There are some fantastic Local Spirits In Portsmouth coming from our friends at Portsmouth Distillery. Recently they have unveiled a world first new spirit… A botanical garden rum! They use five of the botanicals that they use in their Fort Gin (elderflower, gorse flower, coriander, sweet orange and fresh lime peel) and distil these with their 1968 White Rum. This creates a wonderful and intriguing spirit that will really get you talking. The five chosen botanicals represent the five corners of pentagon Fort.
A Rum for Gin lovers and a Rum for Rum lovers looking for something different. It is called Forum.. What are you waiting for Join the conversation.
The Portsmouth Distillery sits in the heart of Fort Cumberland, a beautiful 18th Century fort on the south eastern tip of Portsea Island. This idyllic, tranquil location has been a real inspiration for the creation of this world class gin. We lovingly distil handmade small batches of fine Portsmouth Dry Gin using a recipe based on five key botanicals three of which are Elderflower, Gorse Flower and Sea Radish, foraged from the grounds of the Fort. When these are combined with our own blend of aromatic botanicals, they produce an exceptional gin which has a rich, full, floral bouquet, is silky smooth on the palate yet with a robust ‘Fort’ flavour and delicious warmth on the finish.

Gin Producers In Hampshire – About Portsmouth Distillery:
Building the Dream
Starting a distillery from scratch, as you might imagine, is not an easy task, it requires real commitment and belief in our abilities and our products. Through hard work and dedication, coupled with a passion and meticulous attention to detail we aim give Portsmouth a group of spirits they will be rightly proud of. We have opened our account with two exceptional products: Fort Gin and 1968 white unaged rum.
We were passionate that the Portsmouth distillery had to be somewhere on Portsea Island with history and a heritage (which this historic waterfront island has a plenty), to which we could connect. Fort Cumberland, with it’s obvious history and role in the defence of Portsmouth harbour, and latterly its role in housing the Royal Marine’s Anti-Aircraft Brigade, all struck a chord with our founders, especially two with their naval service and in particular Anti Air Warfare background.
Future plans include several more products, inspired by our surroundings. We also aim to have a visitors centre in order to welcome in the people of Portsmouth and from further a field, in order to demonstrate first hand our real passion and drive to be the premier distillery on the south coast and beyond.
