Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin
Combines oriental & Irish ingredients. Total of 12 exquisite botanicals, some are well known, such as juniper, angelica & cardamom. Also exotic ones like Chinese lime, Gunpowder Tea (dried Chinese green tea), Kaffir lime & grapefruit.
Main ingredients are distilled directly in pot still & lies in the infusion basket between the bubble & condenser. The gin absorbs aromas of tea & citrus fruits as it passes through the distillation apparatus.
Taste of spice, astringency & juniper. Aromas of juniper, spices & citrus notes. Spicy body palate is increasingly perceived as bitter tea with bitter notes & citrus, before the finish presents itself with a long & spicy aftertaste.
Combined fabulously with a Mediterranean & herbaceous tonic water, both notes of tea & citrus fruits are wonderfully noticeable.
