Edinburgh Gin creates frankincense and myrrh editionBy Becky Paskin
Spencerfield Spirit has introduced a festive new limited edition to its range of Edinburgh Gins, with frankincense, myrrh and nutmeg as botanicals.
Produced at the Edinburgh Gin Distillery beneath the city’s Rutland Hotel in partnership with Heriot-Watt University School of Distilling, the new expression will be available in extremely limited quantities.
A donation from the proceeds raised by the Christmas Gin will be given to St Columba’s Hospice.
Alex Nicol, managing director of Spencerfield Spirit, 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.“
Just 200 cases have been produced, with each 700ml bottle carrying an RRP of £30.
