Shortcross Gin Launch Rosie's Garden Gin
We're tickled pink with the news that Shortcross Gin has launched their version of a very pink Gin, Rosie's Garden Gin.
The award winning distillers and members of the Good Food Ireland Collection, Shortcross Gin in Co. Down, have recently added to their impressive repertoire with the addition of Rosie's Garden Gin, the first of its kind to be made in Northern Ireland. With no added sugar or additives and an enticing vibrant pink colour, it’s sure to blossom across the Emerald Isle and the UK this summer as it rolls out among popular retailers and bars.
In celebration of their 5 year anniversary, the team at Rademon Estate have unveiled Rosie’s Garden Gin, inspired by Fiona’s mother, Rosie. Showcasing an array of botanicals and fruits including strawberries, raspberries alongside lavender and camomile, the pink gin stays true to the heritage of Shortcross Gin, remaining juniper led.
Head Distiller, David Boyd-Armstrong says, “We chose to vapour infuse the lavender and camomile on our new copper pot still so that we could draw out the delicate flavours and aromas of these botanicals without them competing or being hidden by the other botanicals in the gin.”
Taking inspiration from their home, Rademon Estate, Managing Director, Fiona Boyd-Armstrong made clear that, “Provenance is hugely important to us, for Rosie’s Garden Gin we sought inspiration from my mum, Rosie, always tending to the fruits and herbs in her 18th century walled garden. We started back in summer 2017, picking fruits and botanicals from the walled gardens to see how best we could craft a gin that links to the heritage of our home.”
The gin is unique to the marketplace as the only pink gin distilled on the island of Ireland that has no added sugar. Head Distiller, David adds, “Rather than follow the path of the sugar rich, low flavour products occupying the fruit and flavoured category, we wanted to create a gin that would lend itself to be enjoyed as a gin and tonic, or crafted into the perfect cocktail.”
The perfect summer sipping gin does exist! And it’s already flying off the shelves in stores around Ireland and the UK. Rosie’s Garden Gin is perfectly served as a classic Gin & Tonic and as a refreshing cocktail.
