Jake Burger, Co-Founder of Portobello Road Gin and multi award winning bartender by trade, has been with the brand since he and 3 close friends spent 9 months perfecting the recipe at The Ginstitute back in 2011. The Ginstitute, which became home to a diminutive 30L copper pot Still, was the birthplace of Portobello Road Gin, on 171 Portobello Road, Notting Hill.
The creation of the recipe and the branding was a project led by Jake. He continues to represent the brand globally and is Portobello Road Gin’ s and The Ginstitute’ s lead Gin Instructor. He has also been influential in creating Portobello Road Gin’ s new home, The Distillery, just a few steps away at 186 Portobello Road. Jake would love to welcome you to Portobello Road Gin’ s new home to learn a comprehensive history of Gin, blend your own Gin and even stay at the Gin hotel!
