Lidl to launch first ever Scottish Gin Festival

Featured Image for Lidl to launch first ever Scottish Gin Festival

Lidl is a bona fide gin destination on its own.

The supermarket’s own Hortus Gin comes at an awesome price tag, winning blind taste tests and even Good Housekeeping’s taste test this month. Plus, Lidl’s Scottish Raspberry and Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueurs practically fly off the shelves.

But the Lidl Scottish Gin Festival changes everything.

Get this: Lidl are launching a brand new range of craft Scottish gins from 3 May until stocks last.

Six distilleries are bringing 8 new gins to your local Lidl. The gin distilleries hail from a breadth of Scotland, from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Shetland and Orkney.

The participating Scottish distilleries include: Pickerings, Glasgow Distillery, Strathearn Distillery, Hazel & Hazel, Orkney Distilling and Shetland Distillery.


See: Lakes Gin is now officially available at Tesco
