Ashford Castle Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin edition
With Father’s Day on the horizon, falling on Sunday, 18th June, Ashford Castle and The Lodge at Ashford Castle have some wonderful gifts for every budget – and for every father.
A partnership between the world-renowned Ashford Castle Estate and the remarkable Shed Distillery, the home of Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin has resulted in a refreshingly bright exotic gin, with the fresh and subtle flavours of citrus and honey.
Distilled by hand, this unique gin carefully balances gunpowder tea and fresh citrus fruits from the Orient with smooth-flowing honey from the first harvest of beehives on the Ashford Castle Estate and wood sorrel, which flourishes below the vast tree population in the 350-acre Castle gardens.
Priced at €65, Ashford Castle Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin edition is exclusively available online from Mrs Tea’s Boutique & Bakery on the Ashford Castle Estate and The Shed Distillery Experience gift shop in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim. The perfect present for the discerning father!
