Pickering's 1947 Edition Gin

Pickering's 1947 Edition Gin

70cl | 42% ABV | Scotland

The 1947 Pickering's edition is made precisely to the original recipe, as it was written down in Bombay, 1947. The added cinnamon used in this version gives the profile a decidedly fragrant warmth.

Spicier, sweeter and more intense than the 'red top' version, 1947 is a decadent trip back to the last days of Raj. Cardamom, coriander, clove and cinnamon spice lead to a crisp, refreshing and long finish. Add ice, tonic and a slice of orange.

Key Flavours

"Dried fennel is absolutely clear on the nose, this time backed by anise and a sweet twang of citrus. There's a deft subtlety and layered taste, allowing it to have a clear personality. Distinct and memorable gin."

About this product

Once they have carefully prepared and measured the botanicals, they add them to the grain spirit in the stills. Here the ingredients enjoy a slow luxurious simmer, which coaxes out their subtle, soft, highly drinkable flavours.

Pickering's was founded by Matt Gammell and Marcus Pickering, who have been friends and business partners for years, with backgrounds in engineering, furniture restoration and property renovation.

Founded in 2013, Summerhall Distillery was the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. It stands in the middle of what was once the old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School and animal hospital.

To make Pickering’s Sloe Gin, the team have tailored the botanicals in their award-winning Pickering’s Gin to produce the perfect base for infusing ripe, plump sloe berries.

"Really classic Sloe Gin - perfect for countryside walks and wintertime sipping. The base gin lends itself so well to the fruit, layering this Sloe with warming spice and resinous juniper."
