Located in the rolling hills of County Down, just outside Crossgar, Rademon Estate Distillery - the home of Shortcross Gin and Shortcross Irish Whiskey – has opened its historic gates once again to Distillery Tours. Embrace the spirit of Shortcross with a Shortcross Discovery Tour Experience which includes a 70cl personalised bottle of Shortcross Gin.

The perfect afternoon for friends or for a special occasion, the Shortcross Discovery Tour includes an introduction to Rademon Estate Distillery and its rich history, a walk through the distillery, including seeing Shortcross casks and copper stills first-hand, experiencing hand wax dipping and personalising your own bottle of Shortcross Gin.

Reflective of the art of craft distilling, a tour to Shortcross conveys the small batch love and care that’s taken to deliver a true craft gin, and one that has plenty of spirit. Following your tour, no visit to the distillery is complete without a gin tasting, and guests are encouraged to sit back and sip a Shortcross gin and tonic after learning how to pour the perfect G&T. Local charcuterie and grazing plates are available, and the Shortcross Bottle Shop is open so that you can re-create the perfect G&T at home.

Shortcross Discovery Tours run every Friday and Saturday. Tasting tours are priced at £25.50pp and Discovery Tours, which include a personalised bottle of Shortcross, cost £49.95pp. Following the launch of Shortcross Irish Whiskey in late 2021, Shortcross Irish Whiskey tours commence at the end of March.
