When you smell Porter’s Modern Classic Gin, your nose will be filled by juniper berry aromas complemented by notes of citrus, cinnamon and pink peppercorns.
When you taste Porter’s Modern Classic Gin, you’ll notice strong juniper flavours with an earthy depth and fresh citrus notes. It is warm and clean on the palette with a sweet nutmeg finish.
Modern Classic Gin is made in Porter’s distillery, conveniently nested in the basement of The Orchid, the founding team’s bar in Aberdeen, Scotland. The gin is produced in one of three stills that the team keeps running perpetually before it gets sent off for bottling.
While Porter’s Gin wasn’t released until 2015, the idea came in 2009 after Ben opened a cocktail bar in Aberdeen. He wanted to create a product of his own product that would bring something new to the table and add value to the gin sector. Along with his friends Alex and Josh, the team used a rotary evaporator and worked through endless iterations to match their ideal flavour profile. The result is a light tasting gin with a unique citrus flavour.
Porter’s Gin specializes in flavour creation and botanical distillation, rather than the production of spirits from grain itself. They use dual distilling techniques, using both in-house and out-of-house tools and ingredients. First, they purchase a neutral grain spirit from G&J Distillers to be used as their blank canvas. This base is made using high heat distillation which allows their main ingredients like juniper to taste punchy. Porter’s then add their set of unique botanicals and use cold distillation to preserve their delicate flavours.
Porter's founders Alex, Ben, and Josh emboss this phrase on the bottom of each of their bottles because, well, it is! In 2015 the team started playing with cold-distillation to bring flavours out of ingredients for creating new and interesting cocktails, before long they decided to create their own gin. They are a team dedicated to creating high-flavour, high-quality gins using modern techniques that are built for mixing, sharing, and creating better drinks.More on the Brand
