Rademon Estate Distillery is our favourite kind of Distillery story; two people take a notion, quit their day jobs, open a distillery, make a gin, buy some casks, and start squirrelling away the whiskey. Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong have added a beautiful garnish to their version of this archetypal story though – they’re outstanding at what they do. Shortcross is one of most highly awarded Gins coming out of Ireland, so good you could almost forget they’re biding their time to launch what will be an amazing addition to the Whiskey world, almost. Rademon Estate story started back in 2012, it would be a year until their careful recipe development yielded Shortcross, the distilleries flagship spirit. Shortcross is a product with more than a subtle nod to place. Nestled on their name sake Estate in the beautiful Northern Irish countryside, the Rademon team, pick a list of botanicals, including of course clovers. This list with the help of their beautiful still produce an smoothly textured spirit with character.
