The Pickering's gin baubles, which were launched in 2014, sold out in record time in 2016 and crashed the Pickering's website.

Each contain a 50ml measure of gin inside different coloured baubles that are ideal for hanging on the tree.

At the time of their launch Marcus Pickering, co-founder of the company, said that the Christmas-themed gin gifts started off “as a bit of fun for a Christmas fair” but the distillery then found that customers went “absolutely wild for them”.

He added that the brand sold hundreds of the baubles in minutes and so decided it must be an idea “worth continuing”.

After such high demand, the distillery stepped up production and have since added festive flavoured gins to the baubles, including their controversial Brussels sprouts gin.

When do the 2021 Pickering's Gin baubles go on sale?

According to the Pickering's team, fans of the famous baubles can order theirs for this year from Monday 18 October.

Each box comes with six gin filled colourful baubles, and they'll be available on the Pickering's website as well as John Lewis, selected Scottish Sainsbury's stores and in a number of independent bottle shops.

Pickering’s Gin history

Co-founded by Marcus Pickering and Matt Gammell in 2013, Pickering’s Gin is based on an original Bombay recipe dating from 1947.

Distilled, bottled, labelled and waxed from the former kennels of Edinburgh’s old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School, the building now houses Summerhall, an independent arts village.

Their distillery was the first to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years.
