Pickering Gin is made at the first Gin Distillery in to be establish in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Based on a secret recipe from hidden since 1947 it contains 9 botanicals Juniper, Cardamon, Angelica, Fennel, Anise, Lemon, Lime and cloves. The smooth gin is produced by their 500 litre copper still 'Gert' with a unique heating system which provides a gentle all over simmer to coax out the flavours from the botanicals.
Pickering's is so smooth you can actually have a shot of it neat. But it also makes a cracking G&T. We recommend
:- Thin-rimmed highball glass
- 50ml (double measure) Pickering's Gin
- 150ml tonic - Fever Tree Tonic Water if you like your G&T with a decent amount of fizz
- 4 medium Pickering's and Tonic ice cubes - so your G&T doesn't dilute as you drink it
- Fresh lemongrass, quartered and split OR a segment of fresh pink grapefruit
