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 has an impressive set of credentials. The brand was created by the founders of The Ginstitute. Once just a museum, now one of the world’s premier gin educational attractions— naturally, they needed to have a gin.
While they now operate out of their own building at 186 Portobello Road, Portobello Road No. 171 Gin is an homage to the Portobello Star (address 171 Portobello Road) where The Ginstitute first operated out of in the early 2010’s.
The gin itself is designed in the London Dry Style. It features nine botanicals distilled on a base of wheat. The brand launched in 2011.
Aroma: Herbaceous, green juniper. Very subtle, hints of meadow and grass underneath.
Flavor: Portobello Road No. 171 Gin is deceptively more spice-forward once sipped. Warming to the palate, nutmeg is surprisingly loud in the mix. Coriander, cassia and juniper on the mid palate lead into a rooty, earthy back half.
Licorice root adds a creamy unctuousness while bitter oranges adds length towards the end.
Finish: Creamy and rich with bitter orange, eggy custard facets and a moderate amount of warmth.
