Scottish Gin Trail

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association has produced a tourist gin trail map showcasing a selection of Scotland's gin distilleries and bars. With 70% of UK gin produced north of the Border, Scottish gin distillers are keen to show they are blazing the trail for the industry. With over 30 gin producers and distillers based in Scotland, and more due to open in 2016, the map is not exhaustive, but is a good starting point. It features big cities in the Central Belt, as well as distilleries as far flung as Shetland and Caithness. The 12 featured are: Arbikie, Angus; Crossbill, Aviemore; Rock Rose, Caithness; Edinburgh Gin, Firkin and The Jolly Botanist, Edinburgh; Eden Mill, Fife; Makar and Gin 71, Glasgow; Caorunn and Gordon Castle, Moray; Strathearn, Perthshire; and Shetland Reel, Shetland.
