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.
Pickerings Navy Strength
Beautifully smooth, aromatic, zesty, clean tasting gin – distilled just round the corner from our Edinburgh shop!
In 2014 we became official gin sponsor of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. To mark the occasion we released our Naval Strength edition, also affectionately known as the bearskin gin.
Tasting notes: Bottled at 57.1% ABV, our spirit is smooth, clean and powerful. Initial juniper and aromatic spice flavours lead to a delicious sweetness. Each bottle of gin comes with a bearskin hat and a commemorative necktag.
Recommended serve: its strength and sweetness make for an incredible cocktail gin. (from Pickeringsgin.com)
