Tour Guide


Salary: 22,000

Location: Lind & Lime Gin Distillery


2022 has already proven to be a very exciting year at Muckle Brig as we finally opened our new Lind & Lime Gin distillery on Coburg Street. This greatly enhanced our production capacity for gin, but also provided us with a superb new brand home where we now welcome visitors for weekly tours. The feedback and response to these tours has been superb.

In the brief few months since we opened, the new distillery space has also accommodated festival launches, private events and supper clubs with some of Edinburgh’s top restaurants. We have a fantastic venue here, and we want to grow its reputation across the city.

Moving forward, the Port of Leith Distillery will open in early 2023. This is intended to become a major new tourism landmark in Edinburgh. We’d better start planning the launch parties!
