Summerhall Distillery is the first gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Based on an original Bombay recipe, kept secret since 1947, the key to the gin’s smoothness is the custom-designed bain-marie heating system. This provides a gentle but thorough heat to the still which means the botanicals simmer long enough coax out their subtle, soft flavours. The Pickering's team has also created a marriage between two of Scotland's favourite spirits - gin and whisky - by ageing its gin in single malt whisky casks from five of Scotland's distinct whisky regions: Islay; Speyside; the Lowlands; the Highlands; and the Islands. The oak ageing process lasted between three and six months for each expression and each cask yields just 200 35cl bottles.
