Portobello Road – Old Tom Gin 70cl Bottle
Portobello Road – Old Tom Gin 70cl Bottle from TheDrinkShop
On the palate. Malty, juniper forward with a hit of citrus. On the nose, cereal, bready, doughy notes with the juniper much less dominant than in the standard Portobello Road 171 Gin.
Portobello Road Old Tom Gin pays homage to what we think gin would’ve been before its transformation took place into the London Dry style we know today.
The distillery take a pot-distilled grain spirit and redistill it with juniper, coriander seed and liquorice root, before adding a little sugar and then ageing in a very old sherry barrel that has previously been used for ageing Scotch whisky. This perfectly
balances the punch of the juniper with the lingering sweetness of the barrel ageing process.
