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.
