To celebrate being the official gin of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, we’ve dressed in tartan, put our medals on display and added 4 Scottish botanicals to create this special collector’s edition bottle of Pickering’s Gin.
Tasting Notes: Indigenous Scottish heather, milk thistle, bog myrtle and Scots Pine lend sweet earthy and floral notes to our characterful Bombay recipe, for a spectacularly smooth and stirring spirit.
The Perfect Serve: Perfect in a G&T with slices of green apple and fresh blackberries.
Is it a whisky? Is it a gin? It’s Pickering’s Oak Aged Gin! Pickering's Gin is distilled in the usual way, then aged (finished) in a Scotch whisky cask. In this case, a whisky cask from the Islay region. The small island of Islay is home to Scotland’s most powerful and peaty whiskies.
On the nose: Fresh, woody pencil shavings and toasted malt cereal. Slight salt and white pepper heat. Hints of fresh cut grass with gentle peat underneath.
On the palate: Creamy, salted butter and subtle vanilla fudge notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel followed by gentle, sweet bonfire smoke. Cheeky undertones of lemon citrus leaning into mild pepper heat on the finish.
The Perfect Serve:
Serve neat or on ice, like your favourite whisky. Or serve long with ice, ginger ale and an orange twist.
