They also give a nod to the Scottish Art Deco movement during gin’s glory days in the 1920’s by way of the bottle label and design.
Seaside Gin 5cl - Edinburgh Gin
While working for the latter, Alex discovered a gin recipe in Leith. It had always been his plan to create a gin made to the recipe, and in 2010 Edinburgh Gin was launched. Inspired by its city’s gin-making heritage, Edinburgh Gin has been a huge player in the Scottish capital’s own gin renaissance.
Spencerfield Spirit Co. was founded by Alex and Jane Nicol in 2005. The husband and wife team initially focussed on whisky, using Alex’s knowledge of the market from his time at Beefeater and Glenmorangie to build the brand. With its signature botanicals listed as orange peel, mulberries, pine buds, lavender and lemongrass, the tasting notes aren’t too surprising – but sometimes surprises aren’t always best! There’s a big juniper hit up front on the nose, with citrus not far behind. With the gin originally created at Langley Distillery, they launched their own distillery and visitor centre in 2014. (As a side note, it’s a great distillery to visit, with a range of tour options. There are two custom bottles proudly on display at From the Gin Shelf HQ from our own ‘Gin Making Tour’. Highly recommended!)
Edinburgh Gin The Home of Edinburgh Gin
It’s well known it takes at least three years to create a legal Scotch whisky. But this Scottish spirit takes just three days! On the first day the still is filled with grain neutral spirit. As with most Scottish gins, and indeed those from throughout the UK, Edinburgh Gin buy this in.
Looking for a gin with a hint of the seaside? Then Edinburgh Seaside gin is probably the one for you! Edinburgh Gin have two distilleries – the original west end location, which is also their visitor centre, and the Biscuit Factory in Leith, Edinburgh’s spiritual home of gin.
