  • Had a fabulous day at the gin making experience. Was great learning the history of Gin & seeing it created before my eyes. Best bit was of course trying the excellent selection of Edinburgh gins & proudly leaving with my own creation (which I add is tasty)
  • Only visited the shop as we were only on a day trip to Edinburgh. Lovely quirky cellar shop, but be warned it is very small and will only fit 3 or 4 people comfortably. Absolutely love the gin. Will be returning for the tour.
  • We had the £25 tour. Absolutely brilliant and worth every penny, never expected all the tasters we got. Had such a laugh and also really interesting. Kaitlin our tour guide was brilliant too. Would highly recommend and will be back.
  • Compared to other tours this felt like a tourist trap which charged as much as whiskey tours without the detailed tasting. I enjoyed learning the history of Gin and whilst there was a tasting session it would be nice to learn what to look for or avoid when tasting good vs bad gin. On the whole it was a fun hour out though.
  • We enjoyed the basic tour, lots of history about gin and Edinburgh which I loved and our tour guide Caitlin was lovely, funny and clearly passionate about gin. The venue is surprisingly welcoming, given it's in a basement and our gin and tonic at the end of the tour was divine! Even in winter, I had to book two days in advance to find an open spot, so recommend booking in advance if you can!

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
