Lidl's 'Aquine' Gin Pays Tribute to Scotland's National Animal

Over the past few years, consumers with a love of all things fantastical have been treated to countless products inspired by unicorns—and now, Lidl is launching its own-label unicorn gin.

The Scottish gin from the budget supermarket was created in partnership with The Glasgow Distillery and pays tribute to the fact that the unicorn was officially named Scotland's national animal sometime in the 1300s.

The gin spirit is made up of eight botanicals, including orange peel, lemon peel, juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root, rosehip, liquorice and bramble, for a taste that is said to be "full-bodied with a fruity finish." The name of the new spirit, Aquine, is a combination of the words "aqua" and "equine," which references the Scottish water that is used in the making of the product.
