Pickering's Gin Baubles are Back!

05 October 2017

A must for all gin fans across the country - the most wanted Christmas tree decoration is back on sale. After huge demand from customers all around the world last year, Pickering’s Gin has harvested a bumper crop of their award-winning baubles for 2017.

To keep up with the demand for the coveted decoration the Pickering’s Gin team has expanded from nine to fifteen full time staff and hired an additional 19 elves part-time. Workingaround the clock, the team have been filling the 20K baubles needed a day to fulfill orders. 

The Edinburgh distillery made headlines after 30,000 of their gin-filled Christmas baubles sold out in 82 seconds in 2016.

This year Pickering’s Gin - based in the heart of Edinburgh – started production of their Pickering’s Gin Baubles in January to meet demand, but is expected to, once again, sell out fast.

A pre-order of the Christmas baubles this year to its #Ginfriends mailing list saw the distiller sell 10% of their stock in July, highlighting the extraordinary call for an innovative twist to Christmas tree decorating.

Over the past year the team at Pickering’s Gin have been working back-to-back shifts to meet the huge demand from around the world. The baubles have been carefully cultivated and are now ripe and ready for customers near and far.

Each colourful bauble is filled with a jolly 50ml serving of Pickering’s gin, making it a perfect gift for the festive season.

Pickering’s Gin Baubles are retailed in a gift pack containing six differently coloured plastic baubles (RRP: £30.00). The baubles will be available online at and 200+ outlets around the UK.

Being the original gin bauble, the small craft distiller expects to sell out once again this year and urges people to get in fast to avoid any disappointment.
