ORIGIN: London, England
PRODUCT: Portobello Road Gin
Hailing from their address, nestled away on the top two floors of a 19th Century public house on London's world famous Portobello Road they opened a tiny Still Room named The Ginstitute: London's second-smallest museum and home to our 30l alembic still Copernicus the Second. It is here they planned to demystify distilling and give people the chance to make their own gin. It was here, whilst putting together The Ginstitute that Ged, Jake and Paul decided that if they were going to provide this experience it really wouldn't be complete without a gin which could call the Ginstitute home. In the nine months of experimentation that followed, the character of the gin was slowly created - a little more of this, a little less of that, this one makes a nice Martini, that one makes a nice Negroni, well, you get the picture. Slowly but surely something we could be proud of emerged. Thus Portobello Road No. 171 Gin was born.
