2024 Is Coming…

Doors to manual and cross check… something exciting has just landed! Edinburgh Gin will soon be airside in Edinburgh Airport!

For the very first time, shoppers in Edinburgh Airport will soon be able to interact with our wonder-filled brand in an exquisite, brand new retail outlet experience directly in the airport. We are delighted to have entered into a new phase of partnership with Avolta (formally known as Dufry), as we formally launch our unique Edinburgh Gin ‘Shop in Shop’ retail outlet within the newly refurbished World Duty Free store in Edinburgh Airport. This is a super exciting development for our Edinburgh Gin brand in this key strategic retail outlet. We are therefore now looking for some exceptional talent to join us as we embark upon these exciting times.

If you or someone you know is a professional, well-seasoned and highly experienced retail expert, ideally combined with having a genuine passion for our Edinburgh Gin brand, alongside having oodles of individual charisma, passion and energy, and who engages naturally at their best with consumers on a face to face basis then, quite simply and in our own opinion(!), we have a fantastic new career opportunity waiting for you!

Successful candidates will join a very small team of like-minded individuals who together will be the formative force working on this special partnership and contributing to the overall success of our new Edinburgh Gin retail experience in the airport.
