For our version of the Martini we have replaced the traditional dry vermouth with the little know but delicious French fortified wine Pineau de Charentes, which tastes kind of like a combination of dessert wine and Cognac. Keep it in the fridge, you only need a little bit to make this drink, so you can enjoy a glass of it on its own, before lunch or after dinner… maybe alongside the cheese board!

Martini style cocktails are the drinks where one can really appreciate the intricacies of a gin. This one is a little sweeter than a traditional Martini but the sweetness is somewhat tempered by the drinks icy coldness. We wrap together a strip of parsnip and a twist of lemon peel and pin it with a cocktail stick for an elegant garnish which compliments the flavour of the drink.

In crafting our signature serves our purpose is simple, to deliver the most elegant and refined flavour profiles imaginable. Embracing the unique characteristics of Portobello Road gin, from fresh fruit notes to rich mellow tones, we’ve created serves for every palate.

Sweet and sumptuous, like a deluxe after dinner dessert, Alexander The Great is a luxurious serve that gently compliments the liquorice root and nutmeg of the gin. Combing rich chocolatey notes with a syrupy smooth mouthfeel this resplendent sipper warms the heart and treats the tastebuds.

We often think of a Gin and Tonic as a summertime drink but the Christmas time flavours of Directors Cut No. 4 lend themselves very well to tonic water. For this one we have paired it with Fever Tree’s Ltd Edition Clementine Tonic which is available in good grocers throughout the festive season. A Christmas Gin with a Christmas tonic! Perfect.

We compliment the parsnip flavours in the gin with a strip of raw parsnip and add a touch of Christmas colour with a merry sprinkling of red-currants.

This drink is our Directors Cut No.4 version of the classic American Prohibition era Bee’s Knees Cocktail which sprang from the speakeasies of the United States in the 1920’s.

It is, contrary to popular opinion, actually one of a very few cocktails which survive from this era. Most of the classic cocktails we enjoy today were actually created long before prohibition started. Bee’s Knees was a popular slang term in the day which meant “The best!”

Forgive the terrible pun in the name, this is our take on that Sex in the City favourite The Cosmopolitan, but inspired not by the combination of citrus vodka and lime which dominate the original but instead by some of the flavours on your Christmas Dinner plate, namely parsnip and cranberry sauce.

The sweetness of our Directors Cut No.4 gin and the cranberry jelly tame the zest and sharpness of fresh lime juice. The whole comes out a vibrant plum colour and is a delicious drink to serve to your guest before Christmas dinner commences.

In crafting our signature serves we seek out only premium ingredients, spirits and mixers that compliment and showcase Portobello Road gin’s exquisite mix of 9 time honoured botanicals.

Blue Pea Spritz is a classic aromatic, effervescent serve perfectly suited as an early evening aperitif. An intriguing blend combing bitter herbs and citrus flavours, this drink has both kick and complexity. Named after the delicate flower that gives off such a vibrant colour we recommend a garnish of cucumber and edible petals to create a showstopping sipper.
