Navy Strength Gin
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.
