Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin
Let your senses travel around the world with this award-winning Irish gin. Infused with 12 botanicals from across Asia and Ireland and distilled by hand in an old copper pot gin still with a unique botanical vapour basket. Eight botanicals are added to the copper pot including star anise from China; coriander seed from Romania; angelica root from Germany; caraway seed and cardamom from India; orris root from Morocco; Juniper berries from Macedonia and Meadowsweet from Ireland.
A further four botanicals are then added to the vapour basket: Gunpowder tea and Chinese lemon from China; oriental grapefruit from Indonesia and makrut lime from Cambodia. This unlikely concoction is left to rest and mature. Then it’s bottled, labelled and box-packed by hand in the remote ‘Shed Distillery’ – the first distillery in the west of Ireland in over 101 years – in the wild and rugged Drumshanbo.
Belvedere Limited-Edition Vodka
The metallic-blue collage design on the white, limited-edition bottle represents the peeling back of layers to reveal the words “Beautiful Future,” ( a partnership with GRAMMY-nominated musician, actor, and activist Janelle Monáe) – along with the familiar “Belweder” the Polish presidential Palace illustration and follows a series of annual limited-edition offerings.
Crafted using only superior grade Polska rye and water from its own local pristine source, it’s 100% natural, contains no additives nor added sugar, and is produced in accordance with the legal requirements of Polska Vodka. Its taste profile is structured, elegant and balanced, with a subtle sweetness, rich mouthfeel and smooth, clean finish. From Bloody Mary brunches to fresh sunset cocktails, this is a must have addition to any liquor cabinet worth its muster this season.
Still here to impress…
