The Shed Distillery is the first distillery in the West of Ireland in over 101 years. Opened in 2016 by the team of PJ Rigney and his wife Denise, The Shed Distillery marks a return to doing it the right way, combined with creativity and excitement.
On the shores of Lough Allen, at the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn, lies The Shed Distillery of P.J. Rigney in the tiny rural village of Drumshanbo. In the province of Connacht in the west of Ireland.
The most important part of the decision to locate The Shed Distillery in Drumshanbo is its remoteness, its wildness, the road less traveled and how it plays to the curious mind of PJ Rigney. Consumers today want to be invigorated by new and real experiences. Drumshanbo is the perfect location to create real and brilliant brands at our distillery.
The Shed Distillery is about creating challenging brands with shared experiences. Consumers are seeking experiences they can share with others to enrich their daily life and escape life's pressures. Deeper and richer experiences. They are not experiences until they are shared.
This is where the magic happens for Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin. Named after where it is made (Drumshanbo) as well as the main ingredient (Gunpowder Tea), this Gin is truly an experience not to be missed.
