Founded in 2012 by husband & wife team Fiona and 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 NI. Since then Shortcross Gin has received global acclaim, winning over 27 major international spirits awards to date.
Aspiring to create a gin reminiscent of the forests and gardens on Rademon Estate; lush, verdant and alive with nature, 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-L 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 including Republic of Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Finland, Australia, Dubai & regions of Canada.
Due to this success, Rademon Estate Distillery undertook a £2.5m investment program, completed in April 18: installing a 1071 L gin still, adding production of a single malt Irish whiskey & 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.
