Golden straw in colour with burnt copper hues. Delicate, fresh and creamy. We find soft hints of coconut cream, white chocolate and vanilla; there is a lot of citrus, we would say pink grapefruit if we had to go too far, and a floral freshness completes the profile (white flowers, but without reaching jasmine). Powdered sugar, a little apple pie. The palate is equally welcoming, equally delicate, perhaps even more so than on the bouquet - the texture is a little light. Very coherent, it tends to develop two scents more; apple and cereal. Then vanilla, in quantity, a little more coconut and icing sugar. The finish is more apple and cereal, then a very long drizzle of buttery cream.

A creator of new recipes, an inventor, an experimenter – PJ dreamed of building his own distillery, but not just any distillery. The location was crucial – it had to be wild, un-manicured, in the heart of rural Ireland. A place of curiosity & inspiration, surrounded by nature, immersed in rich history. He discovered the beautiful village of Drumshanbo Co.Leitrim, on the shores of Lough Allen, at the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn (The Iron Mountain), and PJ knew he had found the location for his distillery. It had to be an authentic distillery, a return to the traditional methods using gleaming copper pot and column stills, where PJ could experiment with wild grains, Irish flora, and exotic botanicals. The stills had to be state of the art to create the finest of Irish spirits. The Shed’s 5 gleaming copper pot stills – 3 focused on Irish Whiskey, and 2 on Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin – and 2 copper column stills – focusing on Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka – were especially made by Arnold Holstein in Germany and brought over to Drumshanbo, where PJ began his quest to make the Ordinary Extraordinary.
