LONDON | Portobello Star in Notting Hill has been a great bar for lovers of gin ever since opening it’s doors in 2008. Owner Jake Burger (Jack’s Bar, Leeds) not only created a fantastic gin bar, but also used the premises as the home for his own brand of gin, Portobello Road Gin. The bar is home to one of the best gin lists in the UK, which can be enjoyed neat, or in one of the many brilliant cocktails on offer in the beautifully designed, old fashioned drink menus. Speaking of the menu, it contains witty and often humorous descriptions of all of the drinks and is well worth reading in its own right.

You can order whatever you fancy of course, but one shouldn’t visit here without trying the house gin. Portobello Road Gin contains nine botanicals and is best served with ice, tonic water, and a twist of grapefruit. It’s a light, floral, refreshing gin that’s beautifully balanced and not too overpowering. If it’s a cocktail that you’re after, try a favourite of ours, the Apple & Pears Gin & Tonic – Portobello Road Gin with tonic, slices of English pear and Russet apples, and six to seven juniper berries.

If this wasn’t enough, Burger opened the ‘Ginstitute’ at the bar in 2011. The Ginstitute is located upstairs from the main bar and is one of London’s smallest museums. It’s a small recreation of a Victorian gin palace and is devoted to gin, with exhibits including a vintage copper still, Prohibition-era gin bottles, vintage advertisements, and antique cocktail books. At the Ginsitute, visitors can learn about the history, the botanicals used to flavour gin, and create their own blend to take away in a personally signed bottle.
