Our Navy Strength edition of our award-winning Spiced Gin was inspired by the illustrious Royal Navy career of our ancestor Sir Rosslyn Wemyss, who commanded ships around the world and rose to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. During his time at sea, ships’ officers still enjoyed a daily ration of gin which had to pass a gunpowder test to prove it was over 57% alcohol and therefore Navy Strength.
Using the same botanicals as Darnley’s Spiced Gin, we have added more juniper to our recipe and increased the proof to bring you a bold Navy Strength gin with intense warming spice flavour.
Clementine, nutmeg, spruce, cinnamon, freshly grated black pepper.
Ginger, citrus with a sweet and fresh character.
Ginger, cinnamon, rich fruit, milled pepper and orange rind mixes well with the spice.
