Spencerfield Spirit has announced that its Edinburgh Gin limited edition Christmas Gin is back on the shelves this year in a new, custom-made bottle.
First released last year, this gin is infused with the traditional festive spices of frankincense, myrrh and nutmeg. The new bottle has been crafted by Bruni glass and features an opulent art deco label combining the colours of Christmas. And to make handling and pouring easier for bartenders throughout the busy festive rush, the bottle has been made more slimline.
As a gesture of goodwill Edinburgh Gin will be donating £1 of every bottle of Christmas Gin sold in the UK to the Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust work to empower local communities to end hunger and poverty through the use of food banks. The money will be earmarked for use in Scotland.
Alex Nicol, managing director of Spencerfield Spirit, which owns Edinburgh Gin, said: “We are so pleased to be bringing our Christmas Gin back for a second year and to be supporting the Trussell Trust which does amazing work in Edinburgh and throughout the UK.
“Christmas Gin was extremely successful for us last year so we are looking forward to seeing what this year brings.
“The new design of the bottle and the inimitable label makes the gin stand out from the crowd and it perfectly represents the Christmas season.”
Edinburgh Gin’s Christmas Gin was developed at the Edinburgh Gin distillery in partnership with Heriot-Watt University School of Distilling. It will be available from the Edinburgh Gin Distillery, Vino and Royal Mile Whiskies.
Edinburgh Gin’s new distillery is located 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.
