Shortcross gin to be sold at Dublin Airport
Shortcross, a gin distilled at an estate in Co Down, is to be sold at a shop in Dublin Airport.
The company is run by husband-and-wife team David and Fiona Boyd-Armstrong, who make the drink at Rademon Estate just outside Downpatrick.
Now it will be sold at The Loop at Dublin Airport, after an introduction secured through NI Connections - a global network that links up people and helps them make personal and business connections.
Shortcross Gin is hitting shelves in the The Loop stores in Terminal One and Terminal Two at Dublin Airport. Andrew Cowan, the network's chief executive, introduced the Shortcross team to Paul Neeson, a Queen's graduate from Ballymena who is now global buying and merchandising director at Dublin Airport.
That introduction prompted Mr Neeson to consider listing the product. Mr Cowan said: "This is a great example of what NI Connections is all about, making connections that mutually benefit our members, helping them to widen their networks, make new contacts to collaborate with and ultimately to grow their businesses."
