Edinburgh Gin Distillery’s trio of Fruit Gin Liqueurs—Raspberry, Elderflower, and Rhubarb & Ginger, each 20% ABV/40 proof, in 750 ml. bottles—are infused with native fruits farmed in Scotland. Their base spirit is Edinburgh Gin—which is distilled via two methods, in a pot still named ‘Caledonia’ and a column still called ‘Flora—that is itself a blend of 13 classic botanicals, including juniper berries, citrus peel and coriander seed.
The Edinburgh Raspberry Gin Liqueur is intensely fruity and made with juicy Perthshire raspberries, boasting a deep, jam-filled flavor. Perthshire, Scotland is celebrated for producing the most flavorsome soft fruit, and this liqueur’s raspberries come from a family owned farm in Alyth, Blairgowrie. The fruit is picked at peak ripeness to ensure the perfect balance; promising just the right amount of sweetness to balance the fruit’s natural tartness.
Tasting Notes This is a luscious, fruity liqueur with a definitive juicy berry flavor and aroma. It is viscous and intensely flavored with a balance of sweet ripeness and refreshing tartness.
Serving Suggestions Edinburgh Gin’s Raspberry Liqueur is ideal for bringing a summery flavor to classic drinks, adding to sparkling wine or even for use in fruit-based desserts.
Fresh lime is an ideal counterpoint to the liqueur’s natural sweetness, and also the reason the assured raspberry flavor mixes perfectly with a dry prosecco.
