Gin-lovers and travellers alike will be able to purchase a bottle of the flagship Edinburgh Gin 70cl (RRP £24.99) (ABV 43%) whilst shopping in World Duty Free at Scotland’s capital airport.
The listing will be welcome news to those looking to take home a ‘taste of Edinburgh’ or buy Edinburgh Gin as a gift for friends and family.
The popularity of gin has dominated the UK drinks market in recent years and Edinburgh Gin has been leading the ‘gin-naissance’ in Scotland, producing a range of small-batch gins and fruit-based gin liqueurs.
Andy Lane, Travel Retail Director of Ian Macleod Distillers, parent company of Edinburgh Gin said: “We are delighted to be working with World Duty Free and announce our first listing at Edinburgh Airport. We are frequently asked if customers can buy Edinburgh Gin at the airport and I am delighted to say that now you can. As Scotland’s busiest airport, being able to buy Edinburgh Gin there makes perfect sense for travellers looking for a quality Scottish gin to purchase on their way home.”
World Duty Free Liquor Category Buying Manager UK, Nigel Sandals, adds: “Offering passengers the chance to indulge in premium products specific to the local market helps ensure we’re continually providing the ultimate airport shopping experience. Edinburgh Gin has already been hugely popular amongst travellers at Edinburgh Airport and is a fantastic addition to our wide spirits range.
