New from Scotland
"Our Gin starts life in a revered 200 year old Scottish copper pot still, where the finest Scottish grain spirit is distilled in the traditional way, together with the classic gin botanicals, such as juniper, coriander, citrus peel, angelica and orris root. What makes Edinburgh Gin so unique and distinctive, are the carefully selected, notoriously soft Scottish botanicals, which are mixed with heather and milk thistle, and added at the final production stage. The gin is finally bottled in Edinburgh at 43% ABV.
"When gin became the fashionable spirit in the nineteenth century, Edinburgh distillers, like their London counterparts, produced a gin which was a direct copy of Dutch jenever to cater for demand. Like the London distillers they had everything they needed arriving in the bustling Port of Leith — sugar, spices, fruit and grain. We hope in a small way to revive Edinburgh's fantastic distilling and liqueur manufacturing legacy and build upon it..."
