Height of Arrows Gin
The challenge for us when making Height of Arrows was whether we could make a gin with a whisky maker's mindset. Whisky’s vast array of flavours rely on distillers’ expertise in using just three ingredients, water, malted barley and yeast. In creating Height of Arrows we sought to create a gin that followed the same principle of utilising a few ingredients to achieve an abundance of flavour. Height contains just three ingredients, juniper, Isle of Skye sea salt and natural beeswax.
A balanced presentation of clean fresh pine & resin coupled with light citrus zest.
Initially oily and mouth coating with juicy and rich orange zest and lemon pith then a bold emergence of black pepper and cardamom, tempered with tapered herbaceous smoothness.
Long, smooth and dry finish with effervescent spicy notes.
This product does not contain any of the 14 main allergens. Suitable for vegetarians. Not suitable for vegans.
Juniper creates complex flavours that range from fresh pine and bold citrus to peppery spices.
We use salt as a natural flavour enhancer, marrying with juniper to impart a further depth of flavour.
Beeswax acts as the finishing touch, creating a luxuriously smooth texture.
Arthur’s Seat and the Height of Arrows
We are constantly inspired by our surroundings in Edinburgh. Holyrood Distillery sits in the shadow of the towering Arthur’s Seat that stands at 251 metres above Edinburgh’s old town. From its top you can see the entire city, and from below, it is never far from view. Of all the landmarks in Edinburgh none are as dramatic or imposing. The Gaelic name for the mountain was Àrd-Na-Said, which literally means Height of Arrows. Arthur’s Seat’s height is said to be the furthest distance an archer could fire an arrow. This local landmark and the story behind its name went hand in hand with what we are trying to achieve at Holyrood Distillery, to push our spirit thinking to the limits of possibility.
