Electric Spirit Co. is founded on a passion for spirits, the bar industry, and a love of design, established in 2017 by product designer, photographer and distiller James Porteous, who has been making gin in Leith since 2015. Completing a Masters Degree in distillation at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University, James set up the Electric Spirit Co. and started work on his signature spirit, aiming to combine both craft and flavour in small batch bespoke spirits. The bottles and spirits are vibrant, modern and instantly recognisable. Achroous, the flagship signature gin, actually means ‘colourless’ in Ancient Greek, but James has made up for that with the luminous fluorescent red bottle - hard to miss!
