Pickering's Gin holds a record amongst the Gins we stock - it took the longest to go from invention to shop shelves! The recipe is based on a Bombay recipe dating back to 1947, and was kept a closely guarded family secret for over 66 years! A special heating system was designed to draw out only the best from the copper distillation, which lead to a Gin with perfect balance. Hats off to them!
Anyway, history lesson over - what does it taste like? Opening this shapely bottle immediately nets you the scent of juniper, obviously a staple in Gin, but you can also pick up on the various spices and herbs that prove its Indian origin.
Pouring out a generous measure you can immediately taste juniper again, joined this time by a supporting cast of citrus and a subtle taste of nuts. It warmed me up and almost made me skip, likely an effect of the various botanicals used in the distillation process. The aftertaste was similar to the initial taste - absolutely nothing to be upset about in this case - with a refreshing herbal effect that left me wanting more; so much more that I had another.
Overall, if you're looking for a full flavoured and herby beverage to spice up your life, I can certainly recommend this one. (Plus it's made by a still called Gert!)
