Shortcross Gin Bottling Note

Shortcross Gin is made by Northern Irish craft gin distillery, Rademon Estate. This small batch gin is made using their custom made still, which features a 450 litre copper pot still and two enrichment columns. Using intriguing botanicals like fresh apple, elderberry and wild clover, as well as juniper, coriander, orange peel, lemon peel and cassia, they produce a vibrant, floral style of gin that befits savouring it neat, as well as enjoying with tonic.

Why not try an Irish Spice Trader, created by 56 North for St. Patrick's Day 2016?

- 50ml Shortcross Gin

- 10ml Lillet Blanc

- 20ml Fresh lemon juice

- 5-8ml (a bar spoon) Sugar Syrup

- Cardamom pods (4)

- Fresh mint leaves

- Orange peel

- Chilli Bitters (to taste)

Muddle the Cardamom pods in a shaker to break them. Add the Shortcross, lemon, Lillet and sugar syrup. Shake hard with ice for around 90 seconds. Add the mint and gently toss for another 30 seconds or so (the mint should be bruised but not smashed to bits). Double strain into a martini or coupe glass. Garnish with a generous twist of orange and serve with Chilli Bitters (to be added carefully for some spice!).

Nose: Juniper and orange peel forward, followed by light mint, elderberry and perfumed coriander notes.

User Reviews of the Shortcross Gin

The perfect G&T

I have been on a quest for the perfect G&T. I find a lot of gins a little too acerbic but Shortcross has a soft yet complex juniper and sweet floral taste which is all brought together by a twist of orange peel and decent tonic water (personally I use FeverTree.) Best G&T I ever sipped.

Not a good gin

I would honestly say this was an average gin at best. In our household we have renamed it shortcut gin as really below average. Think I will stay with Other gins.

I bought this at Fortnum & Mason's who are currently promoting northern Ireland produce. It's the best gin I've ever tasted and it will be hard to go back to anything else. I love the fact that it is Irish and small batch.

This was an impulse purchase at the Belfast International duty free and I'm so pleased we did. It is amazing! By far the best gin we've had. It won't be the last time we buy this gin!!

Tasted this in the Merchant Hotel in Belfast this weekend with a twist of orange peel and it is delicious. Well worth a tipple!

The 'Wow' factor in a glass

Had my first taste of this in Castle Leslie, Co. Monaghan, a few weeks ago. It was served with apple sticks, a chunk of orange and Fever Tree tonic (possibly the Mediterranean). So delicious!!
