Pickering Gin Tour
I can thoroughly recommend you pay them a visit. The tour starts with a big gin & tonic to get you in the mood and then a look around where they produce the gin. They have an amazing set up and I couldn't believe the amount of drinks they produce in the space they have. Matthew Gammell has a background in engineering and is responsible for transforming the old hospital into a working distillery.
I don't want to give too much away, but the gin is based on an Indian recipe from 1947 that was gifted to them. They now produce a range of flavours and various strengths, which you get wee tasters of on the tour.
It is a really smooth gin. The whisky oak cask gins come in a range of flavours and they can be drunk with just a cube of ice - delicious.
So a good place to visit on a rainy afternoon in Scotland - check their website for details of the tours
