Back for its fifth year, the Lidl Scottish Gin Festival celebrates the booming craft spirits industry in Scotland by bringing some brands to its shelves for the first time.

A selection of some of the nation’s artisan spirits from distillers including Esker and Shetland Reel will be available for a limited time during the popular in-store festival.

From classic London dry style to fruit flavoured, the festival showcases a collection of unique spirits at great value prices for shoppers to try at home, including Esker Scottish Raspberry Gin and CeroCero Citrus Non Alcoholic Botanical Spirit.

The Lidl Scottish Gin Festival will also feature Shetland Reel’s Ocean Sent - a gin inspired by the seas that surround the Shetland Islands, and flavoured with native bladderwrack seaweed - and Old Curiosity's new Hot Pink Rose colour changing gin.

Paul McQuade, head of buying in Scotland said “At Lidl, we remain firmly committed to supporting and championing local producers, and are incredibly proud of our expansive Scottish product range.

“We’re delighted to be launching another collection of quality artisan Scottish gins through our now-famous annual festival, allowing us to showcase craft gins distillers to shoppers across the country, many for the first time, offering unrivalled value and a journey of discovery for gin lovers in Scotland.”
