Portobello road Gin is a traditional London Dry Gin made up of 9 botanicals including; Juniper berries, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, coriander seeds, orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, liquorice and nutmeg. Being bottled at 42% gives this Gin enough alcoholic strength to carry and sustain the flavour of the nine botanicals.
Portobello Road Gin was created with reference to antique gins from The Ginstitute’s very own collection and was overseen by a tasting panel of industry experts. The gin itself was distilled by 8th generation London Distiller Mr Charles Maxwell in the traditional London Dry Style while keeping in line with the growing modern gin scene of using mysterious botanicals. The style and way this Gin was born makes it exceptionally versatile, meaning it feels at home in a Martini or Negroni and just as much at home in a Gin and Tonic as well.
The presentation of the gin bottle itself is bartender friendly and the label is reminiscent of the gin of yesterday. Each bottle is individually numbered and signed by the proprietors. Portobello Road gin is handmade and produced in small batches which pays deference to the long standing traditions of London Dry gin.
