Lind & Lime Gin

The first tipple to come from Edinburgh’s Port of Leith Distillery has arrived in the shape of Lind & Lime Gin!

The Dr (James Lind) took a base spirit at 96% ABV and re-distilled it with a carefully curated recipe of 7 botanicals to ensure that each of them worked in delicate harmony. The main three being:

Juniper: the cornerstone of any gin. It’s what makes gin gin. Indeed the English name ‘gin’ is derived from the Dutch word for juniper: jenever.

Lime: He decided early on that he wanted a lime flavour in the gin. Not fruit pastel, confected lime, but zesty refreshing lime, which they extract this from the rind, or skin of the lime.

Pink Peppercorn: The lime needed something to counterbalance it and the answer they found was a gentle addition of spice from pink peppercorns.

    Nose:  A fresh nose with sour lemon and sweet orange blossom. Savoury juniper spice and a bouquet of dried flowers round it off.

    Palate: Initially very light and elegant. Warm cubeb pepper spice kicks into life, before it’s tempered by sweet liquorice, orange oil and earthy juniper.

    Finish: Short, with a slightly perfumed conclusion.
