Inchcolm Distillery Pochle Geal 50cl

44.5% abv

Vol- 50cl

Pochle Geal (white) is the company’s first release. It is a zero-waste initiative in collaboration with the next generation of distilling talent at Heriot Watt University that makes use of the UK’s most wasted fruit. The surplus apples used to make the spirit all come from within a 30-mile radius of central Edinburgh.
The distillers reached out into the community and collected the apples from private trees, farms, walled gardens, community orchards and some commercial orchards. These are then taken to a warehouse where they are washed (literally in a bath) sorted and pressed using two hydro presses. The resultant juice then undergoes an extremely long (15-day) fermentation into a cider which is distilled into our spirit. All cut in and out points from the still are made by nose and taste rather than hydrometers or any automated machinery and the spirit has not been filtered or had anything added to it. It is made from apples, yeast, and water.

This ‘eau de vie’ is rested for 30 days before being bottled as a white spirit that has been painstakingly created to go very well with tonic and a slice of orange.

The next product will be a ‘rested’ version and is currently aging in 1st fill bourbon casks, bespoke Pedro Jimenez ¼ casks and a small virgin American oak firkin.

Sweet green apple with a background of orange marmalade and subtle hints of cardamon.

Light and nutty

Floral and spicy.

The name comes from the old Scots word pochle, meaning to take a small amount of something that doesn’t necessarily belong to you.

Not only a great drink but good for the planet – now that’s refreshing.

Inchcolm Distillery is a Malt Whisky Distillery located in a New Iconic Waterfronf location in Edinburgh.
A long time ago, two young bar men had a dream. Born out of a deep running passion for whisky, now backed up by a lifetime of selling it, we are fully committed to having our say in how the future of Scotch malt whisky is shaped, creating a genuine and authentic product that matches modern consumer values and lifestyles.

We are both local people, well-travelled and with our background in hospitality have an affinity for placemaking and realise the responsibility on our generation to help provide new solutions to tackle current social and environmental issues. Our national spirit is part of the fabric and narrative of Scotland and as such is a fantastic platform to demonstrate how this narrative continues.

In becoming part of the regeneration of Granton, we have an outstanding opportunity and organic environment to offer a modern interpretation of deep-rooted connections that distilleries form with their local communities and show the world what a modern Scotland and a modern Scotch whisky is all about.
