As official gin provider to the East Lothian track, Edinburgh Gin’s portfolio will be available throughout the racecourse’s bars and restaurants and will be presented as prizes to all winning racehorse owners on each race day.

The agreement also includes sponsorship of The Edinburgh Gin Race Day in May, which features The Edinburgh Cup in a six race £100,000 programme, when The Edinburgh Gin Experience Marquee will be installed in a prominent position at the course.

The racecourse will tailor Edinburgh Gin products to suit each bar and a further element of the deal includes sponsorship of the individual Owner, Trainer and Jockey Championships over both the Flat and Jump seasons.
