The Shed Distillery Tour


The Shed Distillery presents two distinct experiences in one tour – a Curious Journey into the Inner Sanctum of the first whiskey distillery in Connacht in 101 years and a voyage to the Far East to discover gunpowder tea, the inspiration behind Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin. Witness how every precious drop of Drumshanbo Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is slow-distilled by hand at this authentic Irish distillery and enjoy an expert whiskey tasting in the maturation hall. Embark on a curious botanical trail from Ancient China back to Drumshanbo, discovering Kaffir limes, oriental grapefruits and many another interesting botanical along the way. You will be granted entry to PJ’s secret tabernacle, home to his experiments and many strange artefacts discovered in far-off lands. Glimpse future ingredients grow in the glass botanical house, before enjoying a Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin at the Honey Badger bar. If you feel like a bite to eat, relax in the curious surrounds of our Jackalope Café, serving a range of fresh meals, snacks and speciality teas, coffees and cold beverages.


If you are curious about the distillation of Ireland’s premium spirits, then the new tour facility at The Shed Distillery will not let you down. Located on the shores of Lough Allen in the heart of the rural village Drumshanbo, Leitrim, this tour facility is full of interesting exhibitions, making it very informative for visitors. It lasts about an hour and includes tastings of the exceptional Drumshanbo Single Pot Still whiskey and Gunpowder gin. P. J. Rigney, the owner and creator of this unique establishment, has leveraged his innovation, passion and skill to create the most exceptionally smooth whiskey and the finest of Irish spirits using traditional Irish methods and ingredients. You can expect brilliant hospitality from the moment you arrive at The Shed distillery, with knowledgeable and friendly staff, delicious food on offer, and an absolutely gorgeous setting with a great atmosphere.
