In a world first, Edinburgh based Pickering’s Gin, have created a gin that has been specifically developed to be enjoyed at altitude. The gin is available to drink onboard on all short haul flights and through the High Life shop as part of a trio pack.
Distilled at Edinburgh’s Summerhall Distillery, the unique 10-botanical gin celebrates the very best of British flora and fauna – juniper, rose petals and heather- alongside signature Pickering’s botanicals of lime, lemon, cardamom and cinnamon. The resulting spirit is the product of close collaboration, working together to ensure that flavour is maximised in the air, but tastes just as good on the ground.
A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited along to a fabulous press trip in Essex, having a look at some of the vineyards and breweries in the area. It was organised by Visit Essex and a superb day out.
What is Cornish Cup I hear you ask? Well I had no idea either, but as soon as I found out it involved Gin I wanted to try it. So I have been duly sipping away and am here to tell you all about it and what I think of it.
