We are Edinburgh Gin…

Firmly at the forefront of the gin renaissance, we have a multi award-winning premium gin and our visitor experience is rated on Trip Advisor as one of Scotland’s top-rated tourist attractions!

We’re looking for charismatic individuals with outgoing and bubbly personalities who have a real passion for both our product and providing only the best and engaging experiences for our visitors, customers and consumers.
