This special edition gin has been created in partnership between Edinburgh Gin and the world renowned Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE). The gin takes its name from the year the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh was founded and uses a variety of rare and exotic botanicals grown and handpicked in the city’s most famous garden. This partnership saw Edinburgh Gin’s Head Distiller, David Wilkinson, working closely with Botanist, Dr Greg Kenicer, over more than 12 months to carefully craft this tailor made gin which includes fennel, sweet cicely, the exotic Piper Leaf and Tasmanian Mountain Pepper.

London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.
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. 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.
