Porters Gin 41.5% ABV
Updated: Jun 24
What happened when three friends got together and decided to create a gin could be classed as the best of the best? That could be drank straight or with a tonic? They were on a mission to do just that. They created Porter Gin, a juniper heavy gin with light citrus notes that is just to die for.
Porters gin is all the way from Aberdeen, Scotland... The land of awesome gins it seems.
The trio (Josh, Ben and Alex) who came up with this beautiful gin using traditional Copper pot-stills and modern vacuum distillation. It was Professor Andrew Porter from University of Aberdeen who helped them get their hands on the rotary evaporator and they went onto name their beautiful creation after him.
What makes Porters gin so beautiful? 12 botanicals go into this gin. Sourced ethically from all over the world. Juniper, Coriander, Orris Root, Angelica, Almonds, Cassia, Lemon peel, orange peel, cinnamon, licorice, pink pepper and Buddhas Hand. While most of these botanicals go into most gins, Pink Pepper and Buddhas Hand are not so common. Its the Buddhas Hand adds a unique citrus flavor and the Pink Pepper brings out the citrus notes while adding a soft spice finish.
The bottle of this gin is simple and sleek. The label has an illustration of Buddhas Hand and Juniper berries in a flask. The triangle symbolises three friends creating Porter Gin.
