A bottle of Portobello gin – £25, a gin master class gift voucher – £60 or a gin experience gift voucher – £110 from the Ginstitute have to be the best Notting Hill Mother’s day presents on the Portobello Market. The Ginstitute, in case you hadn’t noticed, has moved its distillery and per cent proof activities into what used to be the First and Ground Floor bars on the Portobello Road. The gin is delicious and the cocktails award winning, my mouth is watering just imagining the flavours. Nip in and order the raspberry coloured one with a pansy on the top – there is nothing like it. You can buy your lovely mum bottles of Director’s Cut No.02 – a smoky gin for £30, Local Heroes No 02 for £40 or Portobello Road Gin No171 for just £25. This one is a simple brew with no exotic extras and best served with tonic and a big slice of pink grapefruit – unbeatable tbh. theginstitute.
