FOUR craft gin makers in Scotland have secured lucrative contracts totalling £800,000 in a deal to supply supermarket giant Asda.

As the market for high-quality unique spirits continues to grow, Eden Mill, Pickerings, Porter’s and Ginerosity Distillery have launched five new products between them at Asda stores.

Eden Mill has secured a deal with Asda to launch its new Original and Love Gin products, both of which exhibit unique flavours. The Original Gin consists of Sea Buckthorn Berries – a super food that grows locally, whilst the Love Gin is created with botanicals sourced from all around the world.

Meanwhile, the additional favoured distillers will launch their newest products including Pickerings 70cl bottle and Ginerosity’s 50cl bottle – the world’s first social enterprise gin distilled by Pickerings with the money raised going towards supporting disadvantaged young adults in Scotland.

Aberdeen’s local distillery, Porter’s, will also see its 70cl bottle hit the shelves with all of the new products available in 13 stores across the country from early May. Gin aficionados can also now purchase the original Edinburgh Gin as well as Rhubarb and Ginger liqueur at 390 stores across the UK after securing a national listing with Asda.

Heather Turnbull, of Asda Scotland, said: “By launching sophisticated spirits such as Eden Mill, Pickerings, Porter’s and Ginerosity in Asda across Scotland, it will now mean that more consumers can enjoy a truly Scottish drinking experience.”
