Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin
ORIENTAL BOTANICALS, GUNPOWDER TEA AND IRISH CURIOSITY. Gin with a fresh citrus taste and spicy notes of oriental botanicals. Gunpodwer tea: This is a green tea that has been slowly dried, the delicate leaves then carefully rolled into shiny pellets. The flavour is bold and bright with a slight spicy freshness. It takes an inquisitive, questing spirit to produce the most remarkable results. Through the years PJ Rigney has taken many journeys from the familiar into terra incognita. In time, those travels brought him here, to the wild and unspoilt landscape of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim. And it was here that his curious mind, filled with the great oriental traditions of distilling fruit, herbs and botanicals, got to work. He created The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney, with its medieval copper pot stills, and began a quest to fuse oriental botanicals with the local Irish ones. As it turned out, they got on very well indeed. The result of this passionate exploration is Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin - unique, extraordinary and remarkable as the elusive creature PJ has occasionally glimpsed in the fields, the Drumshanbo Jackalope.

The Last Drop Distillers Centenario Very Old Colheita Port Duo 1870 & 1970This phenomenal duo is comprised of two very old Tawny Ports, from 1870 and 1970. One hundred years separate these two extraordinary ports, but they are both from the same vineyards – across the river from Quinta Santa Julia, the 18th century family estate of the van Zeller family, in the Baixo Corgo. 1870: Tasting Notes by Neal Martin: Wine Critic for Vinous, previously of The Wine Advocate. Author of Pomerol “It has an arresting bouquet with scents of black plum, rosehip syrup, Manuka honey, fig and grilled walnut… Beautifully balanced, fresh and slightly viscous in texture, this is a complex Tawny Port whose age has not diminished just how delicious it tastes. It just goes out to offer gorgeous mulberry, clove, eau de vie and Chinese five-spice notes throughout its harmonious and poised finish. This is just a sublime Tawny of class and pedigree and it comes highly recommended. 97 Points. Drink.” 1970: Tasting Notes by Neal Martin: “Clove, toffee, wild fennel and smoke aromas. The palate is sweet and crisp on the entry with a tang of Seville orange marmalade and quince. There is great tension here thanks to the fine seam of acidity with a fresh, almost “zippy” finish that belies its age. A fine Colheita Tawny. 93 Points. Drink.”
