Height of Arrows is a gin that has been created with whisky in mind. Drawing on the idea that whisky’s myriad of flavours rely on a handful of ingredients, Height of Arrows is stripped back to the core, featuring juniper, beeswax and salt, lending layers of texture and full bodied flavour to the gin. On the nose, a balance of clean fresh pine and resin coupled with light citrus. On the palate, oily mouth coating with juicy and rich orange zest and lemon then a bold emergence of black pepper and cardamom, tempered with tapered herbaceous smoothness. On the finish, long, smooth and dry finish with effervescent spicy notes.
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.
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.
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.
