The legendary American Jackelope on the bottle; Chinese tea is the signature botanical, but Gunpowder Gin is made in Drumshanbo, Ireland. Gunpowder Tea is so called because each tea leaf has been rolled into a small ball, reminiscent of gunpowder. It’s usually made with green tea leaves and it’s that special ingredient that gives Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin its name. Beyond that, Gunpowder Gin is a complex array of botanicals from a number of traditions. Three kinds of citrus fruit: grapefruit, lemon and makrut lime join the tea and are vapor distilled. The remaining ingredients, including Macedonian juniper, are macerated and distilled in a pot still.
Tasting Note: Aromas of juniper, spices and citrus. Explodes with flavour on the palate with citrus dominant. Grapefruit, juniper and green tea are present mid-palate. The finish is mildly warming, sweet and spicy with a pleasant heat.
