    Delicious food on the tasting menu

    The food was excellent although one of the matched wines didn't work with the course. The waiters need more training on the wines they serve.

Opulent gin lounge in Edinburgh’s West End

As the name suggests, gin-lovers will find much to admire at Gin71. Located on South Charlotte Street, just off Charlotte Square, the bar and restaurant serves over 70 different brands of gin. Guests can choose between dozens of gin-based cocktails or perfect gin serves with a wide choice of tonics and garnishes. With table service, chandeliers and plush seating, Gin71 is a smart city centre venue. Open from 5pm, it is popular for after work cocktails, a pre-theatre bite or a splendid dinner.

Juniper-themed menu using Scottish produce

Juniper, gin-inspired ingredients and botanical themed elements are central on the ever evolving menus at Gin71. From the gin to the cheese, the kitchen uses as much seasonal, Scottish produce as possible.

This results in starters such as the winter flower salad with Botanist Gin beetroot, Inverlochy goat’s curd and honeycomb. More substantial options include the venison with chard radicchio, butternut, a dark chocolate reduction and a blackberry and Edinburgh Gin jelly.

The gin flavours continue with desserts such as the gin and dark chocolate fondant accompanied by, among other ingredients, a dark chocolate and Daffy’s Gin fudge foam.
