Summerhall Disitllery was founded by friends Marcus and Matt and their desire to create the perfect G & T. At the time it was the first Gin Distillery to be opened in Edinburgh in over 150 years! Marcus had inherited a gin recepie from family that had lived in India in the 1940's and the rest is history.

Pickering’s 1947 Gin is based on an original Bombay recipe, dating from 17 July 1947. Kept as a family secret for over 66 years, it only resurfaced when they began distilling at Summerhall in Edinburgh.The original recipe gave them a gin full of fragrant spices and fresh citrus fruits – just the way they liked it in the days of the Raj.
