Holyrood Distillery is the product of Canadians Rob & Kelly Carpenter and Scot David Robertson, who collectively share a love for Edinburgh, Scotch Whisky and interesting challenges. A 180 year old building is being thoughtfully renovated to include a distillery and hands-on, sensory, educational visitor experience.
With the opportunity to bring single malt distilling back to Edinburgh after almost 100 years, Holyrood Distillery will do so with flavour at the forefront. Unconstrained by heritage, category and tradition, their focus will be on experimentation alongside a commitment to produce high-quality, full-flavoured spirits for anyone with an open mind and mouth.
Simple, rich, intense and elegant. Fresh citrus and piney juniper upfont, with liquorice and orris adding a rich mouth feel, a lingering spice, dry finish provided by the angelica, coriander and cassia. Using only the outermost peel and zest of the fresh citrus ensures only the brightest and cleanest citrus flavours shine through.
