Navy Strength Gin

<p><span>Navy Strength Gin is an intense but smooth gin, made for cocktails. This overproof gin is distilled with native finger limes and fresh ginger in the botanical basket, giving it great power and intensity. Turmeric adds weight to the palate and a fresh but earthy quality, and the palate is sweet and juicy but still very clean.</span></p>

Back in the nineteenth century gin was thought to be panacea to many things encountered on the high seas. The gimlet was invented by a doctor in the Royal Navy to ward off scurvy, with gin to fortify and Roses Lime cordial for Vitamin C. 

But several of the more gin-savvy officers of the Royal Navy suspected their supplies of gin were being diluted so they devised a test.

Often the gin was stored below deck adjacent to the gunpowder and if it was spilt onto the gunpowder and it smoked, the gin had been diluted. Only if the gunpowder still lit was the gin at least 114 proof (or 57% ABV). And so it became known as Navy Strength.

Four Pillars Navy Strength is a gin very much in the Four Pillars style, but with the volume turned up slightly beyond 11. Fresh ginger brings spiciness to the gin, while turmeric adds weight and a lovely earthiness. Also in the botanical basket are some native finger limes, grown in Byron Bay. They have an intensity of flavour that is almost impossible to believe, and they help the gin attain super citrus notes and lovely high-toned freshness.

At 58.8% ABV this gin can support some more robust and delicious botanicals from around the world.

Navy Strength Gin was our first made for bartenders, perfect to mix in a range of cocktails.
MEET WILMA
MEET WILMA
Wilma has a 450L capacity pot, a swans neck and a botanical basket (where we put our whole oranges).

Seven distinctive aroma plates in her column act to further refine the spirit which follows through to a condenser.

The gin comes out of Wilma at a breathtaking 93.5% alc/vol (187 proof) before we adjust it back to drinking strength, depending on what we’e making.

There’s a bunch of distillery-geek stuff about the levels of purity we can achieve with Wilma’s seven plate column, but when Cam starts talking about it he sounds a bit too ‘Walter White’, so we’ll just say this… the resulting gin has an incredible purity and smoothness for such a high alcohol content. It’s definitely not rocket fuel!
