Naming the gin after the renowned Admiral, distiller Neil Harrison set sail to craft a gin that was worthy of the name. Crafted in the picturesque Peak District, the first step to making the gin is to use only the finest water, which goes through a natural reed bed system before moving on to a more advance filtration system.
Of course we aren’t here to talk about mineral water; the crystal clear water is eventually infused with the finest botanicals from the furthest corners of the globe. To name but a few we have lemongrass and Kaffir lime from Thailand, vanilla from Madagascar and sweet Sri-Lankan cinnamon. This is all distilled to make a gin that sits at 42.5%.
A heady mix I think you’ll agree, but is the gin a voyage of discovery or does it sink?
Fox's Tasting Notes
Upon boarding the good ship HMS Gin you are hit with a full broadside of juniper, which mellows into the sweet citrus taste of lime – no fear of scurvy here. As fresh as a dip in the English Channel, the gin really opens up over ice adding an almost cucumber freshness.
