Unveiling the Enchantment of Edinburgh Gin: A Detailed Tasting Guide

Edinburgh Gin, crafted in the heart of Scotland's capital, is a brand synonymous with vibrant flavour and innovative botanical blends. Each expression boasts its own unique personality, offering a delightful exploration for gin enthusiasts. Here, we delve into the captivating world of Edinburgh Gin, providing a comprehensive tasting guide to help you savour every nuanced note.

The Art of the Approach

To fully appreciate the intricacies of Edinburgh Gin, it's important to create the ideal tasting environment. Opt for a clean, well-lit space free from strong odours. Use a copa glass, its wide bowl allowing the aromas to unfurl freely.  Pour a generous measure (around 50ml) and allow the gin to rest for a few minutes, allowing the temperature to rise and the botanicals to awaken.

Edinburgh Gin - The Classic Canvas

Edinburgh Gin, the brand's signature expression, forms the foundation upon which all their other gins are built. This juniper-led gin presents a beautifully balanced profile. On the nose, expect a wave of classic piney juniper, intertwined with refreshing citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon. Hints of peppery spice from coriander seeds and earthy angelica root peek through, adding complexity.

The first sip reveals a burst of juniper, followed by a wave of zesty citrus that dances on the tongue. Coriander adds a warming, peppery undercurrent, while angelica root provides a subtle earthiness. The finish is clean and crisp, with a lingering echo of juniper and citrus.

Serving Suggestions:

  • The Perfect G&T: Combine 50ml of Edinburgh Gin with 150ml of high-quality Indian tonic water and a generous wedge of fresh grapefruit. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary for a touch of herbal intrigue.
  • A Classic Martini: For a sophisticated twist, create a dry martini. Stir 50ml of Edinburgh Gin with 10ml of dry vermouth, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Exploring the Flavour Spectrum:

Edinburgh Gin offers a captivating range of expressions beyond the classic. Here's a glimpse into some of their most popular offerings:

  • Edinburgh Gin Elderflower:  This delicately floral gin is a summer delight. Expect an elegant nose filled with fragrant elderflower blossoms, alongside subtle citrus and juniper notes. The palate is light and floral, with hints of honey and a refreshing citrus finish.  Enjoy it in a simple gin and tonic with a sprig of elderflower or muddle some fresh cucumber for a spa-like experience.
