Leith Gin

Joie de Leith

The port of Leith has a spirited history of importing and producing gin, dating back to the 1700s. It was the gateway to one of Scotland's most important 18th century trading partners - the Netherlands - from where the Dutch East India Company imported luxury goods, including gin's precursor, genever.

After falling out of fashion during the 1900s, gin is surging back into hearts and minds right across the globe and Leith's 'big sister', Edinburgh, apparently consumes more gin per head of population than any other city in the world!

We've put Leith firmly back on the gin map with this deliciously well-made, London-Dry style gin - perfect for enjoying with your favourite tonic or as the base for a cocktail. The blend reflects the history of Leith, with botanicals coming from the four corners of the world.

Leith Gin is a no-nonsense experience – very much inspired by Leith and its folk - enjoy the 'Joie de Leith'!
