The makers of Shortcross Gin at Rademon Estate Distillery in Co. Down, have completed a significant redevelopment of the distillery, which will treble the facility’s production capacity.The addition of two brand-new copper stills, part of a 20-month investment programme, will allow for a 50,000 litre per annum output.
Rademon Estate Distillery was founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong, at their historic family estate just outside Crossgar, Co. Down. Since it opened, the distillery has made a big impact on Ireland’s burgeoning craft spirits market, by increasing its brewing and distilling capacity by more than 500%.
“The completion of this sizeable investment marks an important milestone for Rademon Estate Distillery,” said David Boyd-Armstrong, “as we upscale our production to meet growing demand for Shortcross Gin. This is also an exciting time as we prepare to test the first batch of our new Single Malt Irish Whiskey, with a view to release later this year, or in early 2019.”
