French Champagne meets Scottish Gin.

In 2009, Ben Iravani opened a trendy bar in Aberdeen, Scotland. Even as that business flourished, he had dreams of something more. Alex Lawrence joined the bar team and shared the passion for crafting a custom Spirit. Soon they had recruited a local friend — Josh Rennie — to join them. And after years of experimentation they came up with their ideal recipe of botanicals infusions and a unique method to extract them using cold vacuum distillation to avoid heating up the ingredients. They were helped to create their special vacuum still by Professor Andrew Porter of the University of Aberdeen and named their Spirit after him.

The guys aren’t strangers to fine French Wines either and they have a special penchant for Blanc de Blanc Champagne. Voilà, l’inspiration pour Porter’s Orchard Gin. Inspired by Champagne’s Chardonnay grapes and that intense fruitiness, it was crafted from 100% British wheat with cold-distilled green apples and pears over their classic juniper base. The innovation doesn’t stop there, though. A soybean distillate is used to leave behind sophisticated butter and biscuit notes. Enjoy this one in a G&T with a an apple slice for garnish or make the French 75 cocktail with a twist.
