In 2012, co-founder Hamish Martin and his wife Liberty bought a derelict 7.5 acre plot of land on the outskirts of Edinburgh, it was there they laid the roots of The Secret Herb Garden.
The couples dream was to create a green space that allowed people to wander freely and enjoy the subtle magic that nature offers. The Secret Herb Garden has over 600 naturally grown and tended varieties of herbs.
As a Herbologist, Hamish spent his time experimenting with the botanicals he so carefully and lovingly nurtured. It was from this exploration into the botanicals that he discovered something that you can’t experience by reading books; the true magic of nature.
With this new found knowledge and his past in the drinks industry, Hamish created a range of 100% natural gins, using the botanicals he had grown in his own sacred space.
The only distillery to have a fully funcyional botanical garden with over 600 naturally grown and tended varieties of herbs and flowers.
The Secret Garden Distillery is most renowned for their highly acclaimed collection of The Herb Garden Premium 100% Natural Handcrafted Floral Gins.
It was never Hamish and Liberty’s intention to create these gins but once they realized the intense flavor of their Lavender and the beautiful color of their roses, they were unable to keep this secret to themselves.
So, in 2017, they released their range of Secret Garden Gins and now continue to create even more natural products using the botanicals grown in their very own Secret Herb Garden.
The Herb Garden Gin is truly unique and created with imagination resulting in an abundance of floral notes and flavors to push the boundary of expectation.

The gins imported by ImpEx Beverages are produced using The Secret Garden Distillery’s base botanicals
(Juniper, Angelica Root, Winter Savoury, & Coriander).
Damask Rose & Juniper
A lovely golden gin with aromas of rose and hints of juniper. It tastes like Turkish Delight with some light citrus and candied cherry. It’s a gorgeous, delicate gin that is as refreshing as it is beautiful.
Perfect serve: Pour over ice and mix with a premium light tonic water and watch it transform from a shimmering gold to a lovely pink in honor of this noble rose’s petals.
Lemon Verbena & Juniper
Crystal clear gin with aromas of citrus, lemon sherbet, and hints of herbs. Its zesty flavors are intermingled with juniper.
Perfect serve: Pour over ice and mix with a premium light tonic water. Garnish with a slice of lemon or a sprig of fresh mint.
Pink Elderflower, Jasmine, & Juniper
A delightful salmon pink gin with aromas of orange and pink grapefruit. On the palate it’s quite exotic with citrus and sweet orange flavors. All the sweetness is coming from the natural residual sugar of the plants.
Perfect serve: Pour over ice and mix with a premium light tonic water and watch it change from salmon pink to a brighter vibrant pink. Serve with a slice of pink grapefruit.
