We know you’re in Scotland, but forget about whisky for a second – there’s another spirit that has been perfected here. By 1777, Edinburgh was already home to eight gin distilleries, and today this proud tradition continues. With a local gin-loving host who knows all about Edinburgh gin’s past as well as its present, you’ll get an interactive lesson in the history and production of gin that you might not remember in the morning. Walk down the city center’s cobbled lanes between local and independent gin distilleries and bars, and learn about the different styles of gins and the botanicals that flavor them. Sample gins from Edinburgh and beyond while your local host shares stories about the surprising dark side of Scotland’s gin history...
In the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland’s perfectly preserved piece of history and the so-called “Gateway to Scotch whisky”, you’ll sample a liquor that’s a little less obvious. We’re still deep in the recent craft gin revolution, but Edinburgh has been a gin aficionado for over three centuries! You’ll follow your local host, a self-proclaimed gin savant, down central Edinburgh’s razor-thin cobblestone alleys through the fairytale-esque Old Town, seeing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks along the way. Explore the length of the Royal Mile, a historic hub of drinking, dining, and entertainment. From here, within a one-mile radius, you’ll find Edinburgh’s “gin triangle” – the area where some of the city’s most popular gin distilleries congregate.
