The Ginstitute says
Created by Purveyors of London's Spirit, Portobello Road Gin – The Ginstitute is the ultimate gin experience, allowing discerning drinkers to craft their own unique gin recipe to take home.

The interactive and intimate experience will captivate any intellectual (and thirsty) fellow. As master distiller and entertaining raconteur Jake F.Burger and his expert team of ginstructors take guests on a historic whistle stop journey, revising the miserable gin era of London in the 1700’s made famous by Hogarth’s iconic ‘Gin Lane’ tableau, through 300 years of heritage belonging to Britain’s national spirit.

Lubricated by gin cocktails, Ginstitute ‘students’ then move on to one of The Blending Rooms in The Distillery to learn about the botanicals used to flavour gin and with the help of The Ginstitute’s gin gurus, create their own bespoke blend to take away in a personally signed bottle.

Each individual’s recipe is kept on file at The Ginstitute allowing its ingenious Alumni to re-order their gin and continue to enjoy it at home.

The Ginstitute is nestled in the basement of The Distillery, a four floor mecca for discerning drinkers located on the iconic Portobello Road. The Distillery is also home to two bar/kitchens, immersive dining, tequila experiences and a premium bottle shop.
