The Lidl Scottish Gin Festival is back in stores in time for the upcoming bank holiday weekend, with prices starting at £1.69.
Launching in-stores from the 27 May, the Lidl Scottish Gin Festival features a range of 12 gin products, including nine from small batch producers.
With distillers from all corners of the country joining the festival, Pickering’s Gin tops the bill with its new Scottish Botanicals Gin (42% ABV).
A twist on Pickering’s best-selling London Dry gin, Scottish Botanicals takes inspiration from our rugged land with, notes of heather, Scots Pine and bog myrtle.
The team say this new gin is best topped with premium tonic water, and served with blackberries and a slice of apple to garnish.
Pickering’s co-founder and head of export Marcus Pickering, said: “The Scottish Botanicals Gin has been an exciting one to create due to the challenge of balancing our famous Pickering’s recipe with the new botanical flavours.
“It is fantastic to be debuting it as part of the Lidl Gin Festival alongside some of Scotland’s most prestigious distillers.”
Another must-try comes from Red Door Distillery with their new Highland Gin with Summer Botanicals (45% ABV).
Carefully crafted in the distillery’s copper pot still ‘Peggy”, this limited edition combines bergamot with the freshness of bitter orange, balanced by delicate floral notes.
Completing the line-up is the award-winning House of Elrick.
Drawing inspiration from their idyllic country house setting, House of Elrick’s new Plum & Peach Gin (40% ABV) features the same taste profile as their signature gin complemented by sweet fruity flavourings.
Available across all Lidl Scottish stores while stocks last, the Scottish Gin Festival kicks off on 27 May.
