Can you imagine lazing on a summer’s afternoon without your Pimm’s in hand? We think not so let’s raise a toast to Pimm’s No 1 the classic English summer drink. Traditionally served 3:1 with freshly made lemonade, cucumber, mint and strawberries, Pimm’s has a rich and fruity taste which simply screams summer. English through and through Pimm’s No 1 was invented in the City of London and spicy undertones lift the naturally fruitiness even further.
Named for its place of conception, Portobello London Dry Gin No. 171 is a classic London gin with all the characteristics of a premium product. Floral notes pour out of the bottle on opening with lavender and camphor at the forefront. Parma violet sweetness follows and on tasting you’ll get the first hint of juniper. The citrus notes often found in abundance in other gins are subdued but their essence is in the background and it’s a little spicier than your average gin, without being overwhelming. Wonderful for your favourite sling.
