Two new Northern Irish gins

If you're a frequent visitor of the high-end pubs of Ulster, it's time to grab your coat and head out the door with a spring in your step. There are two new gins on the shelves so dedicated sampling is called for! New to the market is Jawbox Gin: Ireland's first 'single estate gin', created in Co Down's Echlinville Distillery in Kircubbin. Named after the Belfast sink, the 43% ABV gin has a piney profile with balancing citrus and subtle rootiness. Or, if you're in the mood for lightly toasted oak and velvety tannins, you don't have far to travel. Also developed in Co Down, at Rademon Estate Distillery, the Shortcross Gin team has launched a 44% vol cask-aged limited edition of just a few hundred bottles. The profile is created by resting Shortcross Gin in French oak casks which had previously contained Cuvee Prestige wines in Bordeaux. Both gins cost £35.
