Launched in 2015 by James Porteous, Electric Spirit Co. is based in the Tower Street Stillhouse and sits just a few yards away from the Port of Leith basin. Electric Spirit Co. was the first distillery to operate in Leith for 40 years. When the distillery started it was the size of a small kitchen with just a 10 litre still, a sink and some benches. However, this was where their flagship gin; Achroous was born. Since then, Electric Spirits has grown substantially and moved to the Stillhouse - a space they share with Port of Leith Distillery in a unqiue set up in the distilling world. James has also worked with a number of bar & restaurant owners and event planners to create bespoke, limited edition products that combine both craft and flavour.
