Ian Macleod Distillers (Edinburgh Gin)
Ian Macleod Distillers is privileged enough to remain one of the most widely respected Scottish independent family firms in the spirits industry, with four generations of expertise, distilling, blending and bottling to our name.
Like a lot of successful family businesses, our story began with someone pouring heart and soul into something they believed passionately in. Our founder, Leonard Russell Snr, pushed at the very limits of his craft and quickly became known for making whisky to exacting standards. Of course, when you make whisky that good, you soon attract interest from those with a similar appreciation for the finer things in life.
80 years on, our family has grown, and today we have an enviable portfolio of much-loved world-class premium Scotch whisky, gin, and rum brands. Each may look and taste very different yet is crafted with the same undeniable passion and commitment to quality.
Our independence gives us the freedom to make our own decisions. Whether that’s steadfastly respecting and honouring the unhurried traditions of the past, or fully embracing bold and innovative methods and exciting flavour combinations. We recognise that being unafraid of evolution is what will give us a place at the table for the next 80 years.
Born in 2010, Edinburgh Gin is distilled in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, we take inspiration from the wonder-filled city that is our name’s sake. Our gins represent one of the most varied and vibrant ranges of gins in the world.
Our expertise and commitment to crafting exceptional, category-defining gins, using only the best botanicals and natural flavours.
