Ian Stirling, Co-founder of Lind & Lime Gin said:

“There’s no doubt 2022 has been a more challenging year for trading, but, for the most part, in-market sales continue to grow despite fluctuating global macroeconomics.

“Germany has remained our strongest performing market overseas for 2022, with outstanding market performances in Italy and Israel.

“We’ve been able to engage new markets in the USA, Canada and South Korea and are now looking towards favourable opportunities in 2023, with more new markets coming on-board.

“Lind & Lime is special, because of the simplicity and quality of its ingredients. When we were first devising our gin, it was the height of the gin boom in the UK, and it felt like an exotic new brand was being launched every week. Nevertheless, we felt like there was a place for a new brand that could cut through the noise and deliver the very essence of what a London Dry Gin should be. This is as true now as it was when we were starting out back in 2014 and we look forward to enjoying further success as we continue to grow the brand in the UK and internationally.”

Earlier this year, Lind & Lime Gin rolled up the shutters on their new, energy efficient distillery in the historic Port of Leith allowing the award winning gin to double its bottling capacity and welcome up to 10,000 visitors to its new tour and tasting experience.

Lind & Lime Gin is available to buy from selected independent retailers, John Lewis and online via Master of Malt and Leith Export Co.
