Porter's Gin: Tropical Old Tom
Considered well balanced in flavour, this premium Aberdeen gin is cold distilled for a lighter and fresher flavour. With notes of passion fruit, guava and white tea. Great ingredients for a Summer drink.
You can purchase your bottle from Porter's Gin website.
Coming in a very ornate bottle it was created in 2008. It was the first barrel-aged gin to be produced in a century. Aged in five different types of wood barrels for five months! The liquids are then blended together an eight-foot-tall barrel. The taste is zesty, nutty, with a hint of pepper.
Located in Golden Square, Central London, Graphic Bar have collaborated with Plymouth Gin to create a cocktail called "Floral Fizz" that will be available on the day for £6 (with a DrinkUp London digital pass). A refreshing fizz to be enjoyed in the British Summer.
