Pickering's is Edinburgh's first gin distillery for over 150 years, they've been a long time coming but we think they're worth the wait!
This limited edition Pickering's sees selected batches of gin aged in oak casks from Scotland's most iconic whisky regions.
A sublime taste that begins like gin on the palate but finishes like whisky.
Highly collectable yet highly drinkable.
What a dilemma!
Batch 1 consisting of only 200 35cl bottles.
The whisky distilleries from this region – Orkney, Skye, Mull, Arran and Jura – often share a salty, maritime character.
Aroma: Mellow, with faint notes of light toffee, vanilla and dried peat. With water it’s slightly maritime, on a base of moss and dry peat.
Taste: Here the mouthfeel is drier. Slightly salty with a subtle smoky dimension. Chlli-pepper in the aftertaste that complements the fresh juniper notes. With a touch more water, the cask adds a base note of faint smoke, with a touch of vanilla. The maritime flavours return, and the aftertaste has a trace of peat smoke.
