Shortcross Gin Rademon Estate Distillery
Shortcross Gin is Northern Ireland’s first premium craft gin, distilled with pride at Rademon Estate Distillery in Crossgar, County Down. Their small batch philosophy ensures that every aspect of the gin meets their exacting vision. From foraging in the surrounding country estate for botanicals, to labelling, signing and wax dipping every bottle – everything is crafted and perfected by hand. Since their first release of their Classic Gin in 2015, Shortcross have welcomed the Bartender Series One Gin to their Core Product Range alongside several limited edition runs, including a Cask Finish Gin in collaboration with James Nicholson, JN Wines.com as well as their very first, very pink, Rosie’s Garden Gin. Rademon Estate Distillery is getting ready to release their first batch of Single Malt and Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.
What They Do
Spirits - Gin & Whiskey
Classic Gin - Best described as floral meadow, wild berries and grassy notes. It is a smooth gin, with an exceptionally long finish. Delicious over ice with a premium tonic water, such as Fever-Tree and a peel of fresh orange, or even drunk neat as a sipping gin. Bartender Series- Featuring Apples, Blackberries and Pears handpicked from the Walled Garden, with a twist of Raspberry and Grapefruit. The final recipe is uplifting with bright citrus and rich berry notes with a creamy lemon sherbet finish. Cask Finish - The Cask Finish gives the gin a light ruby hue, with a herbaceous floral bouquet on the nose. To taste, dark fruits lead before developing into bright juniper, followed by a balance of spice and botanical oils giving a lush, rich finish. There is an abundance of bright summer berries with notes of rose petals and vanilla, combined with lightly toasted oak and velvety tannins. Rosie's Garden Gin - Rosie’s Garden Gin features strawberries, raspberries alongside vapour-infused lavender and camomile. The gin is true to the heritage of Shortcross, remaining juniper-led. The sweetness of the strawberries and tartness of the raspberries balance the palate with subtle notes of lavender and camomile intertwined amongst fresh pine and summer fruits on the nose, making Rosie’s Garden Gin the perfect summer sip.
IWSC Silver Outstanding, San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold & Silver Medal, The Spirits Business, Gold (Super Premium Gin) and Silver (Micro Distillery) as well as securing two 2019 Gin Masters for their Classic and Bartender Series One Gins.
