Porter’s Gin is a fusion of old and new. Unbound by conventional methods, the gin was created using a combination of both modern and traditional techniques.
It all started when Professor Andrew Porter of Aberdeen University sourced a rotary evaporator for the creators, the recipe and the name came to life. Using cold distillation allows the extraction of light flavors from delicate botanicals normally damaged by heat. However, some botanicals are better distilled in the classical way, so part of the recipe was developed with the UK’s oldest gin distillery, giving Porter’s Gin a bold juniper backbone.
Porter’s Gin uses 12 botanicals. Each one is ethically sourced and regulated using the SEDEX system for ethical trade. Most are traditional gin botanicals, although Buddha’s hand and pink peppercorn are less common.
NOSE: Elegant and juniper forward, with good earthy depth and fresh citrus top notes enhanced further by fragrant buddha’s hand.
PALATE: Juniper at the heart of proceedings, supported by warming pink pepper, cinnamon and anise with citrus never far away.
FINISH: Clean with lingering sweet nutmeg.
