Plymouth Navy Strength Gin
For almost two centuries, Her Majesty's Naval Fleet was sustained by Plymouth Gin and no ship left port without a bottle of Navy Strength 100 proof (57% abv) on board.
For some it is the ultimate gin, with a rich but very balanced taste that takes a Martini or a Gin and Tonic to a new level. Perfect for the demands of today's more adventurous spirit drinkers and mixologists. The 57% ABV amplifies the aroma and fragrance of the botanicals, yet retains the smooth and balanced character Plymouth Gin is renowned for.
Enjoy Navy Strength in your favourite cocktail, or in classic drinks such as a Pink Gin or a Gimlet, reputedly created by the British Royal Navy for medicinal purposes.
Invented by naval doctor Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette (1857-1943), who is said to have mixed gin with the daily rations of lime 'to help the medicine go down'.
