Bar web21

Heads & Tales is Edinburgh Gin’s new home in Edinburgh. The new city centre bar, visitor centre and distillery based below The Rutland Hotel in Edinburgh’s west end, houses two custom-made stills, Flora and Caledonia, allowing customers to enjoy an Edinburgh Gin while watching it being produced. It has a capacity of 70 and the bar will also serve a menu of locally sourced foods including Scottish charcuterie, cheese and fish served with freshly prepared breads.

Commenting on the launch, Alex Nicol, managing director at Spencerfield Spirit, said, “Edinburgh has a special relationship with gin stretching back centuries. To this day, more gin is drunk here per head of the population than in any other UK city. With our new visitor centre and distillery coupled with the Heads & Tales gin emporium, Edinburgh’s great tradition for distilling looks set to be revived”.

Heads & Tales will be run by bar manager and drinks consultant Bruce Hamilton, who has over 13 years experience in the licensed hospitality trade. Alongside the extensive gin list, customers will also be able to enjoy carefully selected beers, wines and spirits as well as a cocktail list full of unique and original creations.
