Back by popular demand, co-founder of Pickering's Gin, Matthew Gammell paid a visit to the Murray Beith Murray office and shared with our colleagues and guests the history of gin and the story behind the brand. Armed with a lot of tonic and ginger ale, guests sipped their way through three different variants of gin while being walked through the different flavours. Thank you to all who helped make the night success and to our guests for the lovely feedback. See more photos on our Facebook page

“Just a quick email to say how much I enjoyed the gin tasting event yesterday. Thank you to your team for organising such a great event – although it has probably left me with too much of a liking for gin and ginger ale!” – guest, Chiene + Tait

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the gin tasting evening last night. This was my first opportunity to taste Pickerings gin and it certainly won’t be my last. I enjoyed meeting Matt and Paul as well as a number of your colleagues and I pleasantly surprised myself by not diverting to the pub on the way home!!” - guest, Standard Life Wealth
