56 North our Go To Location for Drinks & Cocktails in Edinburgh


Between the four of us, we have been to 56 North a very large handful of times. It is for this reason that I have decided to talk about what a wonderful place it is. For those of you who don't know, 56 North is Gin heaven. Their gin menu is literally like a Bible and it's one of my favourite books. They source their gin from all over Scotland, and its such a treat to have so much variety knowing thats it's local (although if you are as indecisive as myself then it can be a bit of a nightmare). Not to mention, they also have plenty of delicious cocktails for non-gin lovers... if they even exist.



Other than the amazing array of gin/cocktails, the food at 56 North is also wonderful. Throughout my many times there I have tried the burgers the steak the Hendricks sorbet with smoked salmon (absolute must try) and pretty much all of the sides including my faves; asparagus spheres with parmesan, whole roasted avocado and sweet potato fries. Everything I have had so far has been amazing. During my most recent visit I  decided to try the 'Mezze Board' which included Mediterranean veg, olives, smoked paprika chicken breast, the roasted avocado, soft goats cheese, a yoghurt/coriander dip and some ciabatta bread. Due to my indecisiveness, this was the perfect choice for me and every element of the dish was so tasty. I will definitely be having that again.


Even better, the 'Secret Gin Garden' which I was lucky enough to have time to visit during the festival as it is closed for the rest of the year, was such a nice place to relax and enjoy a gin for that one day it was sunny in August. It is the perfect location to get away from the craziness of the festival but just a quick walk away from it all. They also serve brunch from 11-2pm everyday which sadly I have not yet had the chance to try but I will definitely keep in mind for future brunch dates.



Some advice for anyone who is looking to visit, don't be intimidated by the 9541487 gin's on offer, the staff are so helpful and knowledgeable they won't let you go wrong. And if you really want to learn more then you can book yourself a Gin Masterclass!
