Gunpowder Irish Gin is the creation of a truly curious mind. At the edge of a lake in a small Irish town, the ordinary was made extraordinary in a small shed by one man. PJ Rigney is a boundary-pushing begetter of hand-made spirits who slow-distills gin with nature's finest oriental botanicals and gunpowder tea. He named this creation for a creature of mystery and wonder – the jackalope - a mythological progeny of a jackrabbit (not a real rabbit) and an American antelope (not a real antelope). 

Conceived in a lightning storm, says the legend, the jackalope appears in Drumshanbo at will, as in a dream. And then: gone in a flurry of feet and antlers. It’s little wonder that the jackalope has come to symbolize all that is remarkable about Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin.

Gunpowder tea is a Chinese green tea that has been slowly dried, the delicate leaves then carefully rolled into shiny pellets. The flavor is bold and bright with a slight spicy freshness. PJ combines this flavor with exotic botanicals such as Meadowsweet from Drumshanbo, Juniper Berries from Macedonia, Cardamom from India, Star Anise from China, Kaffir lime from Cambodia, Oriental grapefruit from Indonesia and Anjelica root from Germany.  The result is a multi-layered, beautiful gin for both gin martini's and gin cocktails.

Named for the gunpowder tea that’s part of the botanical mix, this bone-dry gin offers juniper, anise, caraway and lime peel on the nose. The palate opens with grapefruit, finishing long and astringent on pink peppercorn, caraway and a flicker of alcohol heat. Mix into martinis.
