“Limited Edition Ceramic Holiday Bottle” – ONLY 24 AVAILABLE

We would love to take credit and say that we found the “GUNPOWDER” Gin all on our own, but that just wouldn’t be true.  Customer suggestions or requests can lead to some of our greatest finds and recently we were asked to procure theGUNPOWDER GIN on behalf of one of our members (Thank you, R and K).  While researching this GIN, the name alone was intriguing, but after viewing the packaging (usually a beautiful blue glass bottle) and it’s affordable price point…we had to get our hands on this GIN.  Three days later, it was here.

Now, hearing “GUNPOWDER” may let the imagination wander, but in actuality it’s “name refers to Chinese gunpowder green tea, one of the four botanicals that are vapor-distilled into the gin (after it’s been pot-distilled with eight others). It might sound easy to get lost in a dozen botanicals, but the specific green tea Rigney (Master Distiller) chose for the gin lends a distinctive note to the final flavor, unique in the gin world, where juniper is more often primarily complemented by things like citrus, cucumber, and spice. And no, the tea has no ballistic uses; it’s called “gunpowder” because of the shape of the tea leaves, which are rolled into individual pellets for better preservation.” –VINEPAIR (phenomenal article on 10 Reasons to Drink Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin)

Needless to say, we have been moving A LOT OF THIS GIN with the regular blue bottle packaging and thought we couldn’t move anymore.  Then, DRUMSHANBO goes and does something like this…RELEASES A LIMITED HOLIDAY CERAMIC BOTTLE!  Only 70 six-packs of this gin were produced and your friends at CVW&S have secured five of them (30 bottles) for your purchasing/consuming pleasure.  Same price as the blue bottle, but with a little holiday flare!  Definitely snag one, two or three of these by clicking the “BUY NOW” button!
