Portobello Road Sloe & Blackcurrant Gin is based on a botanically intense version of their classic London Dry Gin infused with sloe berries from Burgundy, and blended with French blackcurrant liqueur, Italian cherry liqueur, and a touch of sugar.
The blend is rested in ex-whiskey barrels at The Distillery, on London's iconic Portobello Road.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 23/02/2020
Clear, burgundy red.
Piney sloe berry with delicate blackcurrant jam.
Tart sloe berry softened by hints of rich cassis-like blackcurrant. Piney juniper gin notes fortify with cleansing peppery spice.
Piney and peppery sloe berry with lingering lightly spiced cassis with an almost mity freshness.
Perfectly balanced and very quaffable, be that neat from a hip flask, on-the-rocks, or in a sloe gin cocktail. Rich but not overly sweet with layers of tart berry fruit, spice, jammy richness, and piney gin.
