Many associate the Scottish capital with Scotch Whisky. But did you know, our beautiful city is also well known for producing Edinburgh Gin? Fear not, whisky lovers. The Scotch Whisky Experience is still only a short distance away from us at Parliament House Hotel. But for those interested in the botanicals, find out more about Edinburgh gin in our latest blog and get some gin tasting planned into your trip.
Gin Tasting and Tours in Edinburgh
If you’re a fan of gin, then your first stop should be to the Edinburgh Gin Distillery and Visitor Centre, located in Edinburgh’s West End. Head on over to this Gin haven for your very own tour around the distillery and get your very own insight into how the famous gin is made. At the end of your tour, participants over the age of 18 will also be able to take part in some gin tasting!
Prices for the Edinburgh Gin Distillery tour are inexpensive, with prices beginning from £10 per person. It’s the perfect activity for a budget Edinburgh city break.
If you’ve already had the pleasure of experiencing the Edinburgh Gin Distillery tour, then your next port of call should be Pickering’s Gin Distillery in Summerhall. Built upon the old grounds of an animal hospital, the Pickering’s Summerhall distillery also neighbours a pub called The Royal Dick, taking its namesake from the hospital, Dick Vet.
You can sample a range of gins in the pub. Or, take a tour of the small distillery for £10, which includes a complimentary gin and tonic.
