About Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin

"The result of this passionate exploration is Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin — unique, extraordinary and remarkable as the elusive creature P.J. has occasionally glimpsed in the fields, the Drumshanbo Jackalope" (producer). With its fresh citrus taste and spicy notes of Asian botanicals, Gunpowder Tea, or zhū chá, translates literally as "pearl tea," a type of green tea that has been slowly dried, its delicate leaves carefully rolled into shiny pellets, resembling gun powder. Gunpowder Tea dates as far back as the Tang Dynasty (618–907).

The ever inquisitive P.J. Rigney released the highly unique Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, in 2016. Its recipe fuses Asian botanicals with the local Irish ones, yielding a harmonious bold, bright flavor with a slight spice, the Gunpowder tea botanical taking center stage.

About Gin

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.


Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.

Bright citrus and gunpowder tea are complimented with juniper and spicy notes coming to the fore on the nose. The palate is delightfully fresh and rounded up front with citrus, juniper & spice immediately evident. The expected juniper follows close behind. Gunpowder Tea, meadowsweet & coriander are all notable.
