Lidl Have Released an Awesomely Autumnal Violet & Blackberry Gin

Lidl violet and blackberry gin

Lidl’s spirits shelves are now stocked with a delicious new autumnal gin, released under their award-winning Hortus brand.

It’s a violet gin, infused with violet and blackberry, making for a deep, rich purple colour when poured.

Other Hortus-branded Lidl gins retail for £15.99 so we expect Hortus Violet & Blackberry Gin to be about the same price.

This tasty flavoured gin is set to be popular over the festive period due to it’s colour – it’s a great candidate for pretty cocktails at Christmas parties.

Despite the budget price tag Lidl gins have consistently performed well at international spirits award ceremonies.

Earlier this year Lidl won gold at the Gin Masters 2019 awards. Hortus Artisan Citrus Garden Gin, Hortus Artisan Oriental Spiced Gin, Hortus Artisan Sloe Liqueur and others bagged the top prize, beating more expensive opposition.

It’s a great time to pop down to your local Lidl store because the Lidl Gin Festival 2019 is in full swing, showcasing a wide range of gins – from London Dry to fragrant liqueurs and everything in between.

If you’re a fan of budget supermarkets then be sure to also check out Aldi’s fabulous range of Christmas gins.

Hortus Violet & Blackberry Gin is available in selected Lidl stores across the UK.
