Founded by Marcus Pickering and Matthew Gammell, the distillery is based in Summerhall Art hub, in a space that used to be the kennels of the Small Animal Hospital at the former Edinburgh School of Veterinary Studies.

The botanicals are macerated for 24 hours with neutral grain spirit in a 500 litre Portuguese made copper still, nicknamed Gert after Matt’s great grandmother.

Pickering's Gin -

With 9 botanicals – juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica, fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves – the gin treads a fine line of being both simple but with a depth of flavour. With fresh, crisp piney notes from the juniper – it’s a classic gin with a twist. With the core flavours present upfront, fennel looms in the background, so too does the cardamom but it’s brought back by the lime.

Pickering's Navy Strength Gin -

For their 7th Batch, they launched a Navy Strength Pickering’s Gin edition to celebrate the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo – the bottles are adorned with a bearskin helmet similar to those worn by guards in their ceremonial military uniform (don’t worry, the caps weren’t made from actual bearskins!). With the same botanical line up, the flavours are similar although there is a pronounced increase in the overall spice of the gin due to the higher ABV.

Pickering's Limited Release 1947 -

This is the Pickering's recipe as it was intended to be. It is made based on the original recipe written in 1947. With stronger flavours of cardamom and cinnamon - this is a bold gin that complements the spicy, almost curried notes of their flagship, more modern interpretation.
