A true tribute to the city of Edinburgh, it is produced using ancestral Scottish methods. Distilled in small batches and created from a balanced blend of 13 plants from the region, it is the best example of a Scottish London Dry Gin.
Scotland is no exception to the phenomenon of micro-distilleries. The creation of Edinburgh Gin Distillery in 2010, in the heart of Edinburgh, the country's capital, easily proves this. Especially since in founding this craft distillery, Alex Nicol had only one idea in mind: to produce a very high quality gin that had the flavors… of Edinburgh. A locavore gin in a way. For this, he equipped himself with two copper stills: an elegant column called Caledonia and a beautiful pot still, named Flora. Two choice accomplices. It also works in collaboration with Heriott Watt University, Scotland's only distillation academy: the Edinburgh distillery thus benefits from a transfer of knowledge and expertise, which is essential for distillation. But to produce an exceptional gin, it is not only a question of small batch distillation. The choice of plants also has an essential role in the aromatic profile of the eau-de-vie. If the juniper berry is essential, the classic coriander seeds, lemon zest or even angelica and iris roots are also at the rendezvous of its recipe. But not only… Alex Nicol also bet on heather, pine and thistle, which is none other than the emblem of Scotland. Enough to give his Edinburgh Dry gin a very Scottish personality, marked by spices and a nice balance.
