Fodor's Expert Review Edinburgh Gin Distillery

West End Winery/Brewery/Distillery Fodor's Choice
Whisky may be Scotland's most famous spirit, but gin also has a long and storied history here and as any visit to an Edinburgh bar will tell you, it's currently all the rage. Edinburgh Gin is a small distillery and visitor center just off Princes Street, offering tours and tastings that give a fascinating insight into craft gin production. You'll see two copper stills, Flora and Caledonia, which helped kick-start the now award-winning operation, and are still used to make some of their experimental, small-batch gins. (Note that the main range, including the navy-strength Cannonball Gin and the coastal botanical-infused Seaside Gin, are now produced at a larger facility in Leith). Take a discovery tour (£10) or, if you'd like a tasting too, a connoisseur tour (£25), then head into the Heads & Tales bar to sample some Scottish gin cocktails.
