Key Information

Pickering's gin is based on an original Bombay recipe, handwritten on a fragment of paper dated 17 July 1947. Kept as a family secret for over 66 years, it only resurfaced in 2013 when the team (Matt and Marcus) began distilling at Summerhall.

They have now fine-tuned the recipe, perfecting its balance of botanicals and tweaking it to the contemporary palate. The result is a spectacularly smooth, refreshing and flavoursome gin.

The 9 botanicals - juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica, fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves - are carefully measured and added to the grain spirit in a 500 litre copper still. Named Gert.

The secret of the gin's smoothness is Gert's ingenious, custom-designed bain marie heating system. This provides a gentle all-over-heat to the still. Thus the botanicals enjoy a luxurious simmer that coaxes out their subtle, soft, highly drinkable flavours.
