Shortcross Gin - 70cl - 46% ABV
Founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong, Rademon Estate Distillery is located outside Downpatrick, County Down. Created to be a classical gin with a unique twist, Shortcross is a fantastic addition to the category and, as a distillery, deserves to be celebrated for re-invigorating the now almost lost craft-distilling legacy of the area.
Shortcross Gin -
Aspiring to create something unique and which was reminiscent of the surrounding forests and gardens at Rademon Estate, owners David and Fiona foraged wild clover from local sources. The gin also includes elderflowers and elderberries, which combine to create both uplifting floral notes and smooth sweet flavours, whilst the homegrown green apples contribute fresh aromas and lively sweet notes.
These regional botanicals are combined with juniper, coriander seeds, lemon peel, orange peel and cassia to a wheat spirit base in order to create a balanced gin. Cut with pure fresh water drawn from their historic estate well, Shortcross Gin is bottled at 46% ABV in small batches of 200 – 300 bottles at a time. Try it, it will not let you down!
