Scotland's love affair with gin started in Leith, Edinburgh. It all began way back in the 1700s when the first bottles of fiery Dutch Jenever were traded into the Port of Leith.
Scottish gin accounts for 70% of the UK's overall gin production. Gin is made from juniper berries, but juniper is not a berry! It's actually a seed. Nearly all of the juniper used in gin-making is picked straight from the wild and we love to stock small batch, local suppliers who use our local botanicals to create some fantastic flavours and amazing gins, most of which you will not find in any supermarket.
