Utilising cutting edge projection mapping technology, ‘The Art and Science of Gin’ invites audience members to step into the world of gin like never before.

Exploring Edinburgh’s gin craze of the 1700s through to the global search for botanicals and modern-day distillation, this one-of-a-kind show promises to excite the senses with all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the gin-making process.

Ticket holders can look forward to a welcome drink, a gin tasting session, and a signature serve during the performance.


Set to delight cocktail aficionados and gin lovers alike, this year’s festival marks the launch of Edinburgh Gin’s first ‘Gin Passport’.

Offering a unique taste of the capital’s spirit, festival-goers will explore a series of six pop-up bars in popular locations, including Contini @ the Mound, George Street, Teviot House and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Among the signature serves are classic G&Ts, gin fizzes and exclusive Edinburgh Gin cocktails inspired by some of the city’s most renowned icons; including the ‘Edwyn Collins’, the ‘James Martin Martini’ or the ‘New Town Treasure’.

By collecting a stamp at each of the distiller’s pop-up bars, guests can also lay claim to a complementary drink at Edinburgh Gin’s flagship venue at The Mound.
