We’ve put together a series of cocktails for Moderation Month – our alternative to dry January – using Portobello Road Temperance Spirit. With all the different resolutions and changes taken on in January, we’re doing something that we can actually take through the rest of the year and turn in to consistent habits when it comes to drinking, whether that be a moderation month, week or day. Turning ‘temptation’ in to ‘temperance’ the range of drinks are perfect for a mid-week pick me up or a cheers to the weekend and are all easy to make at home as well as being available at The Distillery, 186 Portobello Road.

From fashion to food and drink to travel – trends are often led by popular culture, whether that be film, TV or music and gin is no exception. Having enjoyed a resurgence in popularity and shaking off it’s ‘granny’s tipple’, mothers ruin tarnish, gin may not always have been glam as it is now, but it has always played a part in popular culture.

We’ve put together a rundown of gin in film and TV with a few ways to ‘ginspire’ you:

Mad Men

Set in the 1960s when vodka was in ascendance, the ladies and gentlemen of Mad Men are pretty much partial to any liquor, at any time of day. The New York based series centres around an advertising agency and is a showcase of classic drinks, featuring old fashioned gin favourites such as the Gimlet and the Tom Collins. The show had a significant impact on the drinks industry upon its airing, with Bartenders (especially in New York) noticing a rise in demand for previously less popular, ‘passé’ cocktails.
