Proud purveyors of London’s spirit – Portobello Road Gin – have collaborated with legendary rock musician and Dire Straits frontman, Mark Knopfler OBE, to launch a distinctive, special edition ‘rock n roll’ gin this March.

Mark Knopfler – who is a passionate gin fan and former Notting Hill local – worked with Portobello Road Gin’s co-founder, Jake F. Burger to create Local Heroes No.3, which is a bold gin that combines Portobello Road Gin’s nine signature botanicals with lime zest, fresh cucumber peel and olive oil. The unique combination of botanicals results in a robustly ginny profile with strong spice flavour and heat which are quickly tempered by the coolness of cucumber.

The old fashioned is a drink which was traditionally made with American whisky and in the modern era has become the go to drink for showcasing the complexities of many other brown spirits.

A white spirit such as Directors Cut No. 4 gin is perhaps a little more unusual to find in an Old Fashioned style drink. Here we have used a maple syrup to sweeten the drink rather than the more traditional sugar syrup which echoes the caramelised maple and honey parsnip notes found in the gin.

A great one to sip around the fireside after dinner.
