Join Pickering’s Gin Co-Founder Matt Gammell in Summerhall Distillery for an abridged insight into the science of creating the perfect Gin & Tonic! Come and experience an in-depth, fast-paced distillery tour with practical demonstrations along the way.

You’ll explore the complex science involved in the distilling process, facts behind base alcohol properties, effects of ABV & flavour, the creation of gin (London Dry Gin vs. other methods) and finally the different flavour-enhancing, and even colour-changing components of tonic.

Matt’s whistle-stop tour will begin with a Pickering’s Gin & Tonic in the Royal Dick Pub, as well as sampling of the Pickering’s Gin range throughout… all in the name of science, naturally!
