Lind & Lime Gin (70 cl)
Lind & Lime Gin is a nod to one of Leith's historical maritime figures and the Port of Leith's ties as one of Scotland's most important trading ports.
James Lind was an Edinburgh born Ship’s Surgeon aboard the HMS Salisbury. Scurvy was rife at the time due to a lack of Vitamin C. Lind carried out a number of trials that showed citrus fruit improved the sailor’s health. Although Lind missed the significance of this observation, he is recognised for pioneering the concept of a ‘fair trial’.
Lind & Lime is a deliciously complex, dry and refreshing gin that is made using seven perfectly balanced botanicals including fresh lime rind.
The bottle is a celebration of the area's links to wine which arrived at the port for many centuries and was the catalyst for glass production in the area. Each bottle is stamped with Leith Glass Works on the base.
Perfectly balanced with juniper at its core, Lind & Lime features zesty, refreshing lime which has been counterbalanced by a touch of spice from pink peppercorns.
The perfect serve
We recommend serving over plenty of ice with a premium tonic of your choice. Finish with a good wedge of lime.
Meet the maker
Established by two friends in 2017, Port of Leith Distillery is situated just a stone's throw from the docks where for many centuries, a vast array of goods came into Scotland including spices, botanicals and spirits including Jenever from Holland and rum from the Caribbean. From the stillhouse, the talented distillers produce small batch spirits including sherry and gin. 2019 will see the start of construction for their new, purpose-built distillery which will be over 5 floors and will become Scotland's first vertical distillery.
