Once upon a time a regular at Royal Navy ships, this is one intense and bold bottle.

Right there on the cobbled streets of the Plymouth harbor lies an old building that is said to have been built in the early 1400s. Once supposedly a monastery, the Plymouth Gin Distillery, also known as the Black Friars Distillery, has been in operation since 1793, making it the oldest Gin distillery in England. It is there that Master Gin Distiller Sean Harrison crafts delicious Spirits using their 200-years-old recipe that is passed down verbally to each new Master Distiller.

The name Navy Strength Gin is pretty straightforward. For almost two centuries, no Royal Navy ship left port without the grain Spirit, bottled at precisely 114 proof – benchmark strength for a Spirit to ignite gunpowder. Featuring 7 botanicals (the ratio is obviously a secret), starting with juniper berries, coriander seed, orange peels, lemon peels, angelica root, green cardamom and orris root, this is an intense, bold and aromatic bottle. Batch distilled in original Victorian copper stills, this one's collected so many Gold Medals, it would be boring to list them all.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers spent their last night in England at the distillery buildings before embarking on the Mayflower’s epic voyage to America. The Mayflower still forms part of Plymouth Gin’s label to this day.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
