The distillers at Rademon Estate Distillery in Co. Down have released a new batch of their award-winning Shortcross Cask Aged Gin. Three casks of the expression were laid to rest this year with a limited number of bottles now available to purchase across UK & Ireland.
To create the aged gin, Shortcross Gin was rested in French oak casks from the Chateau de La Ligne in Bordeaux that had previously contained the Chateau Cuvee Prestige wine. The casks were hand-picked by Head Distiller David Boyd-Armstrong with the help of the chateau owner, Terry Cross.
Commenting on the release, David Boyd-Armstrong, Head Distiller and Operations Director, said: “The release of our first batch of Shortcross Cask Aged Gin took place earlier this year and was an incredible success. Due to the unprecedented demand for this new Shortcross expression we decided to release another batch of our highly commended Shortcross Cask Aged Gin in the run up to Christmas, providing us with the perfect opportunity to offer a unique product and gift during the festive period.”
Rademon Estate Distillery is the producer of the international award-winning Shortcross Gin. Founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong, Rademon Estate Distillery is located at the couple’s family estate near Downpatrick, Co. Down.
