Illicit Spirits' Illicit Gin is a small batch Scottish gin that takes gin back to its roots and is made by true urban craft distillers in a railway arch just south of the River Clyde.

Produced in a traditional direct-fired copper pot still, Illicit Gin is a juniper-led spirit which contains 10 botanicals including coriander, cloves, angelica, cinnamon, orris root and orange peel.

The London-Dry style gin is great when enjoyed as a sipping gin or mixed with tonic.

Tasting Notes

Juniper-led with resin and pine on the nose before the palate is dominated by warming spices including clove and cinnamon which lead to a dry finish from coriander, nutmeg and a little hint of citrus sharpness.

The perfect serve

Perfect served over ice or with your favourite tonic (we recommend Fever Tree Indian Tonic) and finished with a large slice of orange peel and a bashed cardamom pod.

Meet the maker

Launched in 2017 by Darran Edmond, Illicit Spirits are based in a railway arch in the Tradeston area of Glasgow. Illicit Spirits focus on applying traditional methods to produce modern, unique and innovative spirits. The name is a nod to the Illicit distillers of old, who have inspired the choice of still, and also a reference to the hidden location under the tracks heading south from Glasgow Central Station.
