Waterhead Gin of the Month – Pickering’s gin

Waterhead has an impressive Gin Library of over 40 gins and each month we feature one as our Gin of the Month. This month it is the turn of Pickering’s.

Pickering’s gin comes from the first gin distillery to be based in Edinburgh for over 150 years and was launched in March 2014. The Summerhall Distillery is housed on the site which used to be an old animal hospital. Part of the veterinary school, known locally as the Dick Vet, is now an arts venue called Summerhall. A pub on the Summerhall site, the Royal Dick, enjoys Pickering’s gin piped straight to tap from Pickering’s distillery just next door. It is here that they also produce the small batches of handcrafted gin which we know as Pickering’s.
