Fringe Event: Gin Safari

Why not spend two hours in the afternoon swilling gin and tasting food flavoured and inspired by gin and  a gentle gin-tinted walk through Edinburgh’s glorious New Town streets? 

There are at least four gin distilleries in Edinburgh, so we have plenty of juniper-based spirits for sampling – we start with a welcome drink of  Edinburgh Gin liqueur and fizz -choose from a range of delicious locally made gin liqueurs: plum and vanilla, rhubarb and ginger, elderflower or  raspberry. Then  we tear ourselves away to next door for the ultimate gin marshmallow experience by The Marshmallow Lady herself, then we’ll wander slowly through the elegant Georgian streets hearing how gin made its impact on 18th and 19th century Edinburgh to Stockbridge for a Pickering’s gin cured salmon – what a way to go! – then a gin and tonic chocolate from Edinburgh’s top chocolatier and we’ll end up in one of Edinburgh’s coolest gin joint for a Highland-distilled gin and tonic full of flavours of heather and rowan.
