Gunpowder Tea is so called because each tea leaf has been rolled into a small ball, reminiscent of gunpowder. It’s usually made with green tea leaves and it’s that special ingredient that gives Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin its name.

But beyond that, Gunpowder Gin is a complex array of botanicals from a number of traditions. Three kinds of citrus fruit: grapefruit, lemon and makrut lime join the tea and are vapor distilled. The remaining ingredients, including Macedonian juniper, are macerated and distilled in a pot still.

There’s the legendary American Jackelope on the bottle; Chinese tea as a signature botanical, but Gunpowder Gin is made in Drumshanbo, Ireland.

Nose: Spicy nose of juniper, Star Anise and Angelica Root with fresh lime and grapefruit in support, along with an exotic touch of Gunpower Tea.

Taste: Smooth bodied with more fresh lemon, lime and grapefruit on the palate. The Gunpower Tea comes alive on the midpalate together with the spicier botanicals.

Finish: Long spicy finish with Cardamon, Orris Root and Star Anise balanced by the Gunpowder Tea and subdued fruit notes.
