Character Goatson
Sheep Dip's Gin brother.
 
Spencerfield Spirits Company is based in Spencerfield House, near the Firth of Forth. Set up by ex-marketing director of Glenmorangie Alex Nicol, the company is family based and proud of their heritage. Alex and his wife Jane are dedicated to bringing a range of Scottish bevrages to the market, including inventively named Sheep Dip Whisky, Pig’s Nose Whisky and Edinburgh Gin, amongst other expressions.
 
There is a lot more to Edinburgh Gin than just juniper and Scottish enthusiasm. The labelling alone is a homage to the long history of Gin with its art deco inspired design. While it holds fast to the traditional ingredients of Gin, it also mixes Scottish botanicals with heather and milk thistle to present a wonderfully herby expression. The juniper is of course present throughout, but is complemented with a whirl of floral and herbs delights.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Edinburgh Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Edinburgh Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
The Edinburgh Gin Distillery runs a number of tours, including a Gin-making experience, where you can make and bottle a one-off custom Gin, and even design the label!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
