    What Makes It Awesome

    Edinburgh Gin is a small batch distiller based in the city of Edinburgh. Since 2010, every bottle of their Gin and Gin liqueurs have been produced at their West End and Leith distilleries.  As a progressive distillery, it is their calling to design and produce innovative, industry-leading gin and liqueurs in the heart of Edinburgh. The city of Edinburgh and the port of Leith have had an illustrious history of producing, importing and exporting gin that dates back to the first gin “craze” of the 1700s. Dutch Genever flowed through Leith via the Netherlands. In fact, by 1777 alongside 8 legitimate distilleries, there were almost 400 unregistered stills in Edinburgh as the “gin craze” took off. 

    Edinburgh Gin has several gin liqueurs for you to try out starting with the Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueurs. Freshly picked rhubarb is spiked with ginger and infused with the classic Edinburgh Gin. The rhubarb and spice are left to steep for four weeks, allowing for the complex flavours to marry together. Bottled at 20% ABV, the sweetly-spiced notes of our Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur make the perfect addition to a Gin Spritz with chilled Prosecco or with Ginger Ale in a long serve over ice. On the other hand, Edinburgh Gin's Raspberry Gin Liqueur is an intensely fruity liqueur, packed with the juiciest summer raspberries and our award-winning Edinburgh Gin Classic. This 20% ABV liqueur is delicious served simply over ice or added to soda water with a twist of lemon to enhance its summery sweetness.

    Speaking of fruity, the Apple & Spice liqueur is inspired by the classic cook’s flavour pairing of ripe orchard apples with rich cinnamon, this gin liqueur is brimming with tangy fruit. Select crisp apples are picked from the autumn harvest and macerated with cinnamon, before blending them with the award-winning Edinburgh Gin Classic. With a sumptuous sweetness and touch of spice, this is a lively liqueur bursting with juicy flavour. At 20% ABV liqueur’s bright fruit-filled flavour is delicious mixed with soda, perfect in short and Martini-style cocktails or served simply over ice.

    The Elderflower Liqueur and Pomegranate & Rose Liqueur complete the lineup. Edinburgh Gin’s Elderflower Liqueur is distilled using the best natural flavours, Elderflower has a distinctive floral aroma and flavour that marry beautifully with our Edinburgh Gin Classic. A highly aromatic liqueur with an exquisitely sweet, floral bouquet. Inspired by dusky evenings in the Orient, the Pomegranate & Rose Liqueur is light and fragrant, evocative of sugar-dusted Turkish Delight. Blending ruby-red pomegranate seeds and damask rose petals with our classic Edinburgh Gin, this sumptuous liqueur is softly floral, its gentle warmth tempered by lingering fruit flavours and a light citrus lift. 

    At 20% ABV Elderflower Liqueur brings a light, floral profile. It is a honeyed, flavourful libation that’s an ideal counterpoint to sharper flavours, and makes a refreshing Elderzest cocktail when paired with gin, lemonade and fresh mint. The Pomegranate & Rose Liqueur has candied, aromatic notes that are a perfect complement to dry sparkling wine such as Prosecco. It also makes a delicately sweet addition to the classic Martini and is equally delicious when served over ice. For a longer drink, this gin liqueur mixes beautifully with rose lemonade, garnished with a lemon twist.
