New distillery for Edinburgh Gin

The gin market is in full development, as evidenced by Edinburgh Gin’s announcement that it will build a new multi-million pound distillery.

The development includes the acquisition of spacious premises in East Market Street, in the city’s “Old Town”. This proposed new distillery will enable Edinburgh Gin to welcome over 100,000 visitors each year.

“This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the evolution of Edinburgh Gin,” said Neil Mowat, UK marketing director of Ian Macleod Distillers.

“Working with local businesses including Staran Architects and Contagious, we are confident this will be a stunning distillery that offers a gin experience quite unlike any other.”

Edinburgh Gin was launched in 2000 and was acquired by Ian Macleod Distillers in 2016, with its second distillery opening shortly afterwards, at the Biscuit Factory in Leith in 2016.
