Edinburgh Gin has done it again. The Scottish distillery–one of our choice producers here at The Whisky World–announced two delicious additions to their dynamic portfolio of craft gins and liqueurs.
This August, you will be able to try two awesome new spirits: the Edinburgh Gin Orange and Mandarin Liqueur and the Edinburgh Lemon and Jasmine Gin.
Launched in 2010, the distillery has won hearts, minds, and awards for its embrace of Scotland’s equally rich heritage and contemporary creativity–and gin’s critical role in it (see: Edinburgh Gin 1670 Royal Botanical Garden, their coastal-foraged Seaside Gin, and outstanding Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur).
Remember: gin was born from the meeting of premiere botanicals, spices, and exotic imports with science and ingenuity. Edinburgh–the city and the distillery–is an ideal example.

Edinburgh Gin Orange and Mandarin Liqueur
Looking for a bright and zesty drink? The new Orange and Mandarin Liqueur packs a refreshing pop (you can thank the Edinburgh London Dry infusion for that) without the syrupy-sweetness of other orange liqueurs.
According to the distiller, the Orange and Mandarin Liqueur is “inspired by the evocative fragrance of sun-drenched orange groves in the Mediterranean.” Think floral orange blossom, pithy citrus, and a tease of tang.
We suggest you try it with tonic and an orange peel, or as an upgrade to your Sidecar, Margarita, or even your Daiquiri. And at 20% ABV, rest assured you can imbibe freely without muddying-up your cocktail (or judgement).
Edinburgh Lemon and Jasmine Gin
Continuing their pitch-perfect run of innovative flavoured gins, the Edinburgh Lemon and Jasmine GIn (40% ABV) is a distinctive nod to the spirit’s international legacy.
Imagine the pungent-sweet aroma of fresh jasmine with the tingly sensation of lemon juice. We couldn’t think of anything better to pair against Edinburgh’s confident botanical profile. Our mouths are watering, too.
Use it as the core of your French 75 or Vesper Martini; or sneak it into your lemonade for a balmy beverage–or perhaps your rhubarb and ginger for a sneaky-complex punch.
