Join us for a Gin Jolly

tripadvisorWe are delighted to welcome guests to Summerhall Distillery, home of Pickering’s Gin, by appointment Thursday- Sunday.

Your Gin Jolly includes a complimentary gin and tonic to start, followed by a visit into our small but perfectly formed distillery. Here you will be guided through the history of gin and how we came to distil, wax, bottle and dispatch every single bottle and bauble from the former small animal kennels of an old Veterinary school.

The Gin Jolly will end with three samples of our core range of gins. Tours last approximately one hour, with 15 minutes of tasting.
