \'Gunpowder Tea\' (Camellia sinensishis) - a green tea that\'s been slowly dried then carefully rolled into shiny pellets. The flavour is bold and bright with a slight spicy freshness. Other botanicals include juniper, angelica, orris, caraway, coriander, meadowsweet, cardamom and star anise as well as vapour infused oriental lemon, lime and fresh grapefruit.
Tasting note: Intense aromas of blackpepper, lemon peel and juniper in the opening pass. Later inhalations detect hints of orris root, cinnamon and chamomile tea. Follows through with robust flavours of liquorice root, cardamom, background juniper and a warming, vibrant, peppery finish with late juniper and liquorice through the aftertaste. A flavourful, spicy style that will hold up to mixing. 43% Alc./Vol.
