Bardowie Gin

Made by the Hazell family on the shores of Bardowie Loch. Out of an initial list of 13 ingredients, four that were grown or gathered where the Hazells lived were chosen to contribute to the flavour of Bardowie Gin.

Blackcurrant bushes that were already established when Mark and Alison moved to The Jaw provide the first botanical and the fruit flavour it provides is enhanced by the freshness of bulrush stems which smell like freshly mown lawn. This gives way to a nuttiness from ground elder which, although it is known as a pernicious weed today, was originally brought over by the Romans as a salad leaf – a function which it can still perform as well as rocket or spinach when young. The final ingredient that made it into Bardowie Gin was Bay – from a rather large Bay Tree that flourishes outside Mark and Alison’s kitchen window; this gives a pleasant herby aftertaste to their gin.

The botanicals consist of orange peel, juniper, coriander and angelica root to which are added the unique locally picked botanicals of blackcurrant, bay, bulrush stem and ground elder. The makers say 'The gin is a predominantly citrusy spirit with fresh, grassy and nutty undertones and a distinctive light, and florally refreshing experience which is ‘dangerously drinkable’.' They recommend their gin to be married with equal part fresh water and a torn bay leaf in a large glass full of ice. Alternatively, couple with a Walter Gregor tonic and dehydrated clementine for a longer drink.

Edinburgh Gin 1670

The distillery says "Bringing together the natural connection between botany and gin distilling, Edinburgh Gin 1670 is the result of an innovative partnership with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RGBE). This gin draws inspiration from the unearthing of the ‘1670 Physic Garden’, originally created as a source of botanicals for use in medicinal remedies by two pioneering Edinburgh doctors, Robert Sibbald and Andrew Balfour. The result is a contemporary gin that is rooted in a fascinating chapter of Edinburgh’s history. This natural partnership saw our Head Distiller and RGBE’s Head Botanist work for over 12 months to experiment with and refine the recipe. Many of the botanicals in this unique gin would have been found in the original Physic Garden. This includes fennel (seeds and leaves) and sweet cicely, alongside exotic plants such as Piper Leaf, Tasmannia Lanceolata leaf and Tasmanian Mountain Pepper, all freshly picked from RBGE. Bottled at 43% ABV, this distinctive gin can be enjoyed in a classic G&T, served with premium Indian Tonic Water and garnished with a fresh basil leaf. Its crisp notes also complement classic cocktails such as the RBGE Martini, mixed with lemon bitters and garnished with fennel fronds."

Edinburgh Seaside Gin

The Distillery say 'Originally made with foraged shoreline botanicals, Seaside Gin was the first of our collaborations in partnership with Heriot-Watt University’s Brewing and Distilling MSc course.

These are complemented with aromatic spice notes from grains of paradise, coriander and cardamom. Bottled at 43% ABV, Seaside Gin makes for a bracingly refreshing G&T, and perfectly garnished with a sprig of green samphire in summertime. Alternatively, try a Seaside Martini with olive and anchovy garnish to create a pleasingly briny drink.
