Hosted by

Fiona and David

Meet Fiona, David & Team 

Meet Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong and enjoy a guided tour of their impressive Distillery located on the grounds of their family home, Rademon Estate. Fiona and David have travelled the world honing their skills and have worked tirelessly in order to realise their dream of producing premium Spirits and rekindling the distilling tradition within Ireland. And so, the dream started with gin, a spirit Fiona and David had always been enthusiastic and passionate about. Each and every bottle is a labour of love for this couple and is a true representation of the land on which they live. Shortcross Gin is inspired by the rich lush grounds of the Rademon Estate. Wild clover, elderflower and elderberries are foraged on the estate, to give aromatic and floral notes, apple crispness and sweet juicy hints. David and Fiona have remained true their humble beginnings by continuing the tradition of hand signing each bottle of gin produced at their distillery.

About the Experience 

Upon arrival you will be greeted warmly by Fiona and David, before they and their dedicated team will take you on a journey through their small but perfectly crafted distillery. Hear the fascinating history of Rademon Estate and how Fiona and David's passion for producing craft spirits culminated in creating an award winning product loved by many. You will learn all about the foraged botanicals and will be immersed into the unique world of gin and whiskey distilling. Don’t forget to take a picture beside the immense copper sills from which the spirits are expertly crafted.
