Celebrating the very best of the nation’s craft distillers, Lidl’s first ever Scottish Spirits Festival includes a winter themed tipple from popular Moray distiller leading the line-up.
Packing a festive punch is Benromach Distillery’s seasonal Red Door London Dry Winter Edition (£23.99, 70cl) filled with winter flavours and aromas from warm citrus notes to the classic Christmas cake.
The festival brings a winter twist in the form of a White Chocolate Vodka (£15.99, 70cl), crafted by the Carnoustie Distillery and infused with a hint of white chocolate.
A must-try of the winter-themed festival is the new Shetland Reel Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (£19.99, 70cl) from Saxa Vord Distillery.
Served neat with a touch of water on the rocks, the Scotch perfectly captures the festive season.
With the trend for low alcohol spirits continuing to grow, CeroCero’s Non-Alcoholic Citrus Gin (£9.99, 70cl) brings the craft and flavour of gin, best served over crushed ice with tonic and fresh berries.
Not forgetting the gin lovers, Pickering’s Gin Baubles (£15.99, 50cl) from Edinburgh’s Summerhall Distillery are the ultimate decoration for any tree.
Paul McQuade, Head of Buying in Scotland said:
“At Lidl, we’re firmly committed to supporting and championing local producers, and are incredibly proud of our expansive Scottish product range.
