Why black powder? Centuries ago, a Chinese Alchemist was searching for the Elixir of Life. Ironically he created gunpowder instead. The Europeans heard about magical fireworks and exploding weapons, so they went to China in search of the Black Powder. Navy Strength Gin came from these and similar expeditions. It has to be above 57% ABV, the strength at which Gin drenched gunpowder still ignites when lit. Navy's often provided rations of Gin, so this test was frequently used to check against unscrupulous employers. An admiral solution to ensuring a great drink.
Orchid Gin is at the core of this Gin. We make Orchid Gin in the same way with two small variations; we lovingly crush half the Juniper to lift the ginnyness… And we add fresh lemons along with the fresh oranges, before we cut to 58%
Nose: Gentle citrus nose followed by a herbal and spice note
Palate: Smooth and creamy, held over the tongue an earthy herbal flavour appears with a slight sweetness
Finish: Long and herbal with a slight peppery, warm finish that lingers
Very Similar to Orchid Gin, but with a surprisingly extra smoothness, try it neat, hold it in the mouth and allow the taste buds to open, warming the liquid before swallowing, the Gin has no rough edges and is creamy smooth.
