Rademon Estate is one of the oldest in Ireland, it sits in a beautifully unique setting just 45 minutes from Belfast and has been distilling the award winning Shortcross gin since 2014. Shortcross is an aromatic and exceptionally smooth gin, created using fresh apples, elderflowers, elderberries and wild clover harvested from the Estate.
Rademon Estate is now offering a tour and tasting Gin experience for pre-booked groups, that will unlock some of the secrets and skills that go into creating Northern Ireland’s first premium craft gin. Conducted by their experienced Shortcross Team, this tour will talk you through the full process of distillation, including harvesting local botanicals, drawing fresh water from the distillery well, distilling single-shot on a 450l copper pot still and bottling and labelling the finished product. Every part of this process is crafted and perfected by hand at the Rademon Estate Distillery.
