- £22.99Although the pedigree of this gin borders on hipster (it was created at the Ginstitute of Notting Hill's Portobello Star), the taste is as classically British as it gets. Dry and herbal, Portobello Road No. 171 Gin is packed with the traditional botanicals and spices for a crisp, clean taste with a spicy, peppery finish. Sporting a core of juniper berries, complemented with coriander, lemon peel, liquorice, cassia bark, and nutmeg, a twist of grapefruit brings out the unique citrus notes even further, and gives your G&T a proper upgrade.

Alongside the usual floral juniper berry flavour expected in gin is a Japanese favourite, the Sansho berry. These berries are one of the world’s oldest seasonings and have been part of Japanese cuisine for over 3,000 years. Grown wild on the Japanese Alps, they have an aromatic taste of pepper and citrus as well as a flavour enhancing quality.
Infused into this dry gin, the Sansho berries impart a subtle citrus note with an emerging taste of orange pith as the flavours unfold.
Perfect on its own, either with or without a dash of tonic, this is a versatile addition to any cocktail cabinet.
- £27.99Pickering’s 1947 Gin is spiced up with a warming kick of cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, and clove, an interesting edge that comes from the brand’s original 1947 recipe from Mount Mary, Bombay. This otherwise classic gin hearkens a rather romantic note to the last days of the Raj, and made with the traditional list of gin-making botanicals: there’s juniper, coriander, cardamom, fennel, anise, cloves—but they nixed the citrus elements as well as the angelica and beefed up the coriander clove and cinnamon instead. What you’re left with is both clean and refreshing as well as nice and spicy, making Pickering’s 1947 Gin ideal for warming up the colder months. Forget about gin and tonic being a summer drink—break out a bottle of Pickering’s 1947 Gin and let the good times roll, with a distinctively spicy side. You can also make the most of what’s inside by serving up with a bitter lemon mixer or even ginger ale, where the spice of the ginger gives the cinnamon a complementary boost. Tradition just got a warm welcome with Pickering’s 1947 Gin, and a nice bit of history to boot. Learn More
