SipWell brands has been appointed as the exclusive global travel retail partner for Lind & Lime gin, following on from the brand’s doubling of its bottling capacity last year and its venture into more global markets.
The agreement has taken immediate effect, with availability in Heathrow, Schipol, Singapore, Istanbul, LAX and JFK airports the goal.
Distilled in Edinburgh’s distilling district of Leith and launched in 2018, Lind & Lime is produced with 100% organic ingredients and with 100% green electricity, as well as with plastic free packaging.
Lind & Lime co-founder Ian Stirling commented: “Opening our new energy efficient Lind & Lime distillery in May 2022 has been a game changer in our ability to meet consumer demand for our gin. We’re finally able to take this exciting step into travel retail and in Sipwell, we’ve found a partner with the ambition, experience, and credentials to take this project forward.”
For SipWell, it marks the first gin to be added to its portfolio, which currently includes ultra-premium rum Dictador, Mexican tequila Casa Dragones and premium Caribbean rum Black tot, as well as whiskies The Glenturret, Finn Thomson and Port Askaig among others.
SipWell’s Andrew Torrance said: “We are continuing our strong pace of growth as a business and it is such a privilege to take on a brand of the quality of Lind & Lime which is already capturing attention around the world. The team there strive for perfection in all they do and their focus on innovation excites us all at SipWell.”
