Thirsty gin fans will arrive at Summerhall, one of Europe’s biggest independent arts centres & formerly the vet school for the University of Edinburgh. Sunday mornings deserve a liquid breakfast, so I’ll present you with a tall, refreshing pick-me-up in the form of a Red Snapper cocktail a.k.a. the better Bloody Mary. With a liquid reviver in hand, I'll escort you to Summerhall Distillery, home of Pickering’s Gin. There, I'll introduce you to the curvaceous delights of our copper pot stills, Gertrude and Emily. I'll guide you through the history of gin, and how it came to be made at Summerhall. At Pickering’s Gin, we fill, cork, label, and wax our gins by hand, so you’ll get to understand how a genuine craft distillery manages to produce gin enough to fulfill global demand. All of our gins are based on an original Bombay gin recipe, written down in 1947. I'll guide you through the subtle tweaks and botanical changes we made to our core range of gins, with a fully guided tasting. Then, onwards to the Royal Dick Pub for a Pickering’s G&T straight from the gin tap, piped in directly from our little distillery.
Il tuo host
I've been working for Pickering's Gin since July 2017, after graduating with a history degree from the University of Edinburgh. Combining my love of history and gin means that you'll get plenty of gin-formation during your time with me. Despite having lived all over the world, I would consider myself an Edinburgh local. I can't wait to share with you some of the wonderful secrets Edinburgh has to offer, and, of course, give you some gin.

Dove ti troverai
We are proud to be part of the cultural arts village that is Summerhall. 150 independent businesses run out of this site, formerly the University of Edinburgh’s veterinary school. Be sure to check out any of the current exhibitions. Of course, you will see our distillery—formerly the animal kennels—and then the brilliant Royal Dick Pub, which was the old surgery where Edinburgh locals used to get their pets fixed up.
