Porter's Gin from Aberdeen is made with juniper, angelica, almond, coriander, liquorice, lemon, orange, buddha’s hand, pink peppercorn, orris root, cassia bark and cinnamon. It's named after Professor Andrew Porter from Aberdeen University who sourced the team's rotary evaporator, used to cold distil some of the more delicate botanicals (including citrus) under vacuum whilst others go into a traditional copper pot still with the help of G&J Distillers. The team includes Ben Iravani of Monkey Bars Aberdeen (with the cold distillation equipment residing in top Aberdeen cocktail bar Orchid in Langstane Place, Aberdeen) and Alex Lawrence from the award-winning DandeLyan.
Refreshing, vibrant, citrusy and light, with a solid juniper backbone. A subtly unique citrus flavour is created by balancing Buddha's Hand with Pink Peppercorns and traditional citrus. The overall gin is incredibly smooth and well balanced, and is therefore versatile in different drinks.
Porter’s Gin was featured in the launch of Little Gin Box in June / July 2016.
