Drumshanbo, a small town in Country Leitrim, is the home of the Drumshanbo distillery and Gunpowder Gin. The brainchild of master distiller Patrick J Rigby, the mastermind behind multiple quality spirits on the market, Gunpowder Gin takes its name from one of its principle botanicals; gunpowder tea.
Distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Gunpowder is made with 12 botanicals, the more sturdy of which are added to the distillate in the pot (juniper, cardamom, coriander, star anise, orris root, anglica root, caraway seeds and meadowsweet), and some of which are vapor-infused (kaffir lime, oriental grapefruit, chinese lemon and the name sake gunpowder tea).

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin 700ml
This is an amazing example of an Irish gin - fragrant, smooth, just a delightful drop. This is as good as gin gets, in my humble opinion. I mixed it with a Fever Tree Indian Tonic and some lemon peel.
