The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte hotel in Edinburgh, launched its first premium own-label Scottish gin ‘Baile Mhoireil’, January 2020. In partnership with The Old Curiosity Distillery, the hotel has thoughtfully created a gin inspired by the breathtaking Scottish landscapes, embodying the country’s well-loved culture and spirit. Every detail has been considered, from the Gaelic name translating to ‘Majestic Dwelling’, in honour of the grandeur of the property located in the heart of Edinburgh, to the bottle design and the perfect serve.
Baile Mhoireil features a string of local botanicals including rosemary, dill, sage, chamomile, anise and lemon verbena, all hand harvested exclusively from The Old Curiosity Distillery, located just 6 miles from the hotel, to create a unique and refreshing flavour with hints of subtle citrus notes. The zesty spirit drinks perfectly when served with tonic, dried grapefruit, a sprig of rosemary and a spritz of lemon verbena.
