The renowned Pumpkin Spice Latte has been made into a gin!
Edinburgh based distillers, Summerhall Distillery, announced the launch of the exciting new flavour as an addition to their handcrafted Pickering’s Gin range. With a unique twist on the ‘hot-drink of the season’ this new product is set to get coffee-lovers buzzing.
Distilled at Summerhall Distillery, Pickering’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Gin is based on the original recipe for Pickering’s 1947 Gin. A classic London dry with a warm and spicy kick – the perfect spirit to warm your cockles this Autumn.
Creating the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte into a well-balanced gin was a project that called for the Pickering’s botanical engineers. Co-Founder and Head Distiller, Matt Gammell comments,
“This was a challenging, but exciting project for us. It was essential we harmonised the unique flavours of Pumpkin Spice with our original gin recipe, which required a lot of experimenting, tasting and perfecting.
In particular, working with coffee was a new direction for us and it was especially interesting when balancing the spices, with the sweetness of the vanilla and the bitterness and bite of the coffee. We hope it’s a product our customers can genuinely enjoy and have fun with.”
Using 13 different botanicals, Pickering’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Gin is a delicate blend of sweet vanilla and cinnamon spice, that leads to a subtle finish of freshly ground coffee.
Pickering’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Gin is available exclusively at pickeringgin.com as a limited-edition product for the Autumn and Winter.
