Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin may appear fairly basic, but this distinct spirit may just be one of the most unusual gins available right now. Crafted from a grain neutral base, Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin features the typical mix of juniper, angelica root, orris root, caraway seed, coriander seed, meadowsweet, cardamom and star anise. However, the spirit is then vapor-infused with an innovative blend of botanicals, including Chinese lemon, Oriental grapefruit, Kaffir lime and gunpowder tea.
The use of these botanicals gives Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin a unique set of attributes, including a peppery and spicy nose, with a bold juniper aroma and earthy notes. On the palate, green tea is prominently featured and is slightly sweet and reminiscent of matcha. The finish is also slightly sweet, with a vanilla kick that lingers on the tongue.
