Had an excellent tasting experience with Emily! She was knowledgeable and passionate. The Gins are all excellent and we especially enjoyed the gin liqueurs. Went back to Heads and Tales for the pub...

Best gin I have had. We did a Gin tasting at a restaurant near by and found out about this distillery. They have both spirits and liqueurs. The gin flavor combinations were amazing! We loved all the flavors for mixing with tonics and waters. We bought as much as we could fit in our suitcase. We love the shops friendly staff and fun atmosphere. We are so sad we can’t get this gin back in the states, fingers crossed we can one day. I ended up getting the Elderflower gin liqueur duty free b/c I wanted it so bad. Decent pricing as well. We also loved the raspberry liquor. You should get some of this gin it will change your G+T game for ever.
I am a big lover of gin! And this is exactly the place where gin lovers need to go. The distillery has been hidden in the lovely historic basement. The staff were very welcoming and lovely. We came and had a glass of classic gin like a warm up starter. The guide introduced us the bit of gin history and the process of making the gin. He was so funny and really enjoyed every word of the story. We moved to the another room, where we had 4 gins to try. It was absolutely delicious! In the end you will get 10% off shopping the gin and the drinks at the bar. And also emailed 10% off from online Edinburgh gin store, brilliant isn’t it? The tour was 60mins and the toilets available!
The gin & chocolate pairing experience was amazing! The whole experience was brilliant! Loved the host, Natasha, the history, fun facts and of course the gin! My sister and I just moved the Edinburgh and wanted to try this gin properly - it did not disappoint. I was surprised at how many styles and flavours they had as well, there’s really something for everyone! It was really interesting to learn about the pairings and why they worked so well. It was also quite nice to have a smaller group size - there were 6 of us total which is just perfect! The location was so beautiful and we got to see the whole place including a change of location for the end of the tasting - the booths were super cool! Learning about the history of gin/EG and what the future holds for them was great, cannot wait to check out the new location in a few years time 🙌🍸💯
We had such a great time at our gin tasting experience! Natasha, our host was simply the best - kind, funny and very knowledgeable. We went over their gorgeous store at Hanover street and bought some gin to bring back home. It was definitely a highlight and we highly recommend doing this during your Edinburgh trip!
We had the best time at our tasting and tour! Our guide, Chloe, was wonderful and made it so fun. We loved seeing the stills and learning how the gin is made, and everything we tried was delicious. Would highly recommend! It was well worth the money.
