When built, The Port of Leith Distillery will be an industry hub for education, innovation and openness. We plan to get busy in the meantime.
We're now working in a unit on the other side of Leith, which we're calling The Tower Street Stillhouse. From the Stillhouse, we will produce a new gin that celebrates the remarkable heritage of Leith as a centre of distillation and Scotland’s gateway to the world.
From the very beginning, we've wanted to collaborate with producers we admire and we’re excited to be sharing the Stillhouse with another fantastic local producer. The Electric Spirit Co has been making gin in Leith since 2015 and moving into the Stillhouse will see their production grow significantly, allowing founder James to meet the pent-up demand for his Achroous Gin.
The Stillhouse will also house our research programme, currently being developed with Heriot Watt University’s world leading International Centre for Brewing and Distilling. We are forging a long term partnership with Heriot Watt, which will see future students and graduates coming to learn and work with us.
In short, the Tower Street Stillhouse should be a pretty exciting place to be for the next couple of years.
