Rademon Estate Distillery

Rademon Estate Distillery Featured Image

Founded in 2012 by husband & wife team Fiona & David Boyd–Armstrong, Rademon Estate Distillery is located on the couple’s family estate just outside Crossgar, Co Down.

Their flagship spirit, Shortcross Gin, came to market in 2014 and was the first craft gin to be distilled in Northern Ireland. Since then Shortcross Gin has received global acclaim, winning over 27 major international spirits awards to date.

Fiona and David forage elderflowers, elderberries, apples and wild clover on the estate to use in their distillation.

With a focus on delivering exceptional quality, Shortcross Gin is distilled on a 450–litre bespoke copper pot still with two enrichment columns before being hand bottled, labelled and wax dipped on site at Rademon.

Shortcross Gin has seen rapid growth and is exported to markets across the globe including the Republic of Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Finland, Australia, Dubai and regions of Canada.

Due to this success, Rademon Estate Distillery undertook a £2.5m investment program, completed in April 2018: installing a 1071 litre gin still, adding production of a single malt Irish whiskey, and building a dedicated visitor centre.

  • Shortcross Gin ABV 46% 700ml – Foraged elderflower, elderberries, apples and wild clover combine with classic gin botanicals to create a classical juniper forward gin with uplifting floral notes and smooth, sweet flavours with a long smooth finish. The ultimate Shortcross serve is a G&T using elderflower tonic, garnished with orange zest and mint.
  • Shortcross Gin, Cask Aged Limited Edition
  • Shortcross Gin, Wild Clover Limited Edition
