Not So New News
We are celebrating our 5th birthday!
This time 5 years ago in Summerhall, Edinburgh, the first batch of Pickering’s gin was distilled, bottled and dispatched to the general public. We didn’t know it then, but we became the first exclusive gin distillery in Edinburgh in over 150 years! So in good spirits, we’d like to share some fond memories...
Pickering’s Gin now available to buy at World Duty Free
After a short delay, we’re delighted to announce that you can now proceed directly to World Duty Free to pick up a bottle of Pickering’s Gin before flying out of Scotland.
Gin Baubles become available in the USA for the first time
That’s right, Pickering’s Gin-filled Christmas Baubles have landed in the U.S.A! For the very first time, the UK’s must-have Christmas-tree upgrade will brighten up festivities across America. Pickering’s Gin elves have filled, capped, ribboned and packed Christmas spirit and cheer into over 1 million brightly coloured ornaments. Each filled and finished by hand in the Scottish Capital’s first exclusive gin distillery for over 150 years (not quite the North Pole, but close enough!) So far, excitement for the Gin Baubles in America has been tree-mendous!
Launching our latest perfect serve
Back in January, we asked our #Ginfriends what is the next thing they’d like to see from us. The overwhelming response: “flavours, flavours, flavours!” But what flavour? Well there could be only one choice. Inspired by our signature serve – Pickering’s Gin & tonic garnished with pink grapefruit – Head Distiller Matt Gammell set about creating our first ever liqueur using the trusty pink grapefruit and fragrant spice that has long been the hallmark of a perfect P&T.
