The taste boffins at Portobello Road Gin have created new summer cocktails that make use of all your garden fare and compliment the gin’s unique set of botanicals.

“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.
