Inspired by the ladies-in-waiting to Mary Queen of Scots, who was born at Linlithgow Palace. The first in the series features Mary Fleming known as the ‘lively one’ who was known for her flair and character as an entertainer to the Court through music and dance. Combining Kaffir lime, Yuzu, Star Anise along with some traditional gin botanicals, this gin has a true zesty flavour profile and is described as ‘an old fashioned sherbet fountain from your childhood’. The flavour profile and mouthfeel have been created through the distillation process and botanicals with no additives or additional flavourings.
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.
