Lilliard Gin – Lanton, Scottish Borders
Maiden Lilliard was a 16th Century Scottish Heroine, who lived and died in the Scottish Borders. Basically, she watched he lover struck down in battle and charged in sword in hand. What a woman. Anyway, thankfully no-one has had to run into battle sword in hand for the creation of their gin but the story has provided plenty of insipiation for the gin. Launched in 2017 Lilliard Gin backs onto the River Teviot and has an abundance of local flora and fauna which is vital in the creation of the gin.
The carefully chosen botanicals reflect the four seasons of the Borders landscape create which together create a light and elegant gin with a complex floral palate.
Garnish with a slice of fresh orange.
