Edinburgh Gin expands its core range.

Edinburgh Gin Expands Core Range With Seaside Inspired Addition

Seaside Gin has now joined Edinburgh Gin’s permanent portfolio. First launched in summer 2015, Seaside Gin started as a limited edition, and sold out with its first run of 2,500 bottles. Now the distiller has released 6,000 70cl bottles, with a RRP of £35. Seaside Gin is the result of a longstanding collaboration between Edinburgh Gin and Heriot Watt University’s MSc in Brewing & Distilling; a partnership that seeks to push boundaries. As part of the project, masters students were tasked with scouring the east coast in search of botanicals that would encapsulate a taste of the Scottish shoreline. Seaside Gin has been distilled with foraged seaweed, scurvy grass and ground ivy, and boasts, says the company, “ta sweet yet refreshing salinity.”  This means Edinburgh Gin now offer three brands in its permanent portfolio they are: Edinburgh Original (43% ABV) and Navy Strength Cannonball (57% ABV) and Seaside Gin (43% ABV)
Edinburgh Gin’s co-founder, Alex Nicol said, “The expansion of our core range is testament to customer appetite for distinctly different gins that blend art and science.  It’s a delight to see Seaside Gin added to our permanent roster and that there is demand for a gin that pioneers the use of unusual native botanicals such as this.” The newly-formed trio – Original, Cannonball and Seaside – are all presented in the brand’s new custom-made bottles, crafted in Milan by Bruni Glass.
