Portobello Road Gin Director’s Cut No.02
Portobello Road // England
This is the second installment of the Director's Cut series from Portabello Road Gin. It features juniper berries that have been smoked in peat sourced from County Kerry, Ireland. Master Distiller Jake Burger began with a neutral grain spirit, and over the course of 4 days from September 2 to 5 (the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London), distilled 1,000 bottles of this chipotle-smoked gin. A total of 11 botanicals, including chipotle and Lapsang Souchong, were utilized in the blend.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
