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 quality tonic, a wedge of pink grapefruit and lots of ice!
NoseClementine, nutmeg, spruce, cinnamon, freshly grated black pepper.
Taste Ginger, citrus with a sweet and fresh character.
Finish Ginger, cinnamon, rich fruit, milled pepper and orange rind mixes well with the spice.
About Darnley's Gin
Darnley's Gin are small batch gin makers in Fife, Scotland who have won over thirty international gin awards since they started in 2010. Our Head Distiller Scott Gowans makes Darnley's Gin in a traditional copper pot still, who we've named "Dorothy", in the London Dry style which has been around for centuries. We chose to make our gin this way as we feel it produces a gin with uncompromising quality and flavour.
