Spirit of the Month: June 2018
We choose our Spirit of the Month to highlight some of the greatest spirits in the world. Some of them are age-old classics, some of them are great new releases, but whatever it is, you can be sure that it's something we love. This month we've chosen:
Portobello Road No.171
London Dry Gin
Portobello Road Gin was created by the team behind historic west London bar Portobello Star, and concentrates on nine classic gin botanicals, including juniper, lemon peel, nutmeg and liquorice root. The result is a full-flavoured London Dry gin with great balance between citrus fruit and spice, making it a versatile spirit that's equally at home in long drinks and cocktails.
From the producer
- On the front of the palate, Portobello Road Gin has a generous slug of juniper, the mid-palate has a sustained, fresh citrus character from our use of lemon, bitter orange and coriander, which then develops into a sweet peppery finish, achieved by the use of liquorice and nutmeg.
Portobello Road Gin was designed by top mixologist Jake Burger and his team at Notting Hill's famous Portobello Star bar. The gin is made a few doors down at The Distillery, a four-floor Mecca to gin, which is also home to a bar, The Ginstitute, a gin 'school' that lets people create their own gins to take home, and accommodation.

Brilliant smooth drink
My 'go-to' gin. Makes for a very classic G&T (excellent with a twist of grapefruit, as suggested by the distiller, or lemon) or a wonderful Negroni.
Delicious classic London Dry Gin. Extremely good for the price point.
Amazing stuff, y all time favourite!!

An excellent newcomer and probably one of the best within it's price range.
