About Edinburgh Gin
Edinburgh Gin was launched in 2010 with a mission to produce modern, characterful gin. Edinburgh and the nearby port of Leith both have a long history of making as well as trading gin and its Dutch sibling, jenever. In the late 18th century, there were nearly 400 illicit stills and distilleries producing the spirit as the gin craze swept across the city.
Since launching Edinburgh Gin, the company has released new bottlings: Seaside Gin, which uses coastal botanicals for a maritime note; navy-strength Cannonball Gin; and a range of much-praised fruit liqueurs.
