Edinburgh distilling is alive again with a new London Dry Gin that pushes lime and pepper notes to center stage.

The Port of Leith Distillery was founded in 2017 by friends Ian Stirling and Patrick Fletcher. They have set their sight aggressively — hoping to bring Single Malt production back to Edinburgh. They have secured a location across from the Royal Yacht Britannia at the Port of Leith to do just that. When completed, it will be the first purpose-built Single Malt Distillery in the city in more than a hundred years. In the meantime they are distilling nearby in the Tower Street Stillhouse, experimenting with new yeast stains, and producing Gin and a unique distilled Sherry.

Lind & Lime was designed to be the very definition of London Dry style. In that vein, they keep it simple. Neutral Spirit is redistilled in-house to infuse seven botanicals. The core of the recipe is juniper, lime, pink peppercorn that shape the character of the Spirit. The rest of the recipe is a secret, but we detect cardamom and anise root, but that’s just us. The final Spirit is bottled in a lovely, Champagne-like decanter at 44% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Lind & Lime Gin is named after Dr. James Lind — a local Edinburgh hero. He discovered that sailors suffering from scurvy improved when they ate citrus fruits. British sailors from then on where provisioned limes and lime-infused beverages to fight off the disease. And it’s how the British acquired the somewhat unflattering nickname "limey."

Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
