Not heard of Pickering's Gin? Well since their launch in 2013, they have become a favourite among gin drinkers like me. 9 botanicals (juniper, coriander, cardamon, angelica, fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves) are infused into their gin and distilled at their Summerhall Distillery. Their creations taste great in your standard gin & tonic combo, or mixed into a cocktail. They have a few sure fire cocktail winners on their website, of which my favourite is the 'Lady Pickering' (the name suits my personality perfectly don't you think?).
You can buy your limited edition Pickering's Gin online on their website, where they also sell other goodies such as gin infused chocolate and candles (no, stop it really, you're killing me here!).
Tours of the Distillery are available Monday to Saturday 12pm-4pm for £10 (that's me sorted for next weekend). Find out more information here.
I couldn't think of a better sponsor for Edinburgh's iconic Military Tattoo then a very worthy locally made gin company.
