Sling Shot is produced and bottled at Lough Ree Micro Distillery in Lanesborough, Co. Longford. First distillery to ever distil peat as a botanical in gin. The peat creates an incredibly rich and smooth mouthfeel, while adding a deliciously earthy finish to our otherwise bold and fresh Irish gin.
Seven classic gin botanicals are used in their base recipe- Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Orris Root, along with Lemon Balm, Cardamom and Celery Seed. A Citrus distillate from fresh organic Oranges, Pink Grapefruit, Lemons and Limes; a fresh mint distillate and finally a distillate of local peat is added too.
The citrus and mint give beautifully fresh top notes, the juniper and cardamom in particular add spice and boldness while the peat finishes it off with an earthiness and rounded mouthfeel, balanced with a hint of freshness from the mint.
