Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is the creation of PJ Rigney. His travels brought him to the wild and unspoiled landscape of Drumshanbo, Ireland where he created The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney, using medieval copper pot stills, and began a quest to fuse oriental botanicals with local Irish ones. Slow distilled by hand with gunpowder tea, Gunpowder Irish Gin combines 8 pot still and 4 vapor infused botanicals in the oriental tradition of distilling.
This season, they have released their flagship spirit in a limited edition ceramic bottle featuring illustrations that tell the brand’s story inspired by the iconic Willow pattern.
GSN’s Remarks: We’ve previously reviewed Drumshanbo here, but we wanted to review this gorgeous new limited edition bottle. This looks absolutely killer on the back bar and stands out like a thing of beauty. The color scheme is perfect for winter, but also has the classic colors of Chinese qīng-huā. This is a gorgeous bottle that will be kept long after the gin is gone. And while I think of it, it’s time for a Martini. Cheers! GSN Rating: A+
