Full description

Learn all there is to know about gin and its unique distillation process on a Pickering's Gin Distillery tour at Summerhall in Edinburgh. Kick-start your tour with a delicious gin and tonic poured in style at the Royal Dick Bar, where you meet your guide

For the first part of the tour, head over to the Old Workshop and sit back comfortably in a chair, sipping on your gin and tonic. Hear about the many gin inventions that were born here and the story of the distillery.

Then, make your way to the distillery. Meet and greet the distillers at work and possibly see Gertrude and Emily — the two stills – in steaming action.

To finish the tour in style, be walked through a tasting of four award-winning gin samples in the next room, where you can share your thoughts and feelings about your favorite drink with the group.

Head home with a complimentary miniature bottle of your favorite sample after the tasting.

We’ve done this tour once before 5 years ago. We had just as good a time if not better experiencing it again! Jamie was our tour guide and he was both delightful and knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend doing this to anyone! Especially if you enjoy gin! You get to try a variety of their products!
