Leitrim’s Shed distillery all set to launch visitor experience

Drumshanbo’s Shed Distillery is to launch its Visitor Experience at the food hub next month.

The 3 million euro centre, which is home to Gunpowder Irish Gin features a botanical glass house, a journey through the distillery, two separate tasting bars as well as a café and gift shop.

The local team behind the build includes building contractor Shane McGovern, architect Enda McKiernan, Landscapers Ardcarne Garden Centre, Ronan Tiernan Electrics and The Sign Warehouse, located at the Foodhub itself

Owners and founders, Pat and Denise Rigney hope it will attract 30,000 visitors to the area and to create over 20 new jobs when fully operational.

Pat Rigney says they had a tough decision to make when the pandemic took hold.
