Edinburgh isn’t only famous for its castle and festivals, it’s also home to Scotland’s favourite gin!
Edinburgh Gin is distilled in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, with a range now encompassing 7 gin liqueurs and limited edition bottles.
Here at Tipple Box HQ, we reckon everyone needs to try an Edinburgh Gin and Tonic!
THE STORY OF EDINBURGH GIN
Since launching in 2010, Edinburgh Gin has produced a wide range of gins and fruit gin liqueurs.
With two distilleries now based in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh Gin began with a classic gin recipe which quickly expanded to focus on new flavour combinations designed for experimentation.
Their current range encompasses flavoured liqueurs, from the best-selling Rhubarb and Ginger, to limited edition gins designed to mark special occasions or collaborations.
Alongside embracing Edinburgh’s gin heritage, there’s also a nod to Scotland in every bottle. The botanical blend used in the Original Gin, which also acts as the basis for the liqueur range, includes plants and botanicals sourced from around the country.
Our favourite from the Edinburgh Gin collection is the distillery’s Original Edinburgh Gin. Made in copper pot stills, Edinburgh Gin blend 14 botanicals, including the vibrant citrus of orange peel and lemongrass to softer florals of lavender and mulberries, to create a juniper-forward London Dry style of gin.
