Gin Navy Strength

In the 1800’s distillers proved their gin was suitable for British Royal Navy Officers by pouring their gin over gunpowder and igniting it! Our Navy Strength Gin is a contemporary twist with boosted citrus notes of sweet orange and lemongrass, then rested for two months in our corn whisky barrels for added roundness. A surprisingly smooth gin considering its high alcohol content.

DISTILLERS NOTE

Navy strength gin is at the origin of “100 British proof”, or 57% alcohol as we know it today due to distillers proving their gin was suitable for the Navy by igniting gunpowder. Our Navy Strength Gin won a gold medal at the 2020 Gin Masters in London.
