First released last year, the exclusive gin is infused with the traditional festive spices of frankincense, myrrh and nutmeg. The new bottle has been crafted with Bruni glass and features an opulent art deco label combining the colours of Christmas. Making life easier for bartenders throughout the busy festive rush, the bottle has been designed to be more slimline making it easier to hold and pour.
As a gesture of goodwill Edinburgh Gin will be donating £1 of every bottle of Christmas Gin sold in the UK to the Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust work to empower local communities to end hunger and poverty through the use of food banks. The money will be earmarked for use in Scotland.
Alex Nicol, managing director of Spencerfield Spirit who own Edinburgh Gin, said: “We are so pleased to be bringing our Christmas Gin back for a second year and to be supporting the Trussell Trust which does amazing work in Edinburgh and throughout the UK.
“Christmas Gin was extremely successful for us last year so we are looking forward to seeing what this year brings.
“The new design of the bottle and the inimitable label makes the gin stand out from the crowd and it perfectly represents the Christmas season. No festive dinner table would be complete without a bottle of Christmas Gin!”
Edinburgh Gin’s Christmas Gin is the only spirit of its kind and has been developed at the Edinburgh Gin distillery in partnership with Heriot-Watt University School of Distilling. The exclusive new flavour makes for an ideal gift, or indeed, the perfect beverage to enjoy the festive season with.
The new gin will be available from the Edinburgh Gin Distillery, Vino and Royal Mile Whiskies.
