Our The story of Sling Shot Distilled Irish Gin, made in Lanesborough, Co Longford, and how it got its name. Our locality is surrounded by ancient peat bogs and inspired by that, our Sling Shot Distilled Irish Gin is the only spirit that uses Peat as a botanical. This makes it the very essence of terroir. We also use Irish Mint and Organic Citrus along with classic gin botanicals to produce a gin with amazing earthiness and complexity. Sling Shot has a wonderful mouthfeel so it’s a great gin for cocktails or to serve with a premium tonic. Since we launched Sling Shot less than 2 years ago, it has won 10 awards including four golds at international tasting competitions, making it one of the most awarded Irish Gins. Sling Shot pours in Ireland’s finest bars and restaurants, where it is highly regarded for its quality, provenance and the complexity it brings to cocktails.
