NEWS: Pickerings Gin Jollies

If you are planning to be in Edinburgh during the Fringe this year (or maybe you will be after reading this!) then why not looking into attending one of the Pickerings Gin Jollies

Their distillery is situated in the bustling Arts Venue, Summerhall. During August, Summerhall transforms into a Fringe Super-venue home to a host of creative, groundbreaking and award-winning shows.

Pickerings will be running three distillery tours daily (excluding Tuesday) at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm, showing how their award-winning gin is made.

The tour starts in the Summerhall Courtyard before you become acquainted with their stills, Gert and Emily (depending upon the tour date & time, you might be lucky enough to see them in action.

You will also get to sample their full range gin just metres from where they were distilled (provenance doesn't get much closer!) before enjoying a complementary Pickering’s and Tonic outside at the Airstream Cocktail Bar.

Tickets are priced at £10 each and must be booked directly through the Edinburgh Fringe website. They run from Wednesday 2nd August until Sunday 27th August. Please heed the notice on the website: "Warnings: Tour contains tasters of alcohol" 😉

You might also be lucky enough to see the classic Pickering's Gin delivery van

I personally attended last year during the Fringe and thoroughly enjoyed it so this tour comes with a personal Ginstagram recommendation!
