HMS Spirits Dreadnought Gin is the second in the fleet for this Hampshire distillery. A fantastic navy strength gin at 57.5%. Navy strength got its name because a warship’s gunpowder soaked in alcohol with a strength of 57% or above would still ignite. This is also where the term ‘Proof’ came from.
A well-balanced juniper heavy London Dry Gin. Subtle notes of grapefruit liven the front of the palate followed by a soft Rosemary finish. HMS Spirits Dreadnought Gin is carefully distilled in small batches using a copper pot still and retains a higher essential oil content which gives it a richness and ensures its smoothness on the palate.
Perfect Serve: Fever Tree Indian Tonic with a slice of Pink Grapefruit and a sprig of Rosemary
