Pickering’s Original Gin 1947

“This edition is made precisely to a Pickering’s original recipe, as it was written down in Mount Mary, Bombay, in 1947. Here the botanical mix includes cinnamon, which adds a decidedly warming and spicy kick to the spirit.” http://pickeringsgin.com/

We paid a visit to Summerhall Distillery in January 2017 where we met the team and sampled their amazing range of gins. The recipe for this gin is now 70 years old yet it still stands out as one of the greats among all the newer, more experimental recipes.

Tasting notes: Spicier, sweeter and more intense, it’s a decadent trip back to the last days of the Raj. Cardamom, coriander, clove and cinnamon spice lead to a crisp, refreshing and long finish.
