Edinburgh Gin

Born in 2010, Edinburgh Gin is distilled in the heart and harbour of Scotland’s capital city.

Taking inspiration from the wonder-filled city that is their namesake – a captivating city of contrasts and harmony that blends historic tradition with contemporary creativity, city pride with world citizenship, nature and the urban environment.

Beginning with the Classic, a world-class London Dry, which became the foundation for a series of expressions that led the flavoured gin revolution.

Today, Edinburgh Gin’s suite of beautifully crafted and naturally flavoured gins spans London Dry’s, Gin Liqueurs, Flavoured Gins and Ready To Drink serves. Together they represent one of the most varied and vibrant range of gins in the world.

1. Edinburgh Gin & Tonic

The zesty notes of the classic gin are complemented by a garnish of fresh orange peel.

Edinburgh Cannonball Gin is a gin that lives up to its evocative name. Bottled at 57.2% abv, 100% proof. This higher alcohol content allows distillers to add more botanicals, strong in both alcohol and flavour.

Edinburgh’s Master Distiller has taken great care to get Rhubarb & Ginger Gin just right. Beautifully balanced and crafted, warm spiciness, tangy sweetness, more juniper and more gin. This Rhubarb & Ginger Gin may be inspired by their Liqueur, a true original – but is distinctive in its own right.
