All about Edinburgh Gin

The Edinburgh Gin Distillery produces its signature Edinburgh Gin, along with a number of Gin-based flavoured Liqueurs, including elderflower, raspberry and rhubarb & ginger.

The signature Gin is made with Scottish Juniper, along with locally sourced heather and milk thistle. Pine adds a freshness both on the nose and the palate, and traditional Gin botanicals, including coriander and citrus peel, only add to the clean flavor.

The traditional botanicals are macerated with the Gin distillate before being reduced to bottling strength at 43%.

All about Edinburgh Gin distillery

Between 2010 and 2014, Edinburgh Gin started life 300 miles south of the city, at the Langley Distillery in the West Midlands.

This was where the Scottish grain Spirit was distilled, along with traditional Gin botanicals including juniper, coriander seeds, angelica and citrus peels.

Once the first distillation was complete, the Spirit was shipped back up to the Edinburgh Gin Distillery where local botanicals, including milk thistle and heather, were added and the distillate was watered down to its 43% bottling strength.

Since July 2014, however, the entire process has taken place at the Edinburgh Distillery, when founders Alex and Jane Nicol decided to bring the entire operation ‘in-house’ – which is great news for visitors to the distillery or its bar, who can watch the process take place over a G&T.
