Rademon Distillery in the stunning Rademon Estate in county Down.
A family Affair
Rademon distillery founded in 2012, in the stunning Rademon Estate, Downpatrick; a distillery which meets an exacting vision held by husband and wife team, Fiona and David Boyd-Armstrong. In August 2015 they sealed their first casks of of Irish Malt Whiskey. An exciting time for this award winning distillery. Everything in Rademon distillery is crafted and perfected by hand as much as is feasible possible to do so.
Fiona and David have been making waves in the drinks industry with their much loved Shortcross Gin, which was ‘ inspired by its surroundings of lush gardens and forest fauna’ on their Rademon estate. This small batch gin is made using their custom made still, which features a 450 litre copper pot still and two enrichment columns. Fiona and David have just completed a 20-month investment programme, their new stills are now considered to be the most advanced gin still’s in use on the island of Ireland.
They are proud to be producing grain to glass malt whiskey, all on site with their very own well in situ; with no third party spirit to be used. Earlier this year they have increased their whiskey distilling capacity by over 500%. With the installation of a new bespoke 1,750L Copper Pot Still solely dedicated to producing the single malt whiskey. There are also plans to play around with different casks, giving them unique flavour profiles making their whiskey standout and be something of intrigue to their whiskey enthusiasts.
