Turkey breast gin is here just in time for Christmas

We’re all up for quirky gin flavours, but now we think we’ve seen it all with this turkey breast flavoured gin.From London-based distiller Portobello Road gin (the people behind the gin hotel), Pechuga Gin is distilled using real turkey breast.

Created by master distiller Jake F Burger, the limited-edition spirit pays homage to everyone’s favourite Christmas meat, as well as encompassing 13 interesting botanicals. So how is turkey breast used? Taking inspiration from Mexical mezcal producers, a raw chicken or turkey breast is suspended in the still, cooking in the slowly emanating vapours, adding ‘subtle yet distinct’ flavours to the spirit.

MORE: THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE THE PERFECT G&T[3] The spirit is also distilled with 13 botanicals: apples, pears, plums, currants, raisins, sultanas, apricots, brown rice, passion fruit, cinnamon, cassia bark, as well as nutmeg and mace.

‘My love for gin is matched equally by my passion for tequila and mezcal; and so for the third instalment in our Director’s Cut series it was a natural choice for me to look across the atlantic and take inspiration from our Mexican spirit producing brothers and sisters,’ Jake says on his creation. ‘As the alcohol vapours pass through the turkey breast during distillation they add something almost indefinable to the gin. You wouldn’t really say it was turkey flavoured gin, the flavour is very subtle, and whilst it adds it also takes away, absorbing some of the more intense fruit flavours and stopping them from overwhelming the taste of the gin.’

The bottles will be available from 1 November, retailing at ?35 from Portobello Road Gin’s website, as well The Distillery’s Bottle Shop. MORE: THE SIX BIGGEST GIN DRINKING TRENDS OF 2018[4] Like this?
