All expressions in the Height of Arrows Gin range are stripped back to the core, featuring juniper, beeswax and salt, lending layers of texture and full bodied flavour to the gin. Roasting spices has long been known to add more complex flavours in cooking. This Heavy recipe includes roasted juniper, extracting more flavour to build a robust juniper heavy expression of Height of Arrows. Heavy has been sweetened with a little sugar post distillation to achieve an Old Tom style of gin that is powerful yet beautifully balanced. On the nose, white blossom, citrus and vanilla aromas. On the palate, more vanilla with a prickly of spicy juniper. On the finish, a final hint of spice with herbaceous juniper lingering.
Holyrood Distillery is the product of Canadians Rob and Kelly Carpenter and Scot David Robertson, who collectively share a love for Edinburgh, Scotch Whisky and interesting challenges. Holyrood Distillery has been thoughtfully renovated and is situated next to Holyrood Park, in the heart of Edinburgh’s distilling history. With the opportunity to bring single malt distilling back to the centre of Edinburgh after almost 100 years, Holyrood Distillery does so with flavour at the forefront. Unconstrained by heritage, category and tradition, they aim to be a distinctively different spirits company. Their focus is on experimentation alongside a commitment to produce high-quality, full-flavoured spirits for anyone with an open mind and an open mouth.
Old Tom Gin
Old Tom Gin is a style of gin that’s had a resurgence in recent years. Old Tom Gins can be described as being similar to London Dry Gins expect sweeter. Normally, sugars, honey or sweet syrups are added in the distillation or post-distillation to create a sweet style gin that retains botanical flavours but is underpinned with sweet notes on the palate.
Holyrood Distillery sits under the watchful eye of Arthur’s Seats, the main peak that forms the Holyrood hills that dominates Edinburgh’s skyline. Lovingly and sympathetically restored, the former Engine Shed building, now Holyrood Distillery, dates back to 1835. With visitor experiences tailored around both gin and whisky, visitors can expect a rich, visual and sensory experience.
