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.

Tasting Notes

Glass of London Dry Gin

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.

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.

      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.
