The Edinburgh Gin Distillery

Located in the beating heart of Scotland’s capital, the Edinburgh Gin Distillery is a destination quite unlike any other. It’s here that we produce small batches of gin, inspired by the majesty, marvel and mischief of Edinburgh and its inhabitants.

Pull up a pew at our bar, to enjoy a gin produced metres from your glass. And for those seeking even more adventure? Well there’s even the opportunity to distill your own…


How do we make Gin?

How do you make gin, we hear you ask? The answer is quite simple really: Our master distiller, distills the finest Scottish grain spirit, together with a myriad of juniper, citrus peel, orris root and angelica.

Inspired by the Scottish capital and beyond, we go one step further and add a whirl of soft Scottish botanicals including milk thistle and heather. The result? A taste of Edinburgh.
