The Art & Science of Gin

Throughout this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, we’re inviting you to step inside the world of gin like never before, exploring the illustrious history and modern resurgence of the spirit in a whole new way.

You’ll embark upon a gin journey spanning three centuries; from the historical beginnings of Edinburgh’s gin craze in the 1700s—including the invention of the iconic column stills and the city’s first legal distillery—to the global search for botanicals and the modern-day distillation process.

Using projection mapping technology, this one-of-a-kind show will immerse you in the art and science of gin making, exciting your senses with the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the gin-making process.

Ticket price includes:

  • G&T on arrival
  • Tasting session
  • Signature serve
