SHORTCROSS GIN 2

​​​​​​​​Rademon Estate Distillery, the first and only craft distillery to be established in Northern Ireland have officially launched their first product, Shortcross Gin.

Rademon Estate Distillery was founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong, the distillery is located outside Downpatrick, County Down at the couples historic family estate.

David Boyd-Armstrong said;
“We had always wanted to create our own business and to work together. Fiona had always talked about how exciting it would be build a distillery and produce a premium Irish product.

As we explored the idea further we became fascinated and inspired by the quality of craft spirits products being produced across the globe.

This lead to us looking hard at the costs involved and developing a business plan that would work for us. It was then that we decided to take the plunge and launch Rademon Estate Distillery, it has taken 2 1/2 years to get this point in time where we have launched Shortcross Gin.”

Shortcross Gin is the first small batch, craft spirit to be launched under the Shortcross brand by Rademon Estate Distillery. 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

Fiona Boyd-Armstrong said;
“We are extremely proud and passionate about Shortcross Gin and are especially proud to have launched the first craft distillery.”

The Distillery is passionate about hand crafting and creating only the finest, artisan premium spirits products. In creating Shortcross Gin, David and Fiona take the time and passion to ensure that every aspect of their gin is perfected by hand. From handpicking and sourcing the finest botanicals, drawing their own fresh water, distilling in a bespoke copper still, to bottling and labelling, every element of Shortcross Gin is created by hand to meet the couples exacting standards for exceptional quality.

Fiona finished by adding;
“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 is currently being distributed by James Nicholson Wine Merchants 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.
