In 2012, Hamish & his wife Liberty bought a derelict plot of land outside Edinburgh, and in just a short time they have developed the most astonishing Secret Herb Garden. The Garden is 100% natural, they use no chemicals whatsoever, only using plants to heal plants. The botanicals are lovingly cared for by the team of gardeners and each herb is carefully selected due it is medicinal properties. For example, they are the largest grower of the Apothecary Rose in the UK, the only medicinal rose.
Nature is Hamish’s passion and the Distillery’s Secret Garden is home to over 600 varieties of plants. In order to share his passion and demonstrate the magic of nature, Hamish developed a range of gins to showcase the wonderful natural flavours that can be created from their two copper stills – Violet and May. They distil to 39% ABV as they feel this is best for the botanical flavours to harmonise with the gin.
The gin making process is 100% natural and made by hand. The botanicals are hand-harvested and dried naturally to ensure the highest quality. They are distilled, hand bottled and labelled on site. The Secret Garden gins are lovingly crafted to reflect the artistry of The Secret Garden Distillery and the range includes traditional London Dry styles to more contemporary compounded gins.
