It takes an inquisitive, questing spirit to produce the most remarkable results.

Gunpowder Gin is the meeting of oriental spice and Irish tradition. The curious mind of master distiller PJ Rigney had a flash of inspiration when creating the Gin. The bottle, a beautiful, ribbed blue glass, features the mythical creature of the jackalope; part Jack rabbit, part antelope, symbolising the remarkable Gin inside.

Journeying from the rural wilds of Drumshanbo to the mountains of Macedonia, to the Eastern Province of Zhejiang, China, PJ Rigney added each of the Gunpowder Gins' 12 intriguing botanicals individually.

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is slow distilled in a medieval copper pot still in Drumshanbo, Ireland. Eight botanicals (Juniper Berries, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Caraway Seed, Coriander Seed, Meadow Sweet, Cardamom, and Star Anise) are slow distilled by hand in the copper pot still. Four additional botanicals (Oriental Lemon, Oriental Lime, Fresh Grapefruit, and Gunpowder Tea) are vapor infused in a vapor basket.
The vapor rises through the unique shape of the medieval head, which allows maximum copper contact. This helps to clean and purify the spirit. The vapor exits the still and passes into the infusion basket, where it gently extracts the oils and aromas from the citrus and tea. Boiling in the still would extract bitter compounds from these ingredients, whereas vapor infusion only extracts the aromatic oils.

Tasting Notes


Bright citrus and Gunpowder tea are complimented with juniper and spicy notes coming to the fore.


Delightfully fresh and rounded up front with citrus, juniper & spicy notes immediately evident. The expected Juniper follows close behind. Gunpowder Tea, meadowsweet & Coriander are all notable. The overall impression is of a very well balanced and surprising gin.


Bold, spiced and long.
