  • Details

    The original site for the Secret Garden distillery was a derelict plot of land located in the Pentland Hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh - until 2011 when husband and wife Hamish and Liberty Martin bought the site to turn into a gardening paradise. It would grow to include several large greenhouses and plant beds with over 600 varieties of plants and herbs, a cafe, a shop before a distillery opened in 2017, providing an opportunity to showcase some of many plants and botanicals grown on-site.

    In 2022, a new chapter began for the business as the Armstrong family, who had recently returned to Scotland from abroad, took over the stewardship. With a shared love for gin, plants, and the outdoors, the Armstrongs saw The Secret Garden as more than just a business opportunity. They saw it as a chance to nurture and build upon the founder’s goals and legacy, ensuring a seamless continuation of our journey.

    The business ethos is ‘Rooted In Nature’, and the Armstrong family has continued to research and invest in making the business more sustainable and looking at ways to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2023, the gardens were connected to a water supply from an on-site borehole, which provides fresh, clean water for the greenhouses, gardens and distillery. Several bee hives in the gardens also help pollinate the many flowers, plants and botanicals. The hives also play a crucial role in helping support the UK bee population, which has been slowly declining.

    The 'Wild' gin includes a variety of botanicals foraged from the site, including bog myrtle, nettle, sweet cicely, dwarf birch, sweet woodruff and winter savoury, along with 'classic' elements such as coriander and angelica.

    However, the gin is not as intense as you might expect - there is a hint of pine trees and white pepper but there is also a surprisingly soft texture which makes this very able to hold it's own in a simple dry Martini.
