In our Access All Areas series we lift the lid on what you don’t normally get to see at your favourite shops, venues and restaurants.
Recently we were invited behind the scenes at Pickering’s Gin distillery (based at Edinburgh’s Summerhall) to see exactly where and how the magic happens.
Founded by two friends in 2013 in a former Edinburgh veterinary hospital and training facility, Pickering’s Gin distillery now exports around the world and their reach is constantly growing.
Co-founder Matthew Gammell showed us around the distillery and explained a little about the history of Pickering’s, from their 68 year old gin recipe to the company’s plans for future exporting. Watch the video below to learn how your favourite tipple gets from botanicals to bottles straight from the source.
