LIND AND LIME GIN
LIND AND LIME GIN- PORT OF LEITH DISTILLERY
"We set out to create the very definition of what a London Dry Gin should be; to do something very simple, but do it to perfection. With juniper at its core, we use fresh lime peel and a hint of pink peppercorns to create a classic benchmark expression that is balanced, dry and intensely refreshing.
Lind & Lime Gin is forged from the talent, heritage and industry of Edinburgh and its historic distilling district of Leith. In everything that we produce, our watchword is « balance »."

TASTING NOTES (Neat)
NOSE: Juniper and pink peppercorns dominate, with the lime emerging as a sweet citrus scent with a hint of liquorice.
PALATE: The lime zest, pepper and juniper are all in gentle harmony, with a smooth texture derived from the citrus oils that make it very sipable, with peppercorns lingering on the finish.
TASTING NOTES (Gin and Tonic)
NOSE: The tonic releases the ripe aroma of fresh lime, still beautifully mingled with juniper.
PALATE: The balance of juniper and quinine make this a classic G&T, but the crisp ripe citrus make it remarkable refreshing, with the peppercorns gently enhancing the mouthfeel and lingering on a zesty finish.
PERFECT SERVE: We have tested a wide range of tonics and mixers with our gin. Lind & Lime is complex and delicate, and the flavours we’ve created can easily be overwhelmed by many brands of tonic water. As such we’ve found that Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Tonic and Schweppes Signature Crisp Tonic work best as they allow the flavours of Lind & Lime to shine through. So we recommend serving over plenty of ice with a premium tonic of your choice. Finish with a good wedge of lime.
