Linlithgow Distillery use a mix of local handpicked botanicals from around the loch, canal and meadows of Linlithgow. In particular, the meadowsweet that grows in abundance along the Union canal, combined with traditional botanicals including juniper, coriander and cassia among others, gives their London Dry style of gin a unique flavour with spicy and citrus notes.
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.
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.
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.
