Pickering's Original 1947 5cl
The Pickering's Gin Original 1947 edition is made precisely to the original recipe, as it was written down in Mount Mary, Bombay, in 1947. The botanical mix includes cinnamon, which adds a decidedly warming and spicy kick to the spirit. The Gin is perfect for those who crave a stronger, sweeter and spicier Gin.
Pickering's is the first Gin distillery in Edinburgh for 150 years. This very special gin is made from a Recipe that for almost 66 years was a family secret of the Pickering family. Written on a piece of paper dated 17th July 1947 it would have stayed that way if two men (Marcus Pickering and Matthew Gammell) hadn't met. They did however and in 2013 they opened Pickering's Gin in Summer Hall Edinburgh an old Veterinarian college. In the old Kennels of the building the distillery was constructed and quickly started producing one of the finest gins to have come out of a still in many a long year. Pickering's distillery has 3 main release of gin: Pickering Original, Pickering Gin Original 1947 and Pickering Navy Strength.
