56 North Distillery

It’s only fitting that Scotland’s orginal gin bar should have their own stills. The stills started running in 2018,  with “56 North Distillers Editions”. Summer 2019 saw the launch of South Loch, inspired by the surrounding area.

Researching the local area the team discovered the rich history of The Meadows, once called South Loch and until 1621, provider of much of Edinburgh’s drinking water and water for the local breweries and distilleries. The team had their inspiration, and South Loch Gin was born!

Tours of the distillery are now available, along with the long standing gin masterclasses.
