Plymouth Gin Navy Strength 57% 70cl
From one of the oldest distilleries in England, Plymouth Gin Navy Strength packs a punch at 57%. Why 'Navy Strength'? Because back in the days of naval officers and sailors being giving a tot every day to literally keep their spirits up (gin for officers, rum for the rest of the crew), officers were able to prove the liquid had a high alcohol content by soaking gunpowder in it, then trying to set it alight. The point at which a liquid will still set gunpowder alight in 57% ABV - otherwise known as 100 Proof.
Also, casks of the daily rations were kept below deck, normally close to the cannons. Although it sounds like a health and safety nightmare, if there was leaking or spillage from the barrels that seeped into the gunpowder during a time of battle, it meant they could still fire.
Plymouth Gin is a slightly softer gin than others, with a lovely fragrant touch to it. It's fantastic for a Martini with an extra kick - and to be honest sips beutifully even at such a high strength, such is the rich mouthfeel and depth of flavour.
