This multi-award winning, marvellously mixed gin is hand crafted at Summerhall Distillery – the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Based on an original Bombay recipe, kept secret since 1947, Pickering’s comes in three delicious bottlings as well as the occasional special edition. All of them spectacularly smooth and beautifully balanced. There are 9 botanicals in each edition of Pickering’s: juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica (cinnamon in the 1947 gin), fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves. They are carefully prepared and measured. Then they’re added to the grain spirit in one of our 500 litre copper stills. These curvaceous dames are named Gert and Emily, after the founders’ maternal great-grandmothers. (Rumours that these ladies were also fat and smelt of gin are roundly refuted.)
