‘Best London Dry Gin’ – Scottish Gin Awards 2020
Lind & Lime Gin is an award-winning Scottish gin that is a nod to one of Leith’s historical maritime figures and the Port of Leith’s ties as one of Scotland’s most important trading ports.
James Lind was an Edinburgh born Ship’s Surgeon aboard the HMS Salisbury. Scurvy was rife at the time due to a lack of Vitamin C. Lind carried out a number of trials that showed citrus fruit improved the sailor’s health. Although Lind missed the significance of this observation, he is recognised for pioneering the concept of a ‘fair trial’.
Lind & Lime is a deliciously complex, dry and refreshing gin that is made using seven perfectly balanced botanicals including fresh lime rind.
The bottle is a celebration of the area’s links to wine which arrived at the port for many centuries and was the catalyst for glass production in the area. Each bottle is stamped with Leith Glass Works on the base.
