The Lidl Gin Festival is back with an exciting range of UK gin

Back in spring, Lidl announced that they would be launching their first ever Scottish gin festival.

Complete with gin offerings from Makar to Pickerings, Strathearn Distillery to Orkney Distilling, the event aimed to spotlight some of the finest Scottish craft gin around and sold an astonishing 130 bottles per hour in the first week of sales.

Now, it’s back from Thursday 1 November, and this time it’s UK-wide.

Two previous gins from Scottish Gin Festival will make their return, while a further seven brand new products will hit Scottish Lidl shelves.

These include picks from Kinrara Gin (Estate Dry and Rose & Cardamom Gin) Square Peg Pink Gin, Redcastle Craft Gin, Esker Gin and Lilliard Ruby Gin Liqueur.

Square Peg Pink Gin will join the Scottish line-up

Meanwhile, the British Gin Festival (available in England and Wales only) will showcase top picks from Aber Falls, Opihr, Brecon Gin, Newcastle Dry Gin and even Peaky Blinder gin.

Available while stocks last, the Lidl Gin Festival aims to showcase a wide craft gin landscape across the length and breadth of UK.

Scottish distillers alone will benefit from a combined business deal worth £500,000.
