Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin // 750 ml
At the edge of a lake in a shed in a small Irish town, the ordinary is made extraordinary. There you will find the laboratory of PJ Rigney—the boundary-pushing begetter of handcrafted spirits who slow distills gin with natures finest botanicals and gunpowder tea. PJ uses medieval copper pot stills in a quest to fuse eastern botanicals, fruits, and herbs with local Irish plants. The result of his passionate exploration is Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin—a spirit as unique and remarkable as the elusive creature pictured on the label, the Drumshanbo Jackalope.

— Meadowsweet - Drumshanbo

The nose is light and citrus-forward. Fresh lemon zest highlights a subtle, sagey juniper with the slightest hint of green tea and meadowsweet. Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin explodes with flavor on the palate where citrus once again dominates; this time grapefruit. Juniper and green tea are present mid-palate: the juniper is herbaceous and bright, the green tea calling to mind Jasmine green tea. Towards the end, it turns sweet and spicy/herbal. Anise and cardamom are subtly and expertly played here. Meadowsweet, especially late and towards the finish, lends its a honeyed, vanilla-like nuance. The combination of botanicals, though somewhat eccentric, is well balanced. The finish is mildly warming with a pleasant heat.
