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 their use of lemon, bitter orange and coriander, which then develops into a sweet peppery finish, which is achieved by the use of liquorice and nutmeg.
Bottled at 42% Portobello Road Gin has enough alcoholic strength to carry and sustain the flavours of the nine botanicals - juniper berries, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, coriander seeds, orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, liquorice and nutmeg.
Distilled by 8th generation London Distiller Mr Charles Maxwell Portobello Road Gin is a traditionally styled London Dry Gin which eschews the modern trend for ever more esoteric botanicals, a big hit of Juniper is followed by a burst of citrus from the lemon and bitter orange and then a sweet note from the liquorice and the cassia bark which slowly builds to a long peppery finish from the nutmeg.
