The Shed Distillery is the first distillery in the West of Ireland in over 101 years. Opened in 2016 by the team of PJ Rigney and his wife Denise, The Shed Distillery marks a return to doing it the right way, combined with creativity and excitement.

On the shores of Lough Allen, at the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn, lies The Shed Distillery of P.J. Rigney in the tiny rural village of Drumshanbo. In the province of Connacht in the west of Ireland.

The most important part of the decision to locate The Shed Distillery in Drumshanbo is its remoteness, its wildness, the road less traveled and how it plays to the curious mind of PJ Rigney. Consumers today want to be invigorated by new and real experiences. Drumshanbo is the perfect location to create real and brilliant brands at our distillery.

The Shed Distillery is about creating challenging brands with shared experiences. Consumers are seeking experiences they can share with others to enrich their daily life and escape life's pressures. Deeper and richer experiences. They are not experiences until they are shared.

This is where the magic happens for Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin. Named after where it is made (Drumshanbo) as well as the main ingredient (Gunpowder Tea), this Gin is truly an experience not to be missed.

Darnleys View Gin is a product of a family recipe and captures the moment in 1565 when Mary Queen of Scots spied her future husband, Lord Darnley, through the courtyard window at Wemyss Castle. From this marriage came a prince who later united the thrones of England and Scotland as James VI and Ist. We like to think of Darnleys son, conceived through a union that began at Wemyss, as a symbol of our desire to combine the best of England and Scottish distilling to create a unique gin. Why London and not Scotland given our Scottish heritage? Simple. Because we want to create a completely authentic gin in gins historic home; one which would appeal to those who appreciate the history and provenance of this iconic white spirit.

Flavors: Juniper, herbaceous, fresh, elegant, celery on the nose, comprised of many herbs and botanicals.

Brockmans unique recipe of naturally grown aromatic botanicals are steeped in pure grain spirit for many hours to release their natural oils and aromas. The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild berries. Bulgarian coriander plays its part, providing an aromatic, gingery orange top note. This blends perfectly with the soft and rounded harmonies of blueberries and blackberries, all of which is supported by the bottom note of Tuscan juniper berries. Dry, bittersweet Valencian orange peel elongates the deeper tones and gives an intensely smooth finish.
