Edinburgh’s Diminished Reserve has been created by Paul O’Donoghue, the General Manager at Bond 9, 84 Commercial st, Leith. Bond No9 lounge bar stands on the site of a former whisky bond building on the shore at Leith. Leith was once the heart of Edinburgh’s gin distilling in the 1770s when there were eight licenced distilleries and almost 400 illegal stills in Edinburgh and its port of Leith, making this the best place for a fantastic Edinburgh Gin cocktail.
