Edinburgh Gin | The cocktail we'll be drinking this summer

Edinburgh Gin

Lovers of rhubarb and ginger rejoice – everyone’s favourite flavour just got even more interesting thanks to Edinburgh Gin who have added a full-strength gin (40% ABV) to its much-loved line-up. We think we just found our summer cocktail of choice.

To get your hands on the new full-strength gin head to John Lewis stores and Sainsbury’s Scottish stores. Priced at £28.

Get drinks to your door

Kilmurray & Co

We’ve found the next best thing to having a bartender at home; takeaway cocktails delivered straight to your door. In a Glasgow first, Kilmurry & Co (pictured) now delivers cocktail coolers to homes within a three-mile radius of the Southside neighbourhood bistro and bar on Kilmarnock Road. If you’re not that end of town, Drinkly.co.uk delivers chilled booze to your door within an hour throughout Edinburgh and Glasgow (free delivery on orders over £40). Cheers!

Free breakfast anyone?

To spread the ‘feel-good’ factor of organic food far and wide, Organic UK is inviting people up and down the nation to ‘Wake Up to Organic’ and celebrate with a free organic mini breakfast on 12 June. Lots of local businesses, including Real Foods on 8 Brougham Street and 37 Broughton Street and Beetroot Sauvage, 33-41 Ratcliffe terrace, will be helping to spread the love.
