Electric Spirit Co.

Leith, City of Edinburgh, 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, made for Edinburgh’s Timberyard Restaurant.

TOWER STREET STILLHOUSE

Sitting just a few yards from the Port of Leith basin and hidden away amongst some inconspicuous industrial units, you’ll find the Tower Street Stillhouse, the current shared home of Electric Spirit Co. and the Port of Leith Distillery. It’s fair to say it’s the only distillery in the UK to feature a shed as an office! The shared distillery space has proven to be a space for collaboration, innovation and experimentation for distiller James Porteous with regular visitors from the on-trade wishing to learn more about Electric Spirit Co. and their spirits.
