Lenzie Gin was developed by owners of multi-award winning shop Billington’s of Lenzie, Mark and Sue Billington. The idea was born from the shop’s gin club and their love of gin and the complexity of botanicals. Determined to develop a gin that would represent the local area, investigations were initiated to source and research local botanics.
After exploring the area and with guidance from ‘The Friends of Lenzie Moss’, it was discovered that cranberry and bilberry both grow locally on the popular nature reserve in Lenzie. Development began and the first bottle was produced in June 2018.
The label was designed by owner Sue and includes the iconic Queen’s Building, which houses the Billington’s shop and the illustration highlights the berries used in distillation.
On the nose, floral berry and juniper with a hint of bark and zest. To taste, sweet on the tongue with a punch of juniper and lasting fresh berry delivered to the finish. A dry, lasting impression.
