Get in the Spirit of World Gin Day with N.I.’s first locally produced gin!

Lovers of Gin across Northern Ireland can celebrate World Gin Day, Saturday 14 June 2014, with the province’s first and only locally distilled craft gin, Shortcross.

World Gin Day is an occasion we can all definitely get in the spirit for… weather you like it with tonic, in a martini, negroni or a sling World Gin Day is a celebration of all things gin, giving a legitimate excuse (not that we needed one) to mix up a cocktail or two…

So why not celebrate on Saturday with a Shortcross Gin and tonic, NI’s premier craft spirit made locally by husband and wife team Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong, in Rademon Estate Distillery located outside Downpatrick, County Down at the couples historic family estate.

Shortcross Gin is an aromatic and exceptionally long, smooth Gin that redefines what an Irish Gin should be.  Created through the use of fresh apples, elderberries and wild clover distilled with other botanicals including juniper, coriander, orange peel, lemon peel and cassia. The combination of botanicals creates a unique and uplifting aroma reminiscent of a summer meadow, and gives Shortcross Gin a classic yet contemporary flavour with an exceptionally smooth and long peppery finish.

Passionate about hand crafting only the finest, artisan premium spirits, David and Fiona take the time and passion to handpick and source the finest botanicals, draw their own fresh water, distil in a magnificent bespoke copper still – every element of Shortcross Gin is created by hand.

Fiona Boyd-Armstrong said;

“We are extremely proud and passionate about Shortcross Gin and are especially proud to have launched the first craft distillery. From the moment of making that very first sale, the response has been phenomenal. We have been overwhelmed by the support of everyone.”

Shortcross Gin has been extremely successful since it’s initial launch in May and is now available in leading bars and restaurants across Northern Ireland including James Street South, Hadskis, James Street South Bar & Grill, Ox Belfast, Balloo House, The Parsons Nose, The Poachers Pocket, and Muriels Café Bar

The gin is also now available to purchase in outlets across the province including; Helen’s Bay, Newcastle, Holywood, Kilkeel, Enniskillen, Derrylin, Whiteabbey, Belfast, Crossgar, Armagh and Saintfield.
