Escubac - Sweetdram - 70cl
A spicy, citrusy, juniper-free botanical spirit distilled on copper then infused with raisins, vanilla and saffron. Ideal for all modern drinkers suffering from gin fatigue.
Intended to be sipped on its own but also mixes phenomenally well with tonic.
Botanicals: Caraway, cardamom, nutmeg, bitter orange, orange, lemon, cloves, orris, coriander, cubeb, cinnamon, raisins, vanilla and saffron
Tasting notes: Caraway butter on cardamom buns with a tall glass of tropical diluting juice.
Sweetdram was founded in 2014 by Andrew MacLeod Smith and Daniel Fisher, who met in 2011 while studying for their Master’s degrees in brewing and distilling.
Based inside a massive industrial warehouse in Edinburgh, the Sweetdram distillery is an immersive contemporary space and an exciting work-in-progress. The production room, located behind pink doors, houses their custom-made copper production still, whose unusual helical head produces a unique, intensely aromatic spirit.
The rest of the site has been transformed into a non-profit events venue and community hub called 54EP.
