Northern Irelands first award winning gin distillery was established in 2014 by Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong with a mission to create and lead the resurgence in gin distilling, taking their inspiration from the gardens of their home Rademon Estate. From cultivating their unique botanicals through to wax-sealing each bottle by hand, each batch of Shortcross Gin is nurtured and hand crafted. Team Shortcross are a small, dedicated team of foraging, distilling, sipping, bottling experts who believe that every detail matters; are they obsessive? Absolutely!
