The Old Curiosity Distillery and Secret Herb Garden
The Secret Herb Garden has over 600 naturally grown and tended varieties of herbs that have been used in the production of many wonderful natural products: candles, beer, wine, and herbal salts among them. As well as providing top Edinburgh restaurants with unique natural ingredients.
With over 30 year’s experience in the drinks trade and a passion for creating unique tipples from glorious natural ingredients, Hamish began experimenting.
Beginning with Apothecary Rose, an ancient ingredient in tinctures and tonics, he discovered a natural reaction that can only be explained by the magic of nature: a natural colour change, the magical beginning of Secret Garden Gin.
Over time Hamish developed many more concoctions of fine gin and hand-grown herbs, then took to exploring a barn full of curious things.
It is most renowned for the highly acclaimed and multi-award winning collection of premium, 100% natural, Secret Garden Gins which are stocked by some of the UK’s most prestigious retailers and now exported to 11 countries around the globe.
