Biscuit Factory reborn as Edinburgh Gin Distillery

The former biscuit factory building in Leith is now home to Edinburgh Gin.

The new distillery has the capacity to make 2.5 million G&T’s a year! We’ll drink to that!

Edinburgh Gin has signed new distribution deals in Europe, Scandinavia and North America for their core range.

Seaside Gin (43% ABV) now joins Edinburgh Gin Original (43% ABV) and Navy Strength Cannonball (57% ABV) as part of the distiller’s core range.

Production is led by Head Distiller, David Wilkinson as part of the long-standing partnership with Heriot-Watt University’s MSc in Brewing & Distilling course.

Co-Founder of Edinburgh Gin, Alex Nicol said:

“Leith is steeped in history as an iconic gin port and was the center of a home grown spirits industry. It made perfect sense to carry on that tradition since Melrose Drover closed its doors in Edinburgh over 30 years ago, and ensure the legacy lives on.

Leith is undoubtedly experiencing its own kind of renaissance, as is gin. We have transformed part of the former United Biscuit’s factory into our second distillery, in response to the international spirit revival.

This expansion will more than quadruple our production capacity, with the new distillery producing enough spirit to make over 2.5million G&T’s per year. We also have the opportunity to expand further by adding another still.

It’s an exciting time for Edinburgh Gin, as we continue to craft the modern-day gin renaissance from Scotland’s capital. With the science and art of distilling at our core, we are energised that the spirit of Leith lives on at our new Biscuit Factory Distillery.”
