Award-winning artisan gin, Portobello Road Gin, is to expand its range of core products with the launch of a navy strength gin made with English sea salt.
Portobello Road Gin Navy Strength has been crafted by the award-winning distiller and renowned gin historian, Jake F Burger and is available for both on and off-trade from July.
The nautical expression is a mightier and more flavourful variation on Portobello Road Gin’s original 171 London Dry Gin, which launched in 2011 and has become a firm favourite with bartenders, connoisseurs and gin-fans across the world. Bottled at a punchy 57.1% ABV, it is distilled with English-grown wheat and the Portobello Road Gin’s signature recipe of nine time honoured botanicals. English sea salt is added at the end of the distillation process resulting in a subtle yet distinct flavour.
To coincide with the launch, Jake F Burger has created a series of signature cocktails inspired by navy drinking traditions and nautical fables which will be available in top bars across the UK. Portobello Road Gin will donate a percentage of proceeds from the signature cocktail sales to ocean welfare charities, as well as proportion of proceeds of online sales of bottles of navy strength from the Portobello Road Gin and The Distillery website.
