Pickering’s gin is based on an original Bombay recipe, handwritten on a fragment of paper dated 17 July 1947. The recipe has now been fine-tuned, perfecting it's balance of botanicals and tweaking it to the contemporary palate. The result is a spectacularly smooth, refreshing and flavoursome gin. The secret of the gin’s smoothness is Gert’s ingenious, custom-designed bain marie heating system. This provides a gentle all-over-heat to the still. Thus the botanicals enjoy a luxurious simmer that coaxes out their subtle, soft, highly drinkable flavours.
Classic London dry in style, with the juniper and citrus flavours to the fore. Followed by an element of sweetness from the fennel and anise finished with a peppery spice that is unchanged from 1947 when the recipe was written in Bombay.
Juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica, fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves

Pickering’s is so smooth you can actually have a shot of it neat. But it also makes a cracking G&T with a wedge of pink grapefruit.
Clean fresh pine derived from the juniper, with citrus notes.
Strongly aromatic in the mouth. There are hints of liquorice and cinnamon, slightly nutty notes and a sweet lavender-like softness.
Refreshingly crisp and dry. Ready for another?
