Welcome to The Shed Distillery, and the Curious Mind of PJ Rigney It takes an inquisitive, questing spirit to produce the most remarkable results.

Through the years, PJ Rigney has taken many journeys from the familiar into terra incognita. In time, those travels brought him here, to the wild and unspoilt landscape of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim. And it was here that his curious mind, filled with the great oriental traditions of distilling fruit, herbs and botanicals, got to work. He created The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney, with its medieval copper pot stills, and began a quest to fuse oriental botanicals with the local Irish ones. As it turned out, they got on very well indeed. The result of this passionate exploration is Drumshanbo. Gunpowder Irish Gin – unique, extraordinary and as remarkable as the elusive creature PJ has occasionally glimpsed in the fields, the Drumshanbo Jackalope.

Why Us

While every bottle produced at the distillery is hand-filled, labelled and sealed by the dedicated team of distillers, The Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is slow-distilled by hand in medieval copper pot stills with Oriental botanicals and gunpowder tea.
