There have only been 200 cases of the gin made which includes six bottles per case, giving it a sense of exclusivity. The new flavour will be available from the Edinburgh Gin Distillery, Vino and Royal Mile Whiskies, RRP £35.00 for a 70cl bottle.

Edinburgh Gin’s new distillery is located beneath the Rutland Hotel at Edinburgh’s west end. Handcrafted in small batches with the finest Scottish juniper berries, pine, heather and nine other carefully selected botanicals, the unique and distinctive gins are bottled in Edinburgh at 43% ABV.
