About Our Member

Rademon Estate, home of Shortcross Gin, was founded by Fiona and David Boyd Armstrong. While producing award-winning distilled spirits, they also run a top-quality visitor centre on-site so that visitors can see first hand the magic of Shortcross Gin!

Fiona and David have travelled the world honing their skills and have worked tirelessly in order to realise their dream of producing premium spirits and rekindling the distilling tradition within Ireland. And so, the dream started with gin, a spirit Fiona and David had always been enthusiastic and passionate about.

Each and every bottle is a labour of love for this couple and is a true representation of the land on which they live. Shortcross Gin is inspired by the rich lush grounds of the Rademon Estate. Wild clover, elderflower and elderberries are foraged on the estate, to give aromatic and floral notes, apple crispness and sweet juicy hints. David and Fiona have remained true their humble beginnings by continuing the tradition of hand signing each bottle of gin produced at their distillery.
