New Gin Adds Spice To The The Season

2nd September 2013

Multi award-winning Edinburgh Gin has unveiled a new variety to mark the changing of the seasons.

As summer turns to autumn, Spiced Orange takes the crystal clear flavour of Edinburgh Gin and then infuses it with fresh, red, sweet oranges from Valencia. The result is a warming gin with hints of cinnamon and spice and a honeyed raisin finish. 

Spiced Orange is delicious on its own, as a long drink with soda or, for a special occasion, with cava or Champagne. 

As the festive season draws nearer, a splash of Spiced Orange in mulled cider is guaranteed to deliver some winter cheer. 

Spiced Orange is the latest addition to a range that already comprises original Edinburgh Gin, Raspberry Gin and Elderflower Gin.   Produced in small-batch quantities, only the finest quality ingredients are used to produce a refreshing clean, crisp gin with lots of flavor.

As a result, since its launch in 2010, Edinburgh Gin has won a string of international awards and exceeded sales expectations both in the UK and abroad.

"We wanted to produce a gin with a flavour to match the season. The colour of Spiced Orange is a reminder of autumn leaves on the trees and the oranges give a hint of the cinnamon and spice flavours we all associate with this time of year. It's sure to be popular as a long drink or a cocktail ingredient now that summer is behind us", said Alex Spence, Managing Director of Edinburgh Gin distillers, The Spencerfield Spirit Company.

Spiced Orange will be sold under a partnership distribution agreement between Spencerfield - and one of Scotland's leading, independent family owned distillers, Ian Macleod Distillers.

"Spiced Orange is a great addition to the Spencerfield range and we're convinced it is going to prove very popular as a long drink or a cocktail ingredient now that summer is behind us", said Ian MacLeod Distillers UK Commercial Director Neil Boyd. 

Spiced Orange Edinburgh Gin will be available in selected retailers.
