Distillery

Distillery & Visitor Centre, West End and The Biscuit Factory Distillery, Leith

The production of the Edinburgh Gin expressions is spread over two unique distillery sites in Edinburgh. Heads & Tales is both a bar and home two stills, Flora and Caledonia. Both stills are used to distil a variety of Edinburgh Gin expressions. Visitors to the Heads & Tales site can enjoy a tour of the distillery and learn more about the history of gin and its links to Edinburgh, plus enjoy some samples in the cosy tasting room or pick up a bottle of Edinburgh Gin from the gift shop. They also host gin school sessions where you can become a distiller for the day and craft your very own gin to take away. The second production site is housed in the Biscuit Factory, located a few miles away in Leith. The distillery in The Biscuit Factory houses a large 1000 litre traditional copper pot Hoga Still. The site also features a number of smaller stills, which are used for recipe creation and development before being upscaled at either The Biscuit Factory or Heads & Tales. Only the Heads & Tales site is open to the public with visits to The Biscuit Factory by invitation only.
