Where can I go gin tasting in Edinburgh?

Head down to Summerhall in the heart of Edinburgh to take a tour of this great distillery, and of course, taste gin! Pickering's Gin is located just a mile out from Waverley station in the city centre.

The UK has had a booming craft beer recently and Edinburgh is no exception – in the heart of Scotland’s capital lies the city’s first exclusive Gin distillery in over 150 years. Matt and Marcus, the two founders of Pickering’s gin, base their bitter-sweet balanced Gin on an original 1947 recipe, handwritten in Bombay, India as a family secret and finally handed down to them 66 years later. The distillery is located in Summerhall, a lovely venue in Edinburgh that is host to regular festivals and has a great café and pub. The tour can be a great starting event if you want to have a great night out in Edinburgh!

  • The tour costs £15 per person, including gin sampling.
  • The tour lasts approximately 1 hour.
  • The tour is currently running from Thursday to Sunday.
  • If booking for a group larger than 8 people, please contact the team in advance.
