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 Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur, a classic pairing, is a sweet, fruity liqueur balanced by a delicate warmth and spicy finish. Freshly picked spring-crop rhubarb is spiked with Oriental ginger and infused with the distillery’s classic Edinburgh Gin. The rhubarb and spice are left to steep for four weeks, allowing for the complex flavors to marry together.
Tasting Notes This is a luscious, fruity liqueur with a perfect balance between sweetness and a sharper tang. Warming spice and a touch of citrus drifts in from the Oriental ginger. On the nose, a bright, sweet rhubarb-filled aroma.
Serving Suggestions Edinburgh Gin’s Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur is a terrific ingredient for a variety of cocktails. Its sweetly-spiced notes are a great counterpoint to richer aromatic flavors such as candied ginger, lemongrass, or even cardamom.
