Region: Scotland

When people talk about Scottish Gin, there’s two possibilities: one is that they’re snarking about how some of the gins born out of 18th and 19th-century London are now distilled in Scotland at the Cameron Bridge distillery.

And the other kind of Scottish Gin is the kind that was born in Scotland and captures the essence of Scotland. Caorunn uses locally foraged gin botanicals, Crossbill uses juniper from a 200 year old bush outside their distillery, and Eden Mill even makes a Golf Gin, so named for the nearby St. Andrew golf course. Scotland has much more to offer the gin world than simple being where Gordon’s Gin is made today.
