With a whole heap of Bank Holiday weekends on their way, it may be the perfect time to visit Edinburgh. Especially now that gin enthusiasts will soon be able to try the magical colour-changing Ink Gin as it is only available to try at One Square. Hailing from Australia, the craft gin turns from deep blue to a blush pink upon the addition of tonic water and is not currently available at any other venue in Edinburgh.
One Square Edinburgh is located in the heart of Edinburgh overlooking Festival Square and Edinburgh Castle and carries an extensive selection of 105 gin variations! Now stocking Ink Gin, this bar is one to watch out for. Ink Gin is made up of 13 different botanicals from eight countries across five continents, including Tasmanian Pepper Berry, Guatemalan Cardamom and Egyptian coriander. Though it is the Butterfly Pea flower from Thailand, which is responsible for the gin’s remarkable distinctive colour changing properties.
Tobiasz Sipowicz, Bar Manager at One Square, said: “At One Square, gin is our business and finding unique spirits new to the UK like Ink Gin is great for our bartenders and guests alike – our team get to experiment with an exciting, fresh product and our customers can enjoy an exclusive, sought-after gin. With One Square being the only location to sell the spirit, it looks like Edinburgh has become Ink Gin’s unofficial European home! We’re sure it will receive a warm Scottish welcome.”
The distributor’s Director, Steve McKenzie said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing Edinburgh’s reaction to Ink Gin. It usually ends up pleasantly surprising even the most experienced of gin-lovers”.
Also available for Gin Lovers, Ink Gin will also feature in One Square’s regular ‘Ginnasium’ gin tasting masterclasses for both beginners or gin experts. The experience costs £35 and can be booked online. Pretty good value when you receive juniper water on arrival, 4 gins of your choice paired with recommended tonic, a full demonstration throughout the experience showing how gin comes to life and get to wax and seal your own miniature bottle of One Square gin to take away with you and a One Square goodie bag.
So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and book a trip to Edinburgh now to try Ink Gin and visit One Square!
