Navy Strength American Gin
In the 18th century, the British Royal Navy rationed "proof spirits", later dubbed "navy strength", for their ships' crews. These spirits with ABVs exceeding 55%, were stored alongside gunpowder, and were intentionally kept at a higher proof to protect the powder from damage, should the spirit leak from their barrels and drench the munitions.
Once fermentation of their house-made spirit is complete, each ingredient is distilled individually. This practice expresses the character of each distinctive profile to create a commanding, aromatic gin honouring its maritime tradition.
