Navy Gin

Our Navy gin was created for our gin enthusiasts. We use the same ingredients as our classic dry, but a whole lot more of them so the bold savoury flavours shine through with that double juniper hit. Perfect neat, or mixed. ABV 57%

A powerful alcoholic expression

This gin is linked back to the early days, when the cellar in our hotel was used as storage for rum and whisky barrels offloaded from ships locally. Navy strength means that our gin is bottled at 57%. Gin-savvy officers of the Royal Navy wanted to ensure their gin supplies were not diluted. To test, they would spill gin onto gunpowder. If it smoked, the gin had been diluted. If it lit, then the gin was at least 57%.
