Portobello Road No. 171 Bottling Note

This gin was released by the award-winning Notting Hill bar, Portobello Star, home of the Ginsitute. This is a place where one can learn an awful lot about gin, so you would expect Portobello Road No. 171 to be rather good, and indeed it is. It's an old-style London Dry Gin, containing traditional botanicals and spices, that harks back to the gins of yesteryear.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Hot white pepper and heavy berries with plenty of juniper.

Palate: Well-integrated spice, again with a healthy dose of juniper. Soft lemon grass flavours with a hint of red berries.

Finish: Dry, fresh and cleansing citrus.

Overall: An excellent, no-nonsense gin that deserves to be a back bar staple.

Portobello Road No. 171 Gin Reviews

Perfect gin for the house

Love having this gin in the house - makes the perfect gin and tonic!

7th October 2020

Good all rounder

One of my go-to London Dry gins. Does what is says on the tin. Lovely with tonic and pretty much any citrus. No, it’s not especially exciting, but it’s outstanding for the price.

One of my five a day

Versatile Gin - try it over ice with Mediterranean Tonic and a slice of fresh orange - love it 😊

Definitely a new favourite

A great Gin if you enjoy a nice crisp clean gin, I love it!

Dont think it will become my favourite gin,

Very easy on the palate. Taste of botanicals. Not too strong or bitter a taste.

Average gin with no added taste or suprises.

Another average Gin with a postcode to sell it.
Absolutely ordinary gin with another trendy label. The taste of this gin is almost exactly the same as some supermarket own brand gins. I like gin and can find nothing out of the ordinary with the taste. Based on its taste alone its just your basic gin, a good mixer masks its actually average taste.

Had a double with soda on the rocks and a couple slices of lime at The Humble Grape in Bride's Passage. Very nice.

Top stuff

Great on its own or made a lovely Gin and Tonic. I used a twist of grapefruit as described on the website. Very good.

Better than Beefeaters

Outstanding gin

14th February 2017


Quite disappointing... tried directly after an Adnams Copper House and it just fell flat on its face!

6th January 2017

I do like gin sometimes

I don't like gin, but I love this with pink grapefruit

This is the first gin I bought for myself last year after becoming a gin drinker one fab weekend in London!Discovered it at Stylist show. ha Love it.Perfect first buy.

Far Better Gins Out There

I was not too impressed. They dub it an "old school gin" which makes sense because "old school gins" tasted like rubbish.

24th February 2016

ok drinking gin

fine for a pub G&T

25th October 2015

Good presentation

Neither here nor there! Bought a bottle in Tesco and tried it with FeverTree tonic Spanish style. Didn't do a lot for me nor begged for a repeat.

15th July 2015

Good for the money

A good quality premium gin and a reasonable price but I agree that it brings nothing specially distinctive to the party. Packaging is nice though.

A Delicious gin

Quite simply a delicious gin

4th October 2014


There's nothing wrong with this gin. However, it's a bit neutral - especially for this price. Perhaps a good one for those just getting started. Lovely packaging.

Great London Dry gin

This works brilliantly in g&ts and martinis and is very reasonably priced. It was created by Jake Burger, founder of some of the best bars in Leeds, and now resident gin expert at London's Ginstitute.

not bad for yet another Thames Distillers gin
