Lockerbie distillery and Edinburgh hotel team up to create exclusive new gin

The OroGin Distillery Company has teamed up with the George Hotel in Edinburgh to launch an exclusive new gin.

Published: November 26, 2019

Named Number Nineteen, the new gin is the brainchild of experts from the Scottish distiller and the team at the hotel, and has launched to coincide with the hotel's refurbishment and re-brand as the InterContinental Edinburgh – The George.

Bottles of Number Nineteen are available for exclusive purchase from the hotel, while customers looking to try before they buy can find the gin in the Printing Press Bar & Kitchen. It'll also be in the mini bar of each of the hotel rooms.

The brand's label has been designed to reflect the hotel's Georgian heritage, with an original map of Edinburgh’s George Street and a border that’s reminiscent of a Georgian door number.

It is the second gin to be launched by the hotel, following on from No. 25 in 2017.

Number Nineteen is made with a blend of 15 botanicals from around the globe including: Macedonian juniper, Italian and Moroccan coriander, cinnamon from Sri Lanka, citrus from Spain and a rare green cardamom from Guatemala.

Ray Clynick, MD and head distiller for The OroGin Distilling Co, said: “We’re really excited to launch the new Number Nineteen gin brand.

"The bottle looks fantastic with the design mirroring the elegance, quiet opulence and timelessness of The George.”
