The naturally coloured and flavoured pink gin is described as rich, sweet and fruity, whilst retaining the classic notes on a distilled gin and a strong juniper backbone. The fruitiness is delivered by using fresh Perthshire raspberries. The pink colouration is provided in the final maceration of hibiscus and rose petals.
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.
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.
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.
