Celebrating ten craft distilleries from all over Scotland, Lidl’s latest Scottish Gin Festival is offering gin lovers a taste of the country’s natural landscape.
Five of the gins featured in the festival will hit Lidl shelves for the first time including GlenWyvis GoodWill Gin from the first 100% community-owned distillery, a unique gorse-flavoured spirit from Isle of Bute Gin and Wild Thyme Spirit’s Colonsay Gin Solas edition.
Aberdeenshire distilleries will also join the line-up including two gin expressions from House of Elrick and a ready-to-drink G&T can from BrewDog’s sister company, Lonewolf.
In addition, hugely popular Shetland Reel’s Filska Gin, will be available as part of the collection alongside Kinrara Lime and Lemongrass hailing from Aviemore, and Angus-produced Redcastle Strawberry and Elderflower Gin Liqueur. Evoking flavours of summer, these Lidl exclusives are perfect for a refreshing G&T or creative cocktail.
Shetland Reel Filska Gin and Strathearn Heather Rose Gin will also be available to the rest of the UK as part of the simultaneous British Gin Festival.
Paul McQuade, Head of Buying in Scotland said “Scotland has a hugely diverse gin offering and we are proud to be supporting local craft distilleries through our third Scottish Gin Festival. Offering a true taste of the vast landscape, we are showcasing a diverse collection of spirits from Shetland to Strathearn.
