Edinburgh Gin producer Spencerfield Spirits Co has added a gin made with seaweed to its portfolio. Seaside Gin's botanicals include seaweed, scurvy grass and ground ivy, sourced from the Edinburgh coastline.

The gin was developed as a result of an agreement between Edinburgh Gin and Heriot-Watt University. Four postgraduate MSc students worked with head distiller David Wilkinson to create Seaside Gin. It will have an initial run of 1,000 bottles.

Other special editions from Spencerfield include a Christmas gin, launched last November.
