Naturally colour changing gin
The distillery herb garden is home to over 600 varieties of flowers & herbs
The range of gin flavours are created by owner, Hamish, a keen herbologist
Elderflower is certainly one of the more asked for botanicals ingredients in the Kindred Spirits shop, and this product not only brings that in abundance, it does it in style with a gorgeous colour that naturally when tonic is added. While gin and elderflower have long been a classic combination, the addition of the Jasmine to this flavoured gin adds a more unique element which has been going down very well with customers.
From the Distiller
To match the noblest of plants – the elder tree and jasmine flower – we distilled them over our crisp dry base, carefully balancing the delicate aromas and flavours to create a sensual and intriguing drink that feels like the delicate kiss of a lover on the back of the neck on a summer’s day.
Less is definitely more with this gin – all that’s needed is plenty of ice, a good measure of gin and the most subtle tonic you can find to let the perfectly balanced flavours shine through.
The Old Curiosity Distillery
Hamish Martin is a wine merchant turned herbologist who bought a derelict plot of land in the Pentlands in 2012 with his wife, Liberty. They cultivated this land into a secret herb garden with over 600 naturally grown and tendered herbs, with a café and arts centre on site. In 2016, Hamish began experimenting with a still, his hand grown herbs and gin. By accident, he discovered the magic of nature – a colour changing gin! From that, the Old Curiosity Distillery was established in 2017, offering a core range of subtly flavoured gins as well as monthly special edition.
