Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin came onto the market in 2016 and lauded for its delicate botanical notes, is now in demand worldwide. It is slow-distilled by hand in copper pot stills, with a carefully selected blend of eight Irish and oriental botanicals added to the still. The delicate flavours of Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin are garnered through a vapour process whereby four botanicals are added to the vapour basket including gunpowder tea, Chinese lemon, Kaffir lime and Oriental grapefruit resulting in the distinctive flavour of the now world-renowned gin.
The Ashford Castle’s Gin Tray Tasting Experience in collaboration with Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin must be booked in advance and costs €65 per person.*
