Number Nineteen gin
Following our hotel’s return to InterContinental, and the great success of our No.25 gin, we’ve once again joined forces with local distiller Ray Clynick from The Oro Distilling Co. to create a brand-new gin. Number Nineteen gin is dedicated to InterContinental® Edinburgh – The George and we think it’s the perfect embodiment of all that InterContinental brings: global sophistication and true dedication to exceptional quality with its blend of worldly botanicals and artisan craftsmanship.
Featuring a blend of 15 botanicals from around the world, Number Nineteen has a classic London dry style with a fresh, bright note. On the palate there is a beautiful botanical combination of Italian and Moroccan coriander, Sri Lankan cinnamon and Spanish citrus and Macedonian juniper, it delivers robust juniper and bright citrus flavours and finishes on a smooth dry note that ensures the classic dry style is enjoyed.
Ray Clynick, managing director and head distiller for The Oro Distilling Co. said:
“We’re really excited to launch the new Number Nineteen gin brand, the bottle looks fantastic with the design mirroring the elegance, quiet opulence and timelessness of The George. With our exclusive blend of botanicals, we recommend a Mediterranean tonic with a garnish of an orange twist to bring out the flavours.”
The label for Number Nineteen has been cleverly designed to reflect the hotel’s Georgian heritage with an original map of George Street and the label border that is reminiscent of a Georgian door number.
