Pickering's Gin Red Top
Pickering's Gin is based on an old 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 they began distilling at Summerhall, right in the heart of Edinburgh.
By the time they launched in 2014 they had 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 with bold flavours of citrus and juniper giving way to intense warming spice of cardamom, coriander seed and clove.
