Portobello Road - Temperance GinLow Calorie
Bottled at 4.2% ABV, Temperance by Portobello Road, has been crafted especially for gin-fans who are looking to moderate their intake of alcohol yet don’t want to compromise on flavour.
Temperance, which means moderation, was created by Portobello Road Gin’s award-winning co-founder, Jake F. Burger and has been distilled using the same nine time-honoured botanicals that comprise Portobello Road Gin’s signature London Dry and Navy Strength. Jake developed bespoke techniques and added additional ingredients, such as naturally high mineral content water, botanical hydrosols and one or two secret ingredients to ensure the spirit harbours the intensity of flavour, texture and depth demanded by the modern drinker.
The resulting flavour profile is instantly weighty, with viscosity and a pleasant acidic sharpness. In the mouth the citrus, floral, and particularly the winter spice notes are more pronounced than the nose would suggest, then eventually give way to juniper and pepper.
A serve made with 50ml of Temperance mixed with 200ml tonic water holds just 0.8% ABV, while a classic ‘equal parts Negroni’ made with Temperance instead of Portobello Road London Dry will be almost 50% lower in alcohol and contain just 1.1 units.
