Powerfully spirited and spicy on the nose. Then into the palate, bold juniper with a kick of pepper and piquant spice with lingering spice with fresh citrus notes to finish.
Edinburgh Cannonball Gin
Edinburgh Cannonball Gin is a navy strength gin from Edinburgh Gins that packs quite a punchy character thanks to the ABV.
They have used double strength juniper and Szechuan peppercorns to add a spicy note while zesty lemon and orange balance out the citrus profile. Edinburgh Cannonball Gin is a hearty tipple that’s sure to make an impression – much like a cannonball would.
Cannonball is a strong, characterful gin that can be enjoyed straight up as the base of a gin and tonic – or try it in a strong spicy cocktail, see our recommendation below.
The idea for the Cannonball Gin came from Edinburgh’s rich naval heritage of cannons and the famous One O’clock Gun. Edinburgh Cannonball Gin resurrects a historic style of gin commissioned by the British Navy, and a homage to Edinburgh’s seafaring past.
Fiery chili meets the intense spice of our Cannonball Gin, in this no-nonsense cocktail that packs some heat.
Muddle some chillies (choose your own heat preference, carefully) in a mixing glass and add 2 to 1 Cannonball Edinburgh Gin and Campari with a splash of sugar syrup and 4 dashes of bitters. Add ice and shake well before a double-strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a burnished chilli slice.
