Holyrood is the first whisky distillery in the city of Edinburgh for almost 100 years, following the closure of Edinburgh (which was also known as Glen Sciennes or Newington) distillery in 1925. Holyrood was established within a 180-year-old-building that was formerly the goods shed for St Leonard’s railway station.
Holyrood Height of Arrows Gin
Height of Arrows, is a gin that is distilled from Holyrood’s DNA as a whisky maker. Whisky making works with simplicity. Barley, water and yeast. This same mind set has been applied to Height of Arrows and hence a complex gin has been born of simplicity, one botanical, juniper enhance with two modifiers, salt and beeswax. The modifiers add layer, mouthfeel and texture; flavour profiles more commonly associated with whisky. Height of Arrows is a gin that allows gin fans to explore a new direction in modern gin making; one that elevates today’s gin drinking experience.
