It’s Gin o’clock at Colonnades

Signet Gin and afternoon tea at Colonnades, Edinburgh - smaller

A signature blend of Edinburgh Gin has been created which is available only at the exclusive Colonnades at The Signet Library.

Served with Edinburgh’s most glamorous afternoon tea, the specially created ‘Signet Gin’ has been vapour infused with Ginger Chai and Rooibos Tea, along with the delicious Edinburgh Gin blend of juniper, milk thistle, coriander and orange zest.

Colonnades at Edinburgh’s historic Signet Library opened in June following a major refurbishment including bespoke silverware, intricate gold leaf, unique lighting and a handwoven carpet.  Initial visitors were offered a range of gins to test, assisting the team in choosing a gin that represents the Colonnades and its luxurious offering of the finest in food and drink.

A selection of signature cocktails and mixers has been launched in honour of the new gin blend, and the skilled waiting staff from Heritage Portfolio can recommend the accompaniments and garnishes that bring out the flavour of the Signet Gin.

Use of the new drink has also been extended into the superb food offering, including an infused salmon available within the light lunches and featuring within the sumptuous afternoon tea menu.

Mark Miller, Executive Director, at Heritage Portfolio said:

“We have spent the past few months working with Edinburgh Gin to produce this beautiful, unique tasting gin and are pleased with the result. The gin is absolutely delicious, and is already proving very popular with customers.

“Gin has seen a surge in popularity over recent years, and a commemorative gin is the perfect complement to our fabulous afternoon tea. The team here loves Edinburgh Gin and working with this fantastic brand fits our ethos to use local, high quality suppliers wherever possible.”

Alex Nicol, Managing Director at Edinburgh Gin added:

“It has been a privilege to work with Heritage Portfolio to carefully craft a gin for the exquisite Colonnades at The Signet Library. Signet Gin is vapour infused with Rooibos Tea Leafs and Ginger Chai, creating a unique tasting gin that matches the delicious seasonal ingredients found in the Colonnades afternoon tea.”

Signet Gin is available now at Colonnades, and will also be offered to all events taking place at the Signet Library.

Colonnades is already making a name for itself as the finest afternoon tea in Edinburgh, and is in the top three for restaurants in the Capital on Trip Advisor. Due to popular demand, it is now open on Sundays, with bookings available 9am – 5pm, Sunday to Friday (closed Saturdays).
