First supplied to the English Admiralty in 1863, we make our Navy Strength Royal Dock Gin by hand in London to this day. The style is bright and bracing but not at all overpowering with a brilliant balance of juniper, coriander and citrus and a softly nuanced mouthfeel that belies the high bottling strength.
In 19th Century England higher-proof gin was distilled especially for the English Navy to prevent the gin from dampening gunpowder stored on-board if spilled.
This hearty style of gin is suited perfectly to mixing a classic Pink Gin or Navy Strength Gimlet.
