Darnley's Navy Strength Gin was inspired by the rich 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. He was the senior British representative at the signing of the Armistice and it was he who made the decision to have the ceasefire come into effect at 11.00a.m effectively saving hundreds of lives.
His officers would have enjoyed a daily ration of gin that had to pass a gunpowder test to prove it was over 57% alcohol and therefore Navy Strength. This gin uses the same warming spice botanicals of our Spiced Gin but with more juniper. Great served with tonic and a wedge of pink grapefruit.
Bottled at 57.1% abv.
