Pickering’s ‘Bearskin’ Navy Strength Gin
Pickering’s 1947 Gin was engineered using an original recipe first written down in 1947 in Bombay and because of that, it uses 9 original fragrant spices as they would have used during the days of the Raj. Modern times called for a slightly softer, smoother style of gin so Matt Gammell engineered a bain-marie heating system which really is the secret to their gin’s perfect balance. The core botanicals are cardamom, anise, fennel, citrus, cinnamon and cloves and as it packs a punch being bottled at 57.1%, the higher ABV really brings out the sweetness in the cardamom, anise and fennel. The Pickering’s Navy Strength also goes by the name of “Bearskin Gin” due to becoming the official gin of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
