The Spirit of Dundee

Verdant Spirits

Verdant Spirits produce the first and only gin distilled in Dundee.

Dundee is a city buzzing with passion and creativity. Combining that fervour with the city’s industrial and historic spirits trade, Verdant has continued the City’s entrepreneurial spirit in the creation of our award-winning gin.

Verdant Spirits

Edward Street Mill, home to Verdant Sprits, has a rich background as the former engine house to John Sharp’s ‘Jute Empire’ and is where our award winning Verdant Dry Gin is created.

I am sure you will enjoy our gin as much as we do and join us on our exciting journey as we continue to produce a new range of craft spirits that build on the city’s rich industrial and international heritage.

Why ‘Verdant’?

The word conjures up an image of lush green plants and botanicals – the heart of a fine gin. But to those who know Dundee the word is also synonymous with its jute and weaving industry, encapsulating the spirit of the city and a flourishing gin business within.

Our emblem depicts the memorial beacon on top of Dundee Law, the extinct volcano around which Dundee has grown… a favourite spot to appreciate the views across the city, the Tay and beyond.

Verdant Spirits

The brief we set ourselves for our first expression was to create a modern yet classic gin. A smooth, sophisticated spirit that is equally refreshing served on its own, with tonic, or at the heart of a vibrant cocktail.

The result is a gin with top notes of juniper and bright citrus, balanced with a global blend of botanicals. These flavours reflect Dundee’s maritime history as one of the most well-connected seaports in Great Britain. Together they combine to give a uniquely distinctive balance and flavour to our Verdant Dry Gin.
