Forged from Ice & Fire!
12 April 2019

Game of Thrones is back (finally!) and we’re ever so excited here at 186 Portobello Road. Us ‘Gin Maesters’ (sorry) have spent The Winter creating a range of Game of Thrones-inspired drinks that even Robert Baratheon would be proud of and will have you drinking like a Khaleesi at your home-viewing party.

Each cocktail is prepared with ingredients straight from a Tyrell’s potions cabinet and served in vessels fit for the true Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, whoever they might be.
