To help mark World Gin Day this weekend, Ashford Castle has shared a five star gin cocktail recipe.

Last month, Ashford Castle and the Shed Distillery, the home of Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, launched a bright exotic gin with the fresh and subtle flavours of citrus and honey.

The exclusive gin was created in close partnership with the team at Ashford Castle led by Noli Alngohuro, Bar and Lounge Manager, who has created this Gin Blossoms cocktail.

The new Ashford Castle Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin edition is available online from Mrs Tea’s Boutique & Bakery on the Ashford Castle Estate and The Shed Distillery Experience gift shop in Drumshanbo (€65).
