About Rutland Square Gin
Launched in 2021, Rutland Square Gin is made in Edinburgh and inspired by Indian flavours. The gin is named after the building which houses the Indian Consulate in Edingburgh and the lion on the gin's label represents both Scotland and India, as the lion has featured on the coats of arms of Scottish kings and is the state emblem of India. Rutland Square Gin is also a tribute to Tej Ram, grandfather of founder Nishant Sharma and spirit entrepreneur in 1940s India, and the Oolong white tea used in Rutland Square Gin is sourced from a single estate in Assam.
Rutland Square Chai Spiced Gin
The Gin Guide Review: Rutland Square Gin is uniquely pitched as a Chai Spiced Scottish Gin and it delivers very effectively on all elements of this description. From the nose to the finish, the spiced character is evident and purposeful with plentiful depth, from soft, earthy cardamom and cinnamon spice, through to wintery cloves and anise, and peppery notes too. This is well-balanced with a touch of lemon and orange citrus alongside evident juniper and an enjoyable tea presence throughout that leaves a dry finish. - Paul Jackson, 2022
Meet the Makers
"I wanted to create a genuinely Scottish Gin which also paid tribute to my ancestors, something unique in its sense. I took multiple trips to India, visiting cities from Punjab to Assam, handpicking botanicals from each area that my ancestors had walked upon, and botanicals used in day-to-day life such as food, medicine and tea." - Nishant Sharma
