Spencerfield Spirit has released a new gin made with festive spices at its new distillery at Heads & Tales bar in Edinburgh.

The limited-edition Christmas Gin is infused with frankincense, myrrh and nutmeg, with a base of Edinburgh Gin which is made with Scottish botanicals such as heather and milk thistle.

The new gin was developed at the Edinburgh Gin distillery in partnership with Heriot-Watt University School of Distilling.

Alex Nicol, managing director of Spencerfield Spirit which owns Edinburgh Gin, said: “This is a bold move for us but we think it perfectly represents our innovative distilling and unique ideas for flavouring.

“We use award-winning original Edinburgh Gin and infuse it with the tastes of frankincense, myrrh and nutmeg which really bring the Christmas spirit to life.

“As it is the season of good will, we will also be making a donation to St Columba’s Hospice using the proceeds raised by our Christmas Gin. This is a fantastic cause and we always like to give something back where possible.”

There have only been 200 six-bottle cases produced. The recommended retail price for the 70cl bottle at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, Vino and Royal Mile Whiskies is £30.

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