EDINBURGH Gin is taking centre stage in the capital again over the coming weeks with an expanded programme of events for this year’s Festival.
The Edinburgh Gin Garden has returned to St Andrew’s Square with what parent firm Spencerfield Spirit Company described as an “enhanced experience to offer festival-goers an indulgent escape from the bustle”; the Edinburgh Gin Garden free stage, managed by The Stand Comedy Club, will feature a range of music and entertainment.
The firm has also added a number of events to its Festival programme, including the Edinburgh Gin Fizz Terrace, which has seen the pavement on Rutland Place Terrace (outside the Edinburgh Gin Distillery) transformed into a terrace serving gin fizz cocktails and G&Ts; and Edinburgh Gin at East Princes Street Gardens, where the Edinburgh Gin team, in partnership with Contini’s restaurant and Ian Macleod Distillers, will run a gin bar throughout August.
Edinburgh Gin’s Original, Cannonball and Seaside variants will be available at all three events as well as its gin liqueurs.
Jane Nicol, co-founder of Edinburgh Gin, said the Festival activity is a good fit for the brand.
“Edinburgh is renowned as a centre of artistic excellence, and we are delighted to be taking part in the world’s largest arts festival as a craft distiller striving to bring the art of distilling to the fore,” she said.
