Product information

Inspired by the lesser known gin styles of the past, Celebrated Butter Gin joins the Portobello Road Gin family.

In Sketches by Boz, Charles Darwin eloquently describes the products on offer in a typical London Gin Palace of the

1830s, including the Celebrated Butter Gin among other, equally inviting and wholesome drinks.

 

Distilled in tiny batches on our thirty-litre copper pot still, Copernicus IV at The Distillery on Portobello Road. Each batch of our traditional London Dry is distilled one additional time with a block of unsalted English butter in the still, resulting in a subtle buttery taste and a velvety smooth feel.

 

Noticeably more viscous than the classic Portobello Road London Dry, on the nose all the Portobello Road elements are there; juniper integrated with citrus and spice and a gentle clean, floral note unpins everything. On the palate it seems weightier and perhaps a tad sweeter. The juniper and coriander seed is amplified, with delicate floral and spice notes present but subtle. The finish is long, the spiciness expected from Portobello Road is more subdued and instead the juniper persists, lingering in a long, pleasant manner.

 

Portobello Celebrated Butter Gin is like meeting your friends twin when you didn¿t know they had one, catching you unawares, befuddling ones expectations in a thoroughly welcome turn.

Really unpleasant

Overpowering smells of rancid butter and tastes even worse. Will experiment with tonics to see if any make it drinkable but I suspect that will just mean wasting tonics as well as the gin.

Nice buttery flavour

This is a different gin to what I would usually drink. It has quite a unique flavour with a strong buttery flavour and I found it rather strong. I preferred it on its own rather then with tonic water. Nice but not sure I would choose it over the fruit gins.

Lovely

I was sent this to review it has a very smooth taste, however like others I think it is a little expensive.

Makes a nice gift

I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado. Not sure I can taste the butter to be honest, although I think it is a bit smoother than normal gin. Have tried it with tonic & lemon and tonic & cucumber and it seems to work much better with the cucumber. Not sure I'd buy again for myself at this price, but would make a nice gift.

Nice in cocktails

I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado and was pleasantly surprised by how smooth it taste. Used it in a few cocktails and stands out well - in particular with passion fruit. Would buy if on offer.
