GINSMITH NAVY 57%
NAVY Strength gin originated during the Napoleonic Wars when officers in the Royal Navy were given rations of gin. As gin and gunpowder were both stored in the hold of the ship any spillage of gin could potentially wet the gunpowder and render it useless. It was found that with gin at 57% the gunpowder would still ignite, hence Navy Strength gin, at 57%.
GINSMITH NAVY 57% is a spirited gin with 7 botanicals. Forward with pink peppercorn, followed by piney notes of juniper, and then grounded with wild rosemary and sage. It is extremely smooth on the palate. It is balanced and well rounded in flavour.
GINSMITH NAVY is considered our premium sipping gin. Neat or with a block of ice it offers the discerning gin drinker a delicious option other than a G&T.
Enjoyed it neat or on the rocks, or with a classic tonic, garnished with rosemary, a black olive, and a twist of citrus peel. It is delicious as a Gin Martini or a Negroni.
