Gin 70cl / 42%
From Edinburgh's first distillery in over 150 years we have Pickering's original 1947 gin from the Summerhall Distillery.
Made exactly to the original recipe that was written down in Mount Mary, Bombay in 1947.
This gin ticks all the boxes for an old original recipe - it is spicy, sweet and intense, it's a decadent trip back to the last days of Raj. Cardamom, coriander, clove and cinnamon spice lead to a crisp, refreshing and long finish.
The Perfect Serve
Ice, tonic and a slice of orange.
For a more warming drink, substitute tonic water for ginger ale.
Created by Amy Elizabeth Watson of Gallery 48 in Dundee, this cocktail celebrates marmalade - one of her home city's greatest exports.
• 50ml Pickering’s 1947 Gin • 2 tsp Dundee marmalade • 1 orange, cut into quarters • Cubed ice
• Rosemary sprig to garnish
Add marmalade and juice from 3 orange wedges straight into a jar.
Close with the jar lid and shake hard so that the marmalade covers the interior surface of the jar.
Remove lid, add Pickering’s 1947 Gin with lots of ice (about 3/4 full) add the lid and reshake.
Squeeze in the final orange wedge to taste and garnish with rosemary sprig picked fresh from the garden.
Get comfy in the garden; relax and sip.
