Gin dare we say Gin brings the world today. Okay perhaps Gin did win any world wars, nor has it been used in any acts of diplomacy- to the best of our knowledge but neither the less, gin is universally loved. We have become a little enthralled with how Gin drinking differs around the world. Let us set the scene, it was a Saturday afternoon, and we were enjoying a drink with friends, some friends from the states, some from Europe and beyond and it got us to thinking, is Gin culture as varied as the drink itself? So we embarked on a journey of discovery, doing what we do best at ILoveGin.com- We talked gin with the best gin bars around the world!
A Gin Tour Of The UK- The UK’s Finest & Secret Gin-erys
We are a nation of classy and innovative Gin drinkers and the UK is dotted with some global quality bars that specialise in that thing we hold so dear. . . Gin! After a tipple or 2, we thought to ourselves, I wonder how many secret Gin-erys there are around the UK, I mean some bars wish to remain secret but just like a terrible tabloid journalist in an ol’ timey news office, “We are busting this story wide open” and bringing some of the UK’s best kept secrets to you fine people. No doubt you have a favourite spot to visit in your local area but we thought, why not make our way around the UK.
Ahoy there gin fans! Portobello Road have added a fabulous new addition to their ginventory – a whopping 57.1% Navy Strength gin!
The Navy Strength is a new and punchier expression of Portobello Road’s original 171 gin, staying true to its flavour profile and core botanicals. At the end of the distillation process, a taste of the sea is injected when a small amount of English sea salt is incorporated into the gin – a very nice nod to the history of this gin variation.
But where does the term ‘Navy Strength’ come from? Well thanks to a lesson by Ginstitute owner and Portobello Road mastermind Jake Burger … I can tell you!
