Electric Spirit Co.

Leith, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Established in 2017 by product designer, photographer and distiller James Porteous, Achroous Gin is the flagship release from Electric Spirit Co. Completing a Masters Degree in distillation at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University, famous amongst the distillation world for its courses and facilities, James set to work setting up the Electric Spirit Co. and started work on his signature spirit – Achroous Gin. James is eager that the spirits he produces combine both craft and flavour.

Working from his distillery facility in Leith, James has created a number of limited edition spirits for special events in the city including Gin #00 Festival Gin, which was made for the North Hop Festival and Gorse spirit which was sold at Edinburgh’s Timberyard Restaurant.
