Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin Reviews

Delightful true gin

Awesome! Subtle and slow distilled comes out strongly

19th October 2020

New Favorite Martini

First encounter was an EXTRA dry martini at Blend in Pensacola, FL; true love! A fabulous alternative to Bombay Sapphire!

28th April 2020

Outstanding - a real discovery

Exotic, delicious with several layers of discovery. Outstanding.

12th April 2020

One of the best

One of my favourites. You can taste the tea. Everyone I have shared it with loves it.

21st November 2019


One of the best if not the ...

21st September 2019

A very good gin

Love it. Spicey and refreshing. On a par with Hendricks

10th June 2019

Love it! My new favorite!

This is not what I call a sipping Gin (I prefer Tanqueray 10), but it is a 5 Star Gin for gin & tonics. It has a front row seat in my bar. My ancestors are Irish, so I have to support the Mother Country.

2nd May 2019

Just Wow!

Drumshanbo... Tried it last week and I must say, I can still hear the Drum in the Shanbo!!! I love it how it makes my palate shake to its core. Tea? I love it!

11th March 2019

Love it

Love this gin. One of my all time favourites. You can taste the tea which I love but it is not too overpowering.

7th February 2019

Simply the best.

Pure magic. You can drink it neat, it's that good. It deserves a special tonic if you go that route.

1st January 2019

The best one I ever drunk, thank you

Excellent taste so fine, almost to good to mix.
The tast is so good on it's own.

6th December 2018

the most delicious gin ever - Bravo

Delicious. Drank it in the George V hotel in Paris today for first time. The most delicious gin I can remember. Bravo.

29th November 2018

This gin is absolutely fantastic

Here in the 5 star Ashford Castle Hotel and just had this wonderful gin served with fresh red grapefruit. This gin is absolutely fantastic. Delicious with a long finish.

Definately worth a try, as Donald Trump would say: " What have you got to lose?"

I'm writing this as I'm enjoying my second gin & tonic at an Irish pub called Bantry Bay in L.I.C., N.Y. and it's really an eye opener! Normally I'm satisfied with Beefeater or Tanqueray, but the bartender suggested I try the Gunpowder gin because she had a relative who recently brought a bottle back from Ireland and I was pleasantly surprised at its complexity. At first I thought she had given me ginger ale instead of tonic because it had a subtle sweetness (not overpowering, but enhancing). Nope, all the flavor came from the gin itself, not the tonic as evidenced by a sample of it straight which I tried immediately after the first drink mixed with regular tonic. I'm not really a martini drinker, but I'm interested to see how it pairs with vermouth, (not now, but on my next episode of brain cell destruction)! Anyway, I would reccomend any lover of gin to try this, it might not be to everyone's taste, but like the Lotto slogan says: "Hey, you never know!"

22nd August 2018

Probably the worlds best tasting gin

Stunning, Exotic, Delicious - with layers of discovery underneath fresh citrus flavours

22nd July 2018

My New Favorite

My wife picked up a bottle for Fathers Day. I really enjoy it. Great flavor.

23rd June 2018

Complex. Bitter. Sweet. Smooth. Everything!

This has to be THE most complex brew I've ever tasted! It is heavy on the citrus flavors, which I absolutely loooove, but the juniper clearly comes through, as you would expect from a good gin. I get most of the flavors -- except the orris, which I don't know what it tastes like, and... the gunpowder tea! The angelica and coriander give subtle support in the background. This is such an a-ma-zing creation! Makes the most mind-blowing gin and tonic imho, but it is too good for any other mixer - just having it neat will do just fine

14th June 2018

Eye opener

Didn't realize the Irish produce excellent gin! This was excellent! The herbs and the botanicals Product such a distinguished and elegant gin! Tried it with mango and chili.

4th June 2018


Absolutely divine!!!! Has surpassed Ophir Gin as my favourite!!

5th May 2018

My Favourite

I love this gin! Definitely my favourite garnished with orange. 100% recommend!

4th May 2018


It is my favourite gin by far.

2nd May 2018

Gun powder

Love it..easy drinking refreshing gin and goes down a treat! Try it stirred and straight up in a martini glass with a slice of orange or grapefruit. Or with an elderflower tonic, or be adventurous and add muddle some basil and sugar and top with soda. However you decide to drink it, it's full of flavor and won't disappoint.

10th March 2018

Best gin hands down!

This gin got me started in gin! It is undeniably beautiful, I like it with Fentiman's tonic water and a lemon slice and cucumber sliver. Perfect!

11th January 2018

Five star

Excellent gin different taste to most gins. Tried with fever tree. Tonic

25th December 2017

High quality Irish Gin

I tried this for the first time recently and really enjoyed it. Very smooth and goes well with tonic.

16th December 2017

How can you NOT love it?

Its purely spectacular. A wedge of lemon and 3 or 4 juniper berries in with Fever Tree Tonic and it's game over.

26th September 2017

ok now and again

Listoke 1777 Irish gin is way better than this and not as expensive

9th September 2017

Best gin ever

Awesome. This made me love gin!

19th August 2017

Best gin tonic

The main ingredient in one of the best gin tonic I ever had while enjoying Dublin for the first time

15th July 2017

Great gin, bigger bottle?

Lovely gin, dry and a slight hint of anise. To me Mason's Yorkshire is top, but this is a very close second, pushing Hendricks into 3rd.

10th June 2017


Heard great things about this, unfortunately not to my taste, over reliance on the grapefruit, almost bitterly dry.

3rd May 2017

Délicieux et rafraichissant

Un gin très fin, de prime abord assez classique et sec, mais avec la composante thé qui apporte une dimension végétale fraiche fort sympathique.

11th April 2017

Over rated.

To be honest I felt it was terrible. 6 Gin drinkers and I had this last night and not one of us was impressed. Bit rough around the edges.

2nd April 2017

Lovely unique gin

Really love the star anise coming through. Even better with a star anise garnish and fever tree tonic. Love drinking this in Belfast.

19th March 2017

Fresh and crisp!

This one is very special! An incredible gin!
Very clever indeed! Sharp citrusy notes with a punchy star anise finish.

7th March 2017

It didn't appeal to me sadly but that's because ...

The star anise comes through quiet strong so be sure this flavour appeals to you before opening.

5th March 2017

A real gin addict needs this in their collection!

I'm a big gin fan and have now well over 50 bottles, this one that will still be here after the rest are forgotten about! Tops the list of my favourites with Monkey 47 and Hendricks.

5th March 2017

Refreshing, interesting, delicious.

I'm marginally biased. I grew up not too far from where this is made. I wanted it to be delicious because I had to import it into Australia. It is worth every penny of the sales cost plus import tax. Crisp, citrussy, with a strong yet fresh flavour profile. For me, it's taken Hendrick's spot as the perfect summer gin.

30th December 2016


I only began drinking gin about a year ago, and was introduced to DG a month ago. I have found my drink. Really, really pleasurable.

4th October 2016

Can this be topped


2nd October 2016

Little bit of magic!

This gin is absolutely fantastic!!!
