This gin was created by Leeds bartending legend Jake Burger (anyone been to Jakes bar on Call Lane?) by the award-wining Notting Hill bar, Portobello Star, home of the Ginsitute. This is a place where one can learn an awful lot about gin, so you would expect Portobello Road No. 171 to be rather good, and indeed it is. It is an old-style London Dry Gin, containing traditional botanicals and spices that harks back to the gins of yesteryear.

Due to the demand Portobello Road is now produced in a still named 'Tom Thumb' by Charles Maxwell at the Thames distillery.

This Old Tom Gin pays homage to what Portobello think gin would've been before its transformation took place. Jake Burger has tried more old styles of gin than almost anybody else in the world so you’d think he’d know a thing or two! They 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. It perfectly balances the punch of the juniper with the lingering sweetness of the barrel ageing process. Because they do not use a neutral spirit, this cannot be legally called a gin.
