Edinburgh Gin is a classic juniper forward gin back with wonderful citrus notes. Edinburgh Gin is batch distilled using two methods; a potstill and a column still. The stills are located in the brand new Edinburgh Gin distillery in the heart of the city. Partnering with the Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, this distillery offers the head distiller and grad student a platform to recreate old Scottish Gin recipes; such as Edinburgh Gin. After the traditional botanicals are used, they add an additional Scottish juniper as well as heather and pine. Edinburgh Gin’s clean citrus notes and aromatic juniper makes it the perfect base for a gin and tonic or a Martini, not to mention many of the classic gin cocktail.
Distinctively Scottish Distilled in a hand-beaten Scottish copper pot still using thirteen classic botanicals including juniper berries, citrus peel and coriander seed. Edinburgh Gin’s distinctively Scottish character comes from Scottish juniper, pine heather and milk thistle.
Produced in small-batch quantities ensuring that only the finest quality ingredients are used to produce a refreshing clean, crisp gin. At 43% ABV Edinburgh Gin holds the premium gin status.

The first, the 86 proof namesake, is a classic London Dry style with a twist of citrus. Juniper is clear on the nose. It is far less pronounced on the palate, where coriander and citrus, plus a touch of pine on the mid-palate, give great complexity and depth. It is a very clean, bite-free spirit. Use this in martinis or with good tonic. Highly Recommended.
Scotland is a hotbed of gin distillationyou might not know it, but that classic 'London' gin, Tanqueray, is distilled thereso it's nice to see a brand proudly trumpeting its Scottish origins. I loved the warm, spicy notes in this one rounded off with a little lemon zest bitterness.

"Thirteen botanicals come to the call of this hand beaten copper potdistilled Scottish gin. The pillowy texture fluffs against the palate, harboring notes of mountain herbs, marshmallow, leek root and subtle pine. The juniper and coriander are reined in and a lime-heather essence breathes through beautifully. This is a platinum beauty."
Edinburgh Gin, which uses distinctly Scottish botanicals such as heather and milk thistle, arrived on the scene in 2013. Last summer the Heads and Tales bar opened at the distillery underneath the Rutland Hotel, with two custom-made stills so you can watch the gin production process on a distillery tour, or try your hand at making your own. Aside from its own product, Heads and Tales offers a menu that features a large collection of Scottish gins, including Caorunn, made with Celtic botanicals hand-foraged from the Highlands, and the Botanist from the traditionally whisky producing island of Islay.

"Clear. Aromas of peppery ginger bread, juniper blossoms, and faint dried citrus with a silky, dryish medium body and a smooth citrus custard, anise, pink peppercorn marmalade, cucumber, rose water, and mineral finish. Nice delicate complexity and style. A super gin and tonic gin."
