The flavour profile for this gin is based around one of Leith’s historical maritime figures and the Port of Leith’s ties as one of Scotland’s most important historical 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 Gin is created using seven carefully curated botanicals that work in harmony to create a fresh and balanced flavour profile. The lime zest, pepper and juniper are all in gentle harmony, with a smooth texture derived from the citrus oils that make it very sip-able. Peppercorns linger, but it’s the crisp, refreshing citrus that remains longest on the finish.
