“When we came up with the concept of these cocktails we wanted to create a delicious set of drinks that showcased the botanicals of the gin and that Portobello Road Gin drinkers can re-create from comfort of their own back garden. The nine botanicals in our gin produce a nice depth of flavour so Portobello Road Gin really has the strength of character to stand up to other strong tastes – its flavour profile gives us a great opportunity to be a little moredaringwith our drink ingredients.
