Made in small batches and infused with some heady botanicals including sea buckthorn, elderflower, rosehip and lemon thyme, handpicked from the beautiful local sand dunes, seashore and hedgerows, Fidra is a crystal clear, pure and fragrant gin with a slightly salty tang of the sea.
Emma and Jo have been friends for years and have worked together over the last two years to make the dream of Fidra Gin become a reality. Emma formerly worked in finance and Jo is a healthcare professional. After many years of self-employment, they wanted a new project they could be passionate about.
Emma and Jo have a love of gin and wanted to create a locally foraged gin, using a range of botanicals from the East Lothian coast.
They purchased a 5 litre still called Sadie and the Fidra Gin journey began. Following a lot of experimentation and encouragement from fellow gin makers, Fidra Gin was officially launched in September 2018.
