Inspired by the ladies-in-waiting to Mary Queen of Scots, who was born at Linlithgow Palace. The second in the series features Mary Livingstone known as the ‘bonny one’ who was known as a highly skilled horsewomen and hunter with an in-depth knowledge of the local landscape including plants. Distilled with locally foraged Scottish brambles and raspberry leaves to create a fresh, fruit flavour profile that works well with tonic or Prosecco.
The team at Linlithgow Distillery, Ross and Alyson Jamieson, had one simple aim with their distillery – make a quality Gin using the best sourced and locally foraged botanicals from the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow to make a truly special local Gin. As a family business and understanding the importance to the area of having its own special gin, Linlithgow Distillery recruited over 100 people from the local area to help develop what would become their signature Scottish Gin.
Flavoured Gins vary in flavour and colour. Often the gin will be infused with a flavour post-distillation through maceration or even the addition and blending of individual distillates or essences. Sometimes the gin will be created in one distillation. These styles of gin often have a key flavour which tends to lead the flavour profile, such as fresh berry fruit, citrus or any number of possible key botanicals and flavours. Although this gin style should still include juniper, it is often not the leading botanical.
All gins in the Linlithgow range are distilled in the family-run Linlithgow Distillery, in the heart of the town. With premises secured in 2017, the couple set to work renovating their new distillery space before taking delivery of their new gin still, affectionately named ‘Gleann Iucha’ which is Scots Gaelic for Linlithgow. In 2019, they installed a second larger still to keep up with demand and increase production capacity.
