Edinburgh / Gin Elderflower / 750mL
Category: Spirit - Gin - Flavored
It is a honeyed, flavourful libation that’s an ideal counterpoint to sharper flavours.
1777 there were eight licensed distilleries and almost 400 illegal stills in Edinburgh and the Port of Leith. As gin rose to become the fashionable spirit, Edinburgh distillers, like their London counterparts, produced gin from locally sourced ingredients. Then juniper berries, spices and citrus fruits arrived daily in Leith from all over the world. These exotic ‘botanicals’ were redistilled or ' rectified' together with the finest Scottish grain spirit in the time honoured fashion. Edinburgh Gin is a reminder of the days when Edinburgh was a centre of distilling expertise. It is batch distilled in “Jenny” a much treasured Scottish copper pot still using traditional gin botanicals. Then they add extra Scottish Juniper as well as heather and milk thistle. Edinburgh Gin's clean citrus notes and aromatic Juniper make it the perfect base for a Gin and Tonic or Martini, not to mention many of the classic gin cocktails.
Edinburgh Gin is 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.
