Amongst its trees, shrubs and herbs, something particularly wonderful lies within Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Edinburgh 1670 Gin has emerged from a treasure trove of over 14,000 plants that are grown in The Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. Our head distiller and their chief botanist have worked together to produce something extraordinary. Within each bottle, the likes of sweet cicely, piper leaf and Tasmannia lanceolata combine – an original botanical blend. Balanced yet enticingly unusual, 1670 moves between sweetness and menthol, lively and herbaceous. Expect a tingly finish. This special selection of plants, once sown in the gardens by medical innovators, now a source of biodiversity and conversation, can be tasted within every sip. A historical wonder that’s thoroughly modern.

Exotic ingredients are abundant within the gardens, such as lanceolata leaf – originally from Tasmania. Expect menthol-like spice and a tingly sensation, grounded by peppery dark berry notes. Fennel brings fresh aniseed, whilst piper leaf finishes 1670 with peppery, tropical flavour. You’ll taste this combination in no other gin. It’s a true original.
