Achroous is Electric Spirit Company’s signature gin. Distilled in Leith, Edinburgh since 2015, Achroous is a fragrant, aromatic gin, made in small batches by company founder James Porteous. With a rich juniper backbone, earthy sweetness from fennel seed, and a citrusy, floral note from Sichuan peppercorns, this is a classic gin with a modern twist.
“With fennel and Szechuan pepper to the fore, it’s a bold, yet aromatic style and purists will be reassured by the hefty whack of juniper, too. A distinctively different, yet respectful variant on the classic style”
Chris Losh, Editor-in-chief, Imbibe Magazine
“At the cutting edge of the vibrant Scottish craft distilling scene.”
